In the 2010 season, Gutiérrez marked his first goal for the club in Copa Chile in a 4–0 win against San Pedro de Atacama[2] and scored his first league goal for the club, in a 4–1 win over O’Higgins on 31 July 2010.[3] Gutiérrez then scored his second goal for the club in the last game of the season, in a 5–0 win over Everton.[4] Later in the 2010 season, Gutiérrez won the Chilean championship with Universidad Católica and went to score two times in fifteen appearance.[5]

In the Torneo Apertura, Gutiérrez started well in the tournament and made an impressive display, including scoring important goals against Colo-Colo twice in four encounters on 26 May 2011[6] and 16 October 2011.[7] and Universidad de Chile on 15 May 2011.[8] Later in the 2011 season, Gutiérrez scored ten goals in thirty–eight appearance in all competitions and he became runners-up in the championship with Universidad Católica, losing 4–1 in the final against Universidad de Chile, and won the Chilean Cup.[citation needed] He was also voted "revelation of the season" by readers of the Chilean edition of the El Grafico magazine.[9] His performance attracted interests from La Liga side Málaga, where he could link up his compatriot Manager Manuel Pellegrini. However, Gutiérrez dismissed the move to Málaga.[10]

In the 2012 Apertura, he became the club's top scorer with seven goals, including scoring two braces against Cobreloa[11] and Cobresal.[citation needed]

FC Twente[edit]

In June 2012, Gutiérrez signed for FC Twente of the Eredivisie who paid a fee between U.S. $3.5 and 4 million to Universidad Catolica for 70% of the transfer rights.[12][13][14]

Gutiérrez made his professional debut for the club on 2 August 2012 in the third qualifying round of the Europa League against FK Mlada Boleslav, being substituted on in the 73th minute.[15] A week later on 14 August 2012, Gutiérrez made his league debut for the club, in the opening game of the season, coming on as a substitute in the 84th minutes, in a 4–1 win over Groningen.[16] He scored his first goal for Twente on 30 August 2012 in a Europa League play-off match against Bursaspor in a 4–1 win, helping the Dutch team qualify for the group stage.[17] On 15 September 2012, Gutiérrez scored his first Twente goal, in a 6–2 win over Willem II.[18] During a match against Hannover 96 in the Europa League, Gutiérrez suffered a knee injury and after the match, it was announced that he would be out for two months.[19] After making his return from injury against Feyenoord on 27 January 2013,[20] Gutiérrez scored his second league goal for the club on 28 April 2013, in a 5–2 win over NEC.[21] Gutiérrez then scored two times against Groningen in both legs of the plays–off, which Twente won 4–3 on aggregate.[22][23] Despite this, Gutiérrez finished his first season at Twente, making forty–three appearance and scoring six times in all competitions.

Ahead of the 2015–16 season, Twente faced a major uncertainty when they faced consequences of financial problems and faced cuts along the way. Despite this, Gutiérrez, once again, became a first team regular following his return from injury. Gutiérrez then scored his first goal of the season, in a 2–2 draw against Ajax on 12 September 2015.[37] Following Hakim Ziyech’s departure to Ajax in the January transfer window, Gutiérrez was appointed as the new club captain[38] and appeared as a captain in the first match on 15 January 2016, where he set up one of the goals, in a 4–0 win over Heracles Almelo.[39] Gutiérrez scored his second goal of the season on 31 January 2016, in a 3–1 win over Utrecht.[40] However, as the season progressed, Gutiérrez missed four matches between 10 April 2016 and 1 May 2016, due to his wife giving birth[41] and a knee injury, which expected him to be out for the rest of the season.[42] However, on the last game of the season, he made his return on the last game of the season, in a 2–2 against Vitesse.[43] Gutiérrez finished the 2015–16 season, making twenty–nine appearance and scoring two times.
