A gruesome new image has shown the after effects of Sadio Mane's challenge on Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes.

The goalkeeper, 24, was on the end of a studs up tackle from Mane during the 5-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.

Mane was sent off for the challenge that left a brutal gash on the side of Ederson's face. He has been banned for three games

A photo, which appears to have been taken in the changing room after the Brazil youth international received stitches, has shown the damage caused by Mane's challenge.

One nasty cut is poignant down Ederson's left cheek, while another cut also required stitches close to his eye.

Mane has since apologised for the collision and has wished the goalkeeper well in his recovery.
