EDERSON caused a stir on social media with his choice of socks during Manchester City’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.
Some eagle-eyed fans went into total meltdown when they noticed that the City goalkeeper was actually wearing Palace’s away socks at Selhurst Park.
The Brazil international had to don white socks because the blue ones he was supposed to have would’ve clashed with the Eagles’ home socks.
That didn’t go unnoticed during the game as fans took to Twitter to express their shock.
One tweeted: “Ederson’s socks are throwing me off.”
Another posted: “Has Ederson borrowed somebody’s socks?”
A third wrote: “Sunday League at its finest.”
This Palace supporter joked: “The closest we’ve been to winning a game in 2023.”
And that one tweeted: “Ederson wearing palaces away socks?”
Ederson’s surprise kit quirk, though, had no effect on his performance as he still picked up a clean sheet.
