The finest player for Pep Guardiola’s team thus far this season has not been Erling Haaland, who may be scoring goals for Manchester City, but Julian Alvarez.
According to Micah Richards, a BBC Sport analyst and former Manchester City player.
Julian Alvarez, a star for Manchester City, has received praise from Richards, who called him the team’s greatest player this year.
“I think if you look at the system, tactically, how they set up, Alvarez has been Man City’s best player,” the commentator remarked on BBC Radio 5 Live.
Because he has been playing at position 10 directly behind Haaland, he has been the best player.
In eight Premier League games this season for the Citizens, the 23-year-old has three goals and three assists.
The international from Argentina, who can play as a winger, forward, or attacking midfielder, has also contributed one assist and three goals in two starts and one substitute appearances for Pep Guardiola’s team in the UEFA Champions League this season.
In eight Premier League games for City this season, Norwegian striker Haaland has eight goals and one assist.
In two appearances in the UEFA Champions League this season, the 23-year-old has failed to score.
In my opinion, Julian Alvarez is a key member of the Manchester City team.
Although manager Pep Guardiola has found a method to put the Argentine beside the Norwegian striker, Julian Alvarez is best upfront like Erling Haaland.
And it appears that the 23-year-old is thriving in his position at City.
Alvarez, who helped Argentina win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, will likely have a significant impact on City this year, in my opinion.
The Citizens are looking to win the Premier League, the UEFA Champions League, and the FA Cup this season, just like they did last.
Alvarez, in my opinion, will need to be at the top of his game the entire campaign for City to be successful in their endeavor.
