(Video) Alvarez brilliance shining through in Yorkshire

Manchester City fought hard to secure all three points against Sheffield United. However, there were some standout performances, and Alvarez was one to step up.

While the Premier League, European and World Cup Champion did not get on the scoresheet, he did shine.

He caused the home defence a multitude of problems at the back. His intelligent runs and picking up pockets of space, he was a nightmare to defend.

With a lack of recognised free-kick taker, young Alvarez asserted his skill and technique.

Plenty of South American energy to run rings around Sheffield United. He will be one to watch this season if this is just a glimpse of his development.
