The Manchester City goalkeeper now has the same number of assists as Mesut Ozil, Anthony Martial and Arjen Robben this campaign. 

He, in fact, has set up more goals than Liverpool’s Naby Keita, Jorginho, Isco and Marco Verratti. 

Kyle Walker is now fearing Ederson will have better numbers than him at the end of the season. 

Walker said on Twitter: ‘When he tells you he’ll end up with more assists than you…and now you’re starting to get worried.’

Gary Lineker was impressed as he said: ‘Never mind his goalkeeping, what a player Ederson is with the ball at his feet. 

‘Imagine playing against a keeper who passes it better than you.’

Someone else said: ‘What a ball from Ederson, yet Alisson is still better?’  

City took the lead through Sergio Aguero against the Bundesliga side on Wednesday but went behind to two Nabil Bentaleb penalties. 

Leroy Sane then scored a stunning free-kick to equalise for Pep Guardiola’s side before Sterling came up with a late winner.
