In the immediate aftermath of Argentina’s World Cup victory in December, the narrative around Julian Alvarez spread about how strange it was for someone to be good enough to win the biggest prize of all but not make the Manchester City team .

At this point, Alvarez appeared to be a replacement for Erling Haaland.

No longer.

In a newly formed squad affected by experienced departures and injuries, Alvarez has emerged as one of the most important players.

He creates chances for others, has excellent close control and also scores goals.

His first one against Red Star was brilliant. He moved at full speed, kept his composure and eventually scored the goal City craved, turning the game on its head.
