Sterling rose through the ranks of Liverpool’s academy team and impressed straight away. Just two years after joining Liverpool, he made his senior debut for the club aged 17 years and 107 days. He thus became the third-youngest player to play for the club in the process. Sterling made two more appearances over the remainder of the campaign.

He made his European debut for the club in the following season, coming on as a substitute in a UEFA Europa League qualifying match against Gomel. In the next week, he scored his first goal for the senior team in a friendly against Bayer Leverkusen.

On 23 August 2012, he started his first match for Liverpool in a Europa League qualifying match away to Hearts. Three days later, he made his first start in the league in a 2–2 draw at Anfield to Manchester City.

On 20 October, Sterling scored his first senior competitive goal for Liverpool in a 1–0 league win against Reading. He thus became the second-youngest player ever to score in a competitive fixture for Liverpool, behind only Michael Owen.

In the 2013-14 season, Raheem played an essential role in Liverpool’s second-place finish in the league. As a result, he was named as one of the six players on the shortlist for the PFA Young Player of the Year award. At the end of the season, he was named Liverpool’s Young Player of the Year.

For the second consecutive year, he was named as one of the six players on the shortlist for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

Sterling’s departure from Liverpool, however, was marred with controversy. Liverpool reportedly offered Sterling £100,000-a-week, but the offer got rejected by the player’s representative, Aidy Ward. Sterling was on £35,000-a-week at the time.

Ahead of the 2015-16 season, he secured a move to domestic rivals, Manchester City for an initial £44 million, with a further potential £5 million in add-ons.

However, Sterling failed to live up to expectations. In fact, many even called him the worst signing of the season. But since then, he has flourished under Pep Guardiola and is one of the best players in the Premier League. In the 2017-18 season, he scored seven goals to help City win the Premier League.

FIFA World Cup 2018: Raheem Sterling will Light up the World Cup – Kevin de Bruyne

Belgium star Kevin de Bruyne has backed his Manchester City teammate and England star, Raheem Sterling to shine in the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2018.

The City teammates will be up against each other when England and Belgium lock horns on June 28 in a battle that can very much define the standings in Group G.

Not long ago, they combined to lead City to record-breaking title success in the Premier League in 2017-18.

And while only time will tell whether who performs well in the showpiece event, de Bruyne is confident of a good show from the England attacker.

Sterling had a good season in the Premier League where he scored 18 goals and provided 11 assists.

“He’s a special player. This season he was playing at such a high level, and he’s only going to get better,” he told The Mirror.

De Bruyne further said Sterling would be able to move on from the recent criticism. The 23-year old had faced widespread criticism after getting a tattoo of a gun, depicting an assault rifle. He had later gone on to defend his tattoo.

“He’s a winner – any criticism he has faced in the last few weeks I know he will just ignore. At Manchester City, he’s so focused on success, and I know he would have the same attitude with England,” De Bruyne said.

“He scored many goals last season, but he scored important goals too – goals that won games in the last minute – and that takes a special type of player.

“On the big occasions he has the confidence – that is why I think he will light up the World Cup,” he added.

De Bruyne further added Belgium were full of belief ahead of the FIFA World Cup 2014.

“We know this Belgium squad is special and, of course, we’re desperate to win a trophy,” he said. “We have the belief, but there can only be one nation that wins the World Cup – but we’re ready for the fight.”

Belgium have warmed up for the event in style. In their last two warm-up games, they thrashed Egypt 3-0 before dismantling Costa Rica 4-1.

Roberto Martinez’s men will open their campaign against Panama next Monday.

Sportzwiki Yearly Review 2016: Top 5 English Players in Premier League

English Premier League is the most watched league across the world as the league has attracted fans from all the corners on the planet. The league often has the best quality on display and almost every English player who plays football often plays in England alone.

With such competition there is plenty of English talent that comes up every year. Here we look at the five best English players in 2016 in Premier League.

#5. Marcus Rashford

The young striker has broke into Manchester United senior squad this February and has been nothing short of sensational since his debut. He is rated as one of the best young players in the world and have looked at ease playing against big defenders in the league.

Still in the first year of his career, Rashford has achieved more than most other players at such tinder age and could only grow better under new manager Jose Mourinho.

#4. Dele Alli

Sportzwiki Yearly Review 2016: Top 5 English Players in Premier League 9

The 20-year old has been the find of the year as he is growing tremendously under Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham. He has been arguably the best English attacking midfielder this year as he played a major role in helping Spurs finish third last season.

His impressive outings has also earned him his first international cap last season and Alli remains a key player for Spurs and England in the upcoming years.

#3. Raheem Sterling

Sportzwiki Yearly Review 2016: Top 5 English Players in Premier League 10

The Ex-Liverpool winger is enjoying his spell at Manchester City under new manager Pep Guardiola. Having made a controversial move to City from Liverpool in 2014, Sterling had a bad start to his City career as he had taken a lot of stick last season.

But under Guardiola, he has emerged as an exciting talent as he impressed in attack and adapted well to the Pep’s philosophy so far. He is arguably the best English player this season and hopes to continue his fine form in 2017 as well.

#2. Harry Kane

It will be good to finish above Arsenal: Harry Kane

The English striker is undoubtedly one of the best young strikers in the world as he netted an impressive 21 goals in the Premier League this year.

He has grown from strength to strength as he is the main man for Tottenham last season as they made a great fight for the title last season. Despite being hampered by injuries, early this season, he remains an important player for Spurs.

#1. Jamie Vardy

Jamie Vardy

The 29-year old along with Riyad Mahrez have created magic in the final third for Leicester city earlier this year to win their maiden Premier League title. He has scored and assisted at will to ensure that the Foxes do the unthinkable.

Having hit peak form last season, Jamie Vardy is yet to find the rhythm this season as Leicester are in the bottom half of the table going into the Boxing Day fixture.

Confirmed: This Arsenal star is Premier League’s fastest player, did any United and Chelsea player made the list?

Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin has been named as the fastest Premier League player on FIFA 17.

The Spanish right-back is known for his incredible pace and he has been handed a 95 rating on the latest EA Sports game.bellerin-fastest

Bellerin is rated as the fourth-fastest player in world football behind Jonathan Biabiany, Mathis Bolly, and Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – who is the fastest player on the game.

Fellow Premier League stars Raheem Sterling and Ahmed Musa also make the list but it is the Spaniard who is crowned as the king of getting from A to B in the Premier League.

Surprisingly, there was no place for fellow Arsenal star Theo Walcott in the world’s top 20, though the England international will probably not be too far behind.

Gareth Bale and former Arsenal star Ryo Miyaichi also make the top 20.

Here’s the full list:

Man United vs Man City Combined XI: Will Rooney make the cut, who misses out??

As if it were even possible, the Manchester derby has taken on yet more significance this season as Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola resume their long rivalry on English soil.

City will make the short trip across to Old Trafford on Saturday lunch-time where the two wealthiest and strongest clubs in the Premier League will go head to head in a titanic battle.

Here’s a look at who would make it into a combined XI ahead of the big kick-off.

1. David de Gea

United appearances: 227

After yet another top class season, David de Gea has broken into the top 10 overall players on the new FIFA game. Only Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer is now considered better.

This derby will also see Claudio Bravo make his City debut.

2. Antonio Valencia

United appearances: 252

Antonio Valencia has finally convinced people that he has what it takes to be a right-back after an incredible start to the new campaign – his form even resulted in a nomination for the Premier League’s August Player of the Month award.

His participation is slightly in doubt, however, with a late scheduled return from international duty with Ecuador.

3. John Stones

City appearances: 4

John Stones didn’t have the best of seasons with Everton last term, but City still saw fit to make the talented England international the most expensive Premier League defender ever over the summer. So far, he’s been proving the doubters wrong.

4. Eric Bailly

United appearances: 4

Eyebrows were raised when United paid £30m for Eric Bailly, previously largely unknown. Mourinho even admitted the Ivorian defender was a raw talent that required polishing before he was ready. And therefore his excellent start in the opening few weeks of 2016/17 has been somewhat unexpected.

5. Luke Shaw

United appearances: 32

Luke Shaw’s career was at risk this time last year when he suffered a horrific double leg break in a Champions League game. Now, nearly a full 12 months on, the United left-back is getting stronger and fitter by the week as he returns to his pre-injury form.manchester-combined-xi

6. Fernandinho

City appearances: 142

There were a number of players Guardiola didn’t consider ideal when he first arrived at the Etihad Stadium – Joe Hart being a prime example. But the new boss took an instant shine to Fernandinho, the team’s midfield engine and beating heart.

7. Paul Pogba

United appearances: 9

Paul Pogba began his second spell at United with a fine performance against Southampton last month. That followed an £89m move from Juventus and barely any training with his new colleagues. The derby is the kind of stage that should be made for the Frenchman.

8. David Silva

City appearances: 265

Even now as one of the older generation of City players, David Silva still remains as important as ever. The Spaniard has won it all, domestically, since moving to England in 2010 and goes into Saturday’s game fresh off the back of an international brace.

9. Kevin De Bruyne

City appearances: 45

City struggled when club record signing Kevin De Bruyne was injured last season and his ability to stay fit will be crucial to any success in 2016/17. The Belgian simply makes things happen, even more so than Silva, and could command a place in any team in the world.

10. Raheem Sterling

City appearances: 51

The Raheem Sterling that has started this season is a totally different player from the one that failed to suitably justify a £49m price tag in his debut campaign with City and then endured a nightmare Euro 2016 with England. Renewed confidence has been the solution.

11. Zlatan Ibrahimovic

United appearances: 4

Cynics thought Zlatan Ibrahimovic would find English football too challenging following his summer move from Paris Saint-Germain. The Swede has so far blown the doubters out of the water with four goals in his first four appearances and a general positive impact.

Highly Cited: Premier League’s top 10 highest paid footballers this season

Paul Pogba is now the highest-paid player in the English Premier League, after his world-record move to Manchester United.

The 23-year-old midfielder, who has signed a five-year deal with the Old Trafford outfit, will earn £290,000 a week.

It is a huge jump from £65,000 a week his agent, Mino Raiola, demanded from the club in 2012, before he left for Juventus. At that time, Sir Alex Ferguson was alarmed by such demands for a young player, who only made seven first-team appearances – all as a substitute.

Pogba will now earn more than United captain, Wayne Rooney and fellow summer arrival, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Manchester dominates the top 10 earners in the EPL, with City having Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure, David Silva and Raheem Sterling. Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil and Eden Hazard of Chelsea also make the list.

Let’s take a quick look at Premier League’s top 10 highest paid footballers at the moment.

Man City’s Sterling credits hard work for improvement

Manchester, Sep 1 (IANS) Raheem Sterling has said hard work is the reason for his improvement as a striker for Manchester City in the English Premier League football this season.

Sterling, 21, scored twice in City’s 3-1 victory over West Ham at the Etihad Stadium to go top of the Premier League over the weekend, reports Cana.

City has now registered three wins from three Premier League matches under new manager Pep Guardiola.

“I just made a promise, something that I said to myself, that when I come back at the start of this season, I am going to work hard and try to be as consistent as I can,” said Sterling on Wednesday.

“It’s something that I will definitely take into every season with me, to remember that sort of stuff and just to move forward from it.”

City were 2-0 up after only 18 minutes, with Sterling drilling home the opener on eight minutes and taking advantage in injury-time with a delicate finish from the angle from David Silva’s pass.

“I’m enjoying my football and I am enjoying winning games, and I am working hard to continue doing that,” said Sterling.

“This is the season you will see me working my hardest, that’s for sure.”

Sterling warns English fans, media against unrealistic expectations

London, March 25 (IANS) Stating that English football has had only one golden generation so far, Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has asked the fans and media not to have unrealistic expectations from the England squad at Euro 2016.

Successive generations of England squads have choked under the pressure of expectations and intense scrutiny from the media and fans with the World Cup winning team of 1966 a notable expectation.

Sterling, who is currently recovering from a groin injury, pointed out that the current England squad has several promising talents, but warned that too much hype may affect their performance at the Euro Cup in France this June.

“We’ve got a lot of young players who are doing well, but we are still developing as a squad, and calling us a golden generation would be wrong. The potential is there, but I don’t see the point of putting extra pressure on players by building them up into something they aren’t,” Sterling was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

“Expectations become unrealistic. And, if they aren’t successful, it is somehow turned into how they have let the country down.”

England boast of several exceptional strikers and mid-fielders, including Leicester City centre-forward Jamie Vardy and Manchester United veteran Wayne Rooney. Sterling however, asserted that the players will have to prove themselves in big tournaments before they can be rightfully branded as the golden generation.

“The golden generation label sounds good. But the only golden generation England have ever had was the team that actually won the World Cup. They were winners,” the 21-year-old said.

Sterling believes that the England players learned some valuable lessons from their campaign at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil where the team finished last in their group and they are determined to do well in France.

“We know we came home from Brazil too early, but we have got players who want to express themselves and play in a positive way. It’s the small details that we have got to get right at the Euros because it’s the little things that usually make a massive difference in games at the highest level,” the former Liverpool star said.

“Now we are going out there to do our best and to get to the next level. Ask any player in the squad what they want to achieve in the Euros and they will tell you we are going there to win it. Everyone should have dreams and we don’t want to go there just to make up the numbers,” he added.

“Our first job is to get out of the group. It won’t be easy, but if we can do that then it becomes knock-out football and then anything becomes possible.”
