Man City goalkeeper Ederson wore Crystal Palace socks for tonight's game

Ederson's choice of socks during the Premier League clash between Crystal Palace and Manchester City caused a stir on social media.
Erling Haaland scored the only goal of the game from the spot to record his 28th league goal from just 26 games.
The Norwegian striker's goal got fans talking online and so did Ederson wearing Palace's away socks for the whole match on Saturday.
He was pictured wearing Palace's away socks before the game, with people on social media then noticing it during the game.
The 29-year-old was forced to wear the white socks because the Man City goalkeeper kit includes blue socks, which would've clashed with Palace's home socks.
Ederson sporting Palace's away socks didn't go unnoticed by fans on social media.
One Twitter user joked: "Sunday League at its finest."
A second questioned: "I’m pretty sure Ederson is wearing Palace socks... anyone agree?"
A third said: "Ederson wearing palaces away socks?"
A Palace fan mocked his own side, tweeting: "The closest we’ve been to winning a game in 2023."
A Man City fan commented: "He’s always playing against us tbf."
Another wrote: "Has Ederson borrowed somebody’s socks."

Ederson won't have a problem with his attire for his team's next few games as they host the likes of RB Leipzig in the Champions League, Burnley in the FA Cup and Liverpool in the league in the coming weeks.
The Blues, meanwhile, are just two points behind Arsenal, who return to action on Sunday when they travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham.
