Scott Carson, Manchester City’s third-choice goalkeeper, is expected to start against Leicester on Saturday, marking his first important Premier League game in almost ten years – 3,765 days to be exact.
Due to the absence of Ederson and Zack Steffen, Pep Guardiola’s hand has been pressed, and the champions may have to rely on the 36-year-old Carson against Brendan Rodgers’ team.
The Brazilian FA is leading the way in South America in retaliating against clubs who prevent its players from visiting’red-list’ countries by imposing a ‘five-day limitation’ on the players they summoned, despite the fact that they did not fly.
That means City’s No. 1 Ederson is ineligible to play, and the club could face FIFA sanctions if they start him.
A five-day playing ban is automatically implemented if a national association asks it, according to a rule agreed upon by the 211 member states.
And, with the exception of Richarlison, who has a close relationship with Everton, the Brazil FA is enforcing the rule for players who were barred from joining the team by their Premier League clubs due to coronavirus quarantine requirements.
