Manchester City pair Ederson and Gabriel Jesus will be available to face Leicester City this afternoon, after the Brazilian FA agreed to waive their five-day ban for missing international duty.
It is believed that a compromise has been reached with all Premier League clubs so their Brazilian contingent can play this weekend, with an agreement also in place for what happens in the next international break.
Fans on Twitter are very happy that both Ederson and Jesus are eligible to play at the King Power Stadium today:

Negotiations went down to the wire but it’s good that all sides have managed to resolve their differences. If Ederson had missed out, it would have forced manager Pep Guardiola into choosing Scott Carson, whist Jesus’s absence would also have been a blow considering his excellent start to the campaign. Their involvement against the Foxes could be the difference as they look to secure an important win.
