Ederson had to force Julian Alvarez to celebrate with the FA Cup trophy
| Last updated
Manchester City emerged victorious in the first-ever Manchester derby FA Cup final, winning 2-1 in normal time, with Ilkay Gundogan grabbing a brace.
During the post-match celebrations though, it looked like Julian Alvarez was too shy to take the trophy and lift it in front of the fans himself.
The young striker has had a fantastic debut season, scoring three goals and grabbing two assists in five FA Cup games, while scoring 17 goals in all competitions.
The 23-year-old also won the World Cup with Argentina in Qatar, and is en-route to a treble with the Cityzens.
There is no doubt then, that the young attacker has contributed significantly to Manchester City's success and he deserves his moment in the spotlight.
Despite the astonishing season that City number nine Erling Haaland has had and the recognition he receives, Alvarez's lively contributions to the side cannot be overlooked.
Alvarez eventually conjured the courage up to lift the world's oldest football trophy up to the fans, and properly celebrate City's domestic double.
Manchester United are the only team to have won the treble in English football, during their legendary 1998/99 season, which was topped off with two injury-time goals in the Champions League final.
Though there is an acceptance that City's potential treble might not be as dramatic or against-the-odds, there is no question that Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City side have dominated English and European football this season.
Beat Inter Milan next weekend, and they might go down as the most dominant English side in history.
