Why Raheem Sterling is loving life at Manchester City

Raheem Sterling fired Manchester City one step closer to the Premier League title with a sensational hat-trick against Watford.

It took Sterling just 13 second half minutes to score his three goals and break down the stubborn Hornets at the Etihad.

The winger has moved onto 46 Premier League goals in Manchester City colours and is on course for the most prolific season of his career.

At just 24, Sterling is already playing in his eighth Premier League season having made his debut for Liverpool in 2012.

After four seasons at Liverpool, the England international made the switch to Manchester City in the summer of 2015.

Following a season of transition, Sterling made huge strides after the appointment of Pep Guardiola in 2016.

In his first year under Guardiola’s guidance, Sterling scored seven goals and laid on 10 assists to help secure Champions League football for the Citizens.

The attacker became a key cog of the 2017-18 City side that blitzed all before them, scoring a number of key goals, including a late winner at Huddersfield.

Sterling continued to shine, putting in a showstopping performance in a 3-1 victory over Spurs as City reached 100 points - the first team to do so in Premier League history.

After playing his part in England’s run to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russia, Sterling has been ever reliable for City this campaign.

Sterling is already on 15 Premier League goals for the season, with two of those coming in a 6-0 rout of Chelsea on February 10.

The attacker also helped City collect their first piece of silverware this season, slotting home the winning penalty kick in the Carabao Cup final shootout against Chelsea.

Not only does he have 15 goals, but Sterling has also provided 11 assists in just 27 games.

At the current rate, Sterling’s performances have more than merited a nomination for this season’s PFA Players’ Player of the Year.
