Rumors started to grow that Manchester City and Pep Guardiola are looking for another goalkeeper this summer, and one of the suggested goalkeepers is Aston Villa's Emiliano Martinez. The World Champion with Argentina has become one of the world's best goalkeepers in the world for the past few years, and while he is one of the best in the Premier League, he also makes a few mistakes. Martinez made a terrible mistake in the Aston Villa vs Liverpool match in the Premier League as he pushed the ball into his own net. It was an unusual own goal, as a cross from Harvey Elliott wasn't properly caught by the Argentine keeper, and when he tried to grab the ball again, his hand pushed it past the line to give Liverpool the lead.

The Argentine keeper has a terrible record no goalkeeper would want to have. Emi Martinez has become the first goalkeeper in Premier League history to score three own goals. The Argentine keeper was unlucky with this own goal as he had the cross covered, but the slight mismanagement of the ball led to Liverpool's opening goal.

This would not be appealing to Pep Guardiola, who wants a keeper who doesn't commit mistakes like that. Ederson is one of the best keepers in the world and arguably the best keeper with his feet, but he is also vulnerable to mistakes during a game. The Brazilian keeper joined Manchester City in 2017, and their backup keeper Stefan Ortega joined in 2022 but could leave since he wants to play more. Guardiola and Manchester City will have to continue to have a look at Martinez and decide whether to keep Ortega or sell him to bring in Martinez next season.
