Julian Alvarez

A small price to pay for a win

Julian Alvarez appeared to lose a tooth in Manchester City’s win against Bournemouth.

The Premier League champions followed up their derby day win against Manchester United last weekend with a 6-1 thrashing of the lowly top flight side.

Jeremy Doku was the standout, scoring one and grabbing four assists while Bernardo Silva netted a brace. Manuel Akanji, Phil Foden and Nathan Ake also got in the act.

During the celebrations for Man City’s celebrations, Alvarez ran over to join in with his teammates only for Silva to point out to the forward he was missing a tooth.

Alvarez looked visibly shocked but it didn’t stop him from carrying on.

As for the whereabouts of the tooth, that still remains a mystery.

City’s win propels them to the top of the league – although they will drop to second if Arsenal beat Newcastle – and caps off an incredible few days for the Citizens.

Pep Guardiola’s side have scored 12 goals in their last three games. Bournemouth remain just outside of the relegation zone in 17th.
