John Stones praised Stefan Ortega after Manchester City secured a 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield. With Ederson injured and substituted during the game, all eyes were on how Ortega would perform as his replacement. The Manchester City goalkeeper did not disappoint, making crucial saves to keep the visitors in the game against a dominant Liverpool side in the second half.

One standout moment was Ortega’s brilliant save to deny Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez from scoring. He made himself big and prevented a tap-in goal. Later on, Ortega made another important stop from a long-range effort to keep the ball out of the net. Impressed by Ortega’s performance, John Stones described him as an “incredible” goalkeeper and praised his intelligent saves.

Stones acknowledged the difficulty of coming off the bench to face a strong Liverpool side at Anfield, highlighting Ortega’s readiness and composure. Despite limited playing time in key matches, Ortega rose to the challenge and proved his ability with a heroic display. His performance mirrored that of Caoimhín Kelleher, who has excelled as a backup to Alisson Becker for Liverpool.

Stefan Ortega’s showing against Liverpool ensured that Ederson’s absence was not felt during the crucial game.
