Alvarez shines against Fulham, City clambers top of Premier League

After converting from the spot for his 34th Premier League goal of the season, which equals the record for most goals in a single campaign, Haaland saw Fulham’s Carlos Vinicius equalize with a superb finish just 15 minutes into the game.

Alvarez displayed exceptional individual skill and scored a spectacular goal from 25 yards, beating the otherwise impressive Bernd Leno, and securing the victory for Manchester City in the first half.

It’s worth noting Manchester City’s impressive attacking record. Among players who have started at least 10 games for a Premier League team this season, only Erling Haaland (67%) has scored in a higher percentage of his starts across all competitions than Julián Álvarez, who has scored in 61% of his starts (11 out of 18).

Additionally, City have won eight consecutive Premier League games, which is currently the longest winning streak by a team in the 2022-23 season, surpassing Arsenal’s seven-game winning streak between February and April.
