Watch: Julian Alvarez Scores In Back-To-Back Games For Manchester City
Watch Julian Alvarez restore Manchester City’s three goal lead against Southampton.
Pep Guardiola made the decision to start Erling Haaland instead of Alvarez as he was back to full fitness and it was the correct call as the Norwegian opened the scoring with a clinical header just before half-time.
In the second-half Jack Grealish doubled City’s lead following in to bury the rebound after Gavin Bazunu had saved his initial effort.
Grealish was involved in the third goal as well as his precise cross was met by Haaland who got his 30th league of the campaign in brilliant acrobatic fashion.
