Raheem Sterling was once again on the scoresheet for Manchester City on Saturday, as the Citizens beat Aston Villa 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium (via BBC Sport).
It was a result which saw City move three points behind leaders Liverpool at the time of writing (BBC Sport), and means they have now won back-to-back league matches following their shock defeat against Wolves (Transfermarkt).
The England international has been in superb form this season, and he has now netted 13 goals and provided five assists in just 14 appearances in all competitions (via Transfermarkt).
He has picked up from where he left off last season after scoring 25 goals and racking up 18 assists in the 2018/19 campaign (Transfermarkt).
Sterling was outstanding against Villa, and the stats back that up. Indeed, as well as scoring he also played three key passes, made one tackle and one clearance in the 75 minutes he played, finishing with a WhoScored rating of 7.75.
Naturally, City supporters were delighted with the winger’s performance, and several of them took to Twitter to heap praise on him after the game. Here is what some had to say…
Well played Raheem💙💙
