Julián Álvarez’s goal for City and Aston Villa’s role in the FA Cup

Julian Alvarez premiered his world champion badge as a starter this Sunday at the Manchester City and scored one of his team’s four goals to thrash the Chelsea and advance to the round of 32 of the England FA Cup.

The Cordovan rejoined the English club late due to the National Team’s celebrations in Argentina and he had barely added 3 minutes in City’s four games since English football resumedin a 1-1 draw against Everton in the Premier League.

Taking advantage of multiple competition, Josep Guardiola sent Álvarez in on Sunday to face a rival whom he had just defeated three days ago, by Premier (1-0).

This time the victory was much more accessible for City, who closed the first half 3-0 up with goals by Algerian Riyad Mahrez at 23, Julián at 30, from a penalty, and Phil Foden at 38. In the second part, the Algerian increased again at 85, also from a penalty.

with his conquest, the 22-year-old striker born in Canchín has scored 8 goals in 22 games (10 as a starter) since he arrived at the English club.

City will play again next Saturday 14 no less than in the Manchester classic, against United, from 9:30. Guardiola’s team is second in the Premier League, five points behind Mikel Arteta’s surprising Arsenal after 17 dates played.

Stevenage hit, Aston Villa paper

Meanwhile, the one who couldn’t advance to the next round in the FA Cup was Aston Villa, surprised by Stevenage of the Fourth Division of England.

The one who got out of the paper was the Dibu Martínez, who stayed on the bench and the goal was occupied by the Swede Robin Olsen. For his part, Emiliano Buendía, also from Mar del Plata, played the last half hour of the game where Stevenage, who was a visitor, made an unexpected comeback.

Villa took the lead after 33 minutes through French midfielder Morgan Sanson but when hopes for the visit were running out, at 84 the opportunity came: a penalty, the expulsion of Belgian Leander Dendocker and a goal from Northern Ireland Jamie Reid to make it 1-1.

It is seen that the coup was not well digested by those led by the Spanish Unai Emery since it barely at 89, after a defensive nap in a corner, the Scotsman Dean Campbell made it 2-1 with a left-footed shot to the near post from Olsen.

Aston Villa are running a forgettable campaign, which already forced him to change coaches – he fired the legendary Steven Gerard and brought in Emery – to trace history. In the Premier he marches 11th, after staying many dates close to relegation.
