Guardiola set to appoint goalkeeper Ederson as Man City new penalty taker

Pep Guardiola says he will consider making Ederson the team's penalty taker after midfielder Ilkay Gundogan missed from the spot against Liverpool on Sunday.
Manchester City were awarded a first-half penalty on Sunday after Raheem Sterling was knocked down by Reds defender Fabinho.

Gundogan stepped up, but his spot kick was skied up and over the bar and into the Kop, leaving the score level headed into the second half.


City have made four and missed three from the spot this season, with Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling also failing to convert.

"A lot of emotions, many things happening in the game," Guardiola told BBC. "Gundogan missed a penalty, it's like a routine against them, but we started really really well, doing what we want to do. In the second half, the way we react to the goal, the way we played with quality made the difference.

"We knew that we should continue with what we have done the last month or two months, and that's what we did well... For many years we were not able to win here, hopefully next time we can do it with people. Anfield is so intimidating."

The German made amends after he scored twice in the game shortly after Mohamed Salah converted a penalty. 

Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden added two more goals for City. 

He added: "It's a problem that we have. In important moments, we cannot miss it, and it doesn't matter the taker. Again, I'm going to think about Ederson, he might be the taker next time."
