Video: New City keeper picks up back-pass on his debut

Posted by

Zack Steffen was given his Premier League debut by Pep Guardiola today as Ederson was withdrawn from the squad along with 4 others of which 3 are confirmed positive Covid-19 cases. The outbreak at Manchester City means we are seeing players that we might not have seen before in the League like defender Luke Mbete-Tabu taking Nathan Ake’s place on the bench. City’s away game to Chelsea kicked off at 16:30 and got off to a shaky start for the American goalkeeper as he managed to pick the ball up in the 4′, the only problem was it was a back pass that he picked up.

Chelsea were given an indirect free-kick on the edge of the box which Mount teed to Ziyech who then blasted it wide.

Even the Chelsea admin found the scenario bizarre, it must be the debut nerves hitting the 25 year old. Will he keep a clean sheet today?
