Man City boss Pep Guardiola reckons Raheem Sterling should now be considered amongst the Premier League’s most dangerous attacking players.
24-year-old England international Sterling was often criticised for his lack of end product but has improved massively over the last couple of season, netting 35 times and providing 21 assists during Man City’s two top-flight title triumphs.
Sterling has begun this season in electric form, following up a goal in the Community Shield against Liverpool, with a hat trick in the reigning champions Premier League opener against West Ham last weekend.
Speaking ahead of his sides clash with Spurs at the Etihad this evening Guardiola revealed that he now feels Sterling deserves to be spoken about in the same breath as the Premier League’s very best.
“There are many [dangerous players], and he is one of them,” Guardiola told his pre-match press conference.
“Look at the top six teams and you will find many players. The Premier League is incredible.
“He’s playing so well from the beginning, being clinical, but we want more. Everybody wants more and he wants more. It (West Ham) was just the first game of the Premier League season.”
