The 26-year-old has a goal contribution in four of the five games since then. In a 2-1 win against Paris Saint-Germain, he broke the stalemate against Everton and Watford, set up the opening goal against Aston Villa, and scored the equalizer. He's not only back among the goals, but he's back among the big ones as well. He's back to scoring the clinical tap-ins that made him one of the league's most dangerous finishers, as well as magnificent volleys, but more than that, his confidence has returned.
Sterling: Manchester City forward open to leaving club for move abroad | Football News | Sky Sports"/>
Sterling is once again looking like the player of the year, tearing through opponents at a breakneck pace that generally leaves them in tangles. Leading counter-attacking charges, being dangerous and decisive in the box. This is the Sterling City player they've been missing, and he's returned just in time. City have won all of their games since suffering a slight injury crisis, with Ferran Torres, John Stones, Kyle Walker, Ilkay Gundogan, and Aymeric Laporte (due to suspension) all missing at least one game.
With those victories, the Blues have jumped ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League championship battle and qualified ahead of PSG in their Champions League group. It's been a crucial period of the season, with some potentially difficult matchups that the team has expertly negotiated. Sterling's rediscovery of form at club level has been crucial in this. With the return of Grealish, Foden, and De Bruyne, Guardiola's attacking options are about complete. It'll be intriguing to see how he lines up his attack going ahead. However, the manager isn't one to discard a player who is performing well, therefore Sterling is likely to be in the team for a little longer.
If he maintains his current level of play, City will undoubtedly win some trophy in May. What are your thoughts on this matter? Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments section. Please like, share and help News.info20 reach 5 000 followers. Thank you.
