Manchester City striker Julian Alvarez maintained an impressive goalscoring record after scoring in the 4-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday.

Alvarez’s goal, which cancelled out Mo Salah’s opener, maintained his perfect record of scoring in every Etihad match he’s started this season. It’s 11 from nine for the 23-year-old.

Alvarez has 13 goals in all competitions since his arrival at City and while Erling Haaland has plundered an incredible 42, including 31 on home turf, he’s failed to find the net on five starting occasions at the Etihad – against Arsenal (in the FA Cup), Aston Villa, Brentford, Bournemouth and Newcastle United.
