Julián Álvarez shines in Manchester City’s dominant victory over Luton Town in the Premier League

Julián Álvarez was important again in a new victory for Manchester City in the Premier League. In the match valid for Matchday 33 of the Premier League against Luton Town, those led by Josep Guardiola took another step on their way to the title and won comfortably 5-1 at the Etihad stadium. The former River contributed an assist for Mateo Kovacic, after a prepared play from a corner that ended with a bomb by the Croatian midfielder.

Everything started with a positive aura for the Citizens, who within 2 minutes were already ahead on the scoreboard due to the goal against the Japanese Daiki Hashioka. However, the visitors maintained the minimal disadvantage despite the abysmal difference in the squad hierarchy. Only after 20 minutes of the complement were Pep’s men able to strike again through their laboratory: Julián combined with the Belgian Jeremy Doku after a corner kick and Araña (who completed the 90 minutes) located a Kovacic free kick that subdued Belgian goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski with a shocking bomb.

That would not be the entire repertoire of City and mainly of its attacker Doku, who created a penalty that the Norwegian Erling Haaland exchanged for the third for his team. After a while, Luton responded with a discount from Ross Barkley, who retaliated with the goal of honor. However, at the end it was Doku himself who paved the way for the rout that would have the final score of 5-1 for the last goal from the Norwegian Oscar Bobb.

With this result, the Citizens took two points ahead of Arsenal and Liverpool, who will play tomorrow: the Reds will host Crystal Palace from 10 (Argentine time), while the Gunners will do the same with Aston Villa de Dibu Martínez starting at 12:30 (Argentine time).

Next week, Manchester City will define their Champions League quarterfinal series against Real Madrid at the Etihad stadium (after the 3-3 draw in Spain). The next match will be the key to the FA Cup semi-finals against Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea (in the other semi-final are Coventry and Manchester United). What does City have left in the English league? They will visit Brighton and Nottingham Forest, host Wolverhampton, visit Fulham and Tottenham and close at home against West Ham.
