Manchester City’s Ederson showed Manchester United “pure disrespect” as he was spotted taking a break during Sunday’s Manchester derby.

The Brazilian keeper was largely untroubled during his side’s comfortable 4-1 win over their cross-city rivals as they re-established their six-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

With City leading 2-1, Ederson was spotted crouching on the edge of the centre circle, with his goal left gaping behind him, as his side took a free-kick deep in the United half.

Ederson was rarely called into action during a disappointing afternoon for United, as they managed just two shots on target

Fans were left shocked by Ederson’s laid-back approach after spotting the 28-year-old keeper squatting just yards away from the halfway line.

He appeared unbothered by the threat of a United counter-attack or the risk of being lobbed by an opponent given his distance from goal

Supporters quickly flocked to social media after spotting Ederson’s position on the pitch to react to his antics.

One fan joked: “Even Ederson got bored.”

Another tweeted: “Look at Ederson… This is pure disrespect of another level.”

A third supporter wrote: “State of Ederson here.”

Meanwhile, another fan added: “Just look at Ederson.”

United mustered a total of just five shots on Sunday, with only two of them being on target, including Jadon Sancho’s first-half equaliser.

In addition, the Red Devils touched the ball just four times in the City penalty area during the second half.

As for City, Pep Guardiola’s side had 24 shots during the match, with 10 of them being on target.
