Chelsea were comfortably beaten 1-0 at Stamford Bridge by top-of-the-table Manchester City on Saturday evening.
Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne scored the only goal of the game but, in truth, the scoreline was kind to Chelsea.
Antonio Conte's tactics were surprisingly defensive and Manchester City's goalkeeper Ederson was barely tested.
The Premier League champions were so impressive away at Atletico Madrid in the Champions League but failed to re-produce a performance even close to that standard against Pep Guardiola's side.
Clutching his hamstring, star striker Alvaro Morata came off injured in the first half which surely did not help Chelsea's cause.
Manchester City have only conceded one goal in their last seven fixtures in all competitions and the signing of Ederson from Benfica appears to be an inspired decision.
Club legend Shaun Goater certainly thinks so.
Signed from Barcelona, Chilean goalkeeper Claudio Bravo struggled badly in his debut season at the Etihad and now finds himself firmly behind the 24-year-old Brazilian in the pecking order.
Ederson's ridiculous pinpoint pass
The young goalkeeper has been widely praised for his distribution since moving to England this summer, producing a stunning pass for Sergio Aguero against Shakhtar last week.
His long range pass to Raheem Sterling late on in the 1-0 victory over Chelsea was arguably even better.
Ederson hit a laser pass which landed right on the boot of the pacy English winger, who had no trouble at all bringing it under his control.
Twitter was amazed at the incredible pass. Check out some of the reaction below.
Manchester City face Stoke, Burnley and West Brom in their next three league outings and Ederson will surely fancy himself to rack up a few more clean sheets.
He cost the Citizens £34.7m but his early performances suggest it was an absolute bargain.
Pep Guardiola paid tribute to injured duo Benjamin Mendy and Sergio Aguero in his post-match interview.
“I want to dedicate this game for Benjamin and to Sergio," said Guardiola. "Every guy is going to fight to keep going.
“We are so sad for Benjamin; he’s a guy who gives us a different spirit in the locker room. Sergio as well, but hopefully he’ll be back soon.
“We came here to win. This is my first time as a manager I won in this stadium
“We are so happy, but the most important thing is to win the game, the way we played in the second half was really good."
