EPL: He’s almost undroppable – Pep Guardiola hails De Bruyne’s replacement

Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has hailed Bruyne’s replacement in his XI following the player’s display against West Ham on Saturday




Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has hailed Julian Alvarez, saying the Argentine is ‘almost undroppable’. 

This was after Manchester City came from behind to beat West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.

James Ward-Prowse put the home side in front in the first half.

But the Citizens’ summer signing, Jeremy Doku equalised with his first goal for the club since his £55.5 million move from Rennes.

Alvarez assisted Bernardo Silva for the second goal before Erling Haaland struck to secure a 3-1 win.

And after the game, the Spaniard hailed Alvarez for stepping up in Kevin de Bruyne’s absence.

“He’s learning a lot how to move in the pockets, he’s a threat with goals and assists, and a work ethic. We are delighted that the club brought him last year,” he said after the game.

“[Ilkay] Gundo left and unfortunately with the injury to Kevin [De Bruyne] he has his chance and he is using it. Now he is almost undroppable.”
