In doing so, Lewis became City’s youngest goalscorer in the Champions League at the age of 17 years and 347 days.

He also became the youngest player to score on his first Champions League start, previously breaking Karim Benzema’s record when he was at Lyon.

Lewis, who has been with City since he was eight, also emulated Jude Bellingham in becoming the second England player to score in the Champions League before his 18th birthday.

Assist provider Alvarez then netted his own as he rounded Sevilla keeper Bono and fired in after collecting a sublime pass from Kevin De Bruyne.

Riyad Mahrez then sealed the 3-1 win thanks to good work from Alvarez.

Earlier, the LaLiga side took a surprise lead as Rafa Mir deftly headed in a floating corner from the right.

Lewis was then substituted in the 85th minute and he waved to the City faithful who cheered him on off the pitch on a night the starlet will never, ever forget.
