Sterling: Winning Premier League will be even harder next season

Man City attacker Raheem Sterling has insisted that it will be even harder for Manchester City to regain their Premier League title next season.

Pep Guardiola’s side confirmed themselves as English football’s top dogs last season, retaining their Premier League crown as part of an unprecedented domestic treble.

Liverpool did push the Citizens all the way though with City only pipping the Anfield outfit to the title by a single point.

City have amassed a sensational 198 Premier League points over the last two seasons, although England international Sterling reckons it will be an even tougher task next season if Guardiola’s side are to make it three in a row.

The 24-year-old also revealed that a lack of ego’s within the City dressing room is one of the keys to his sides continued success.

‘It’ll be harder than last season,’ Sterling told the Daily Mail.

‘To do this three times in a row is a massive challenge for us.

‘Liverpool, all these big clubs, will try to take titles off us. But there isn’t any player here who thinks they’re at their best. There are no egos in our changing room, no player who thinks he’s Pele or Maradona.’

Man City will begin the defence of their Premier League crown away to West Ham on 10 August.
