Manchester City reclaimed the top spot from Liverpool after they hammered Chelsea 6-0 at the Etihad stadium
Sergio Aguero claimed the match ball for his second hattrick in a span of 8 days. Raheem Sterling scored 2 and Ilkay Gundogan scored once to mark Chelsea’s heaviest defeat in over 25 years. Man City now have 65 points from 27 games and are ahead of Liverpool on goal difference, who have one extra game in hand. Tottenham Hotspur are 5 points behind those two on 60.
Raheem Sterling has been in great form this season. The 24 year old has scored 14 goals in 33 appearances this season, 12 of which have come in the Premier league. Sterling has also set up another 15 goals for his teammates across all competitions and is second in the Premier league in terms of goals assisted. Overall, he has been directly involved in 29 goals in 33 appearances, which is just terrific. Raheem Sterling has taken his game to a different level under Pep Guardiola and has become one of the first names on Guardiola’s team sheet. Former England and Chelsea star Joe Cole feels that Raheem Sterling has the potential to become a Premier league great,
There is no doubt that Sterling has improved tremendously under Guardiola. He just needs to keep doing what he is doing right now and greatness will follow.
