Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson wants to take the decisive penalty in Saturday’s Champions League final.

City will be making their first appearance in the European showpiece against Premier League rivals Chelsea this weekend at Porto’s Estadio do Dragao.

Ederson will likely feature between the sticks for Pep Guardiola’s side, and has revealed that he will be one of the players to step up if the contest has to be decided by a penalty shoot-out.

Asked how he would react to being asked to take a spot-kick on Europe’s biggest stage, the Brazilian told TNT Sports: “I am [on the list]. I don’t need to train much, but the fifth one, I’m taking it. The decisive one. I think I’ll take the fifth one.”

Ederson has racked up 47 appearances across all competitions for City this term, recording 26 clean sheets along the way. He has had two assist for his teammates so far this season.
