Manchester City defender Eric Garcia has been released from the hospital after his collision with team-mate Ederson in Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Arsenal on Wednesday. The 19-year-old Spaniard crashed into the goalkeeper late in the match and was taken to the hospital after leaving the pitch on a stretcher.

On Thursday Ederson posted a reassuring picture of the pair together and the club has now confirmed that Garcia has left the hospital and has no further damage to his head or neck. There were fears for a serious injury after the defender was carried off the pitch in a neck brace while receiving oxygen.

The young Spanish defender played his third Premier League match for Man City and he was surprisingly picked ahead of Fernandinh and Nicolas Otamendi. Head coach Pep Guardiola was impressed with the performances of Garcia before he was forced off the pitch.Β “Eric came back incredibly well,” the City boss said.

“He is so intelligent to guide the line. It was not easy to play against [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang. He is training really well and we tried to work with [coaches] Juanma [Lillo] and Rodolfo [Borrell] in this period. He understands perfectly well. This season, especially in the winter time, he always played good. He doesn’t make mistakes. He is always focused.”
