EPL: Sterling strikes twice as City hit Saints for six

  • Gabriel Jesus has only scored against Huddersfield and Oxford this season

The Argentine is the eighth-top scorer in Premier League history, having hit the 20-goal mark in five of his seven full seasons with Manchester City.

On this form it was easy to see why City have worked so hard to tie down the 23-year-old Sterling to new terms.

"He was not looking [to score even though] the keeper was there".

"We spoke about that and said "try to score goals".

City are scoring at a marginally faster rate than they did while racking up a record 106 goals last season, and they made a devastating start at the Etihad that finished the game as a contest within 18 minutes of kick-off.

Aguero has achieved a number of goalscoring highs for City in the a year ago, becoming the club's all-time top goalscorer against Napoli in November 2017.

But Guardiola said it was too early to claim that Sterling is one of the best players in the world as he still needs to increase his consistency.


Sergio Aguero made it 2-0 in the 12th minute to double his side's lead and made him the third player after Thierry Henrry and and Wayne Rooney to have scored 150 Premier League goals for a single club.

"It was an incredible performance with and without the ball but still with the young guys like him and Leroy (Sane) I would like to feel they can still improve". "If he has his mind to become a better player, and think it is not enough what I am like as a football player, he can reach whatever he wants".

"You need to be more aggressive than we were able to show".

Sterling unselfishly squared for Sane in second-half stoppage time to allow the Germany worldwide to score City's sixth, and he said the winger often does the same in return.

Liverpool held Manchester City to a goalless draw at Anfield last month, although Pep Guardiola's men spurned a glorious opportunity to snatch all three points with five minutes remaining of the game, but Riyad Mahrez skied his penalty over. We were not stable behind.

"Opening period is always important in any game and we didn't really acquit ourselves well".

"We can improve and that is good".
