Sterling close to surpass his figures of last season

Liverpool striker Raheem Sterling has the mentality and natural potential to regularly provide goals and assists in the double figures throughout his career said Liverpool gaffer Brendan Rodgers

The 20-year-old registered the crucial contribution during a 1-0 Boxing Day victory at Burnley, seizing upon a Philippe Coutinho assist to run behind and find the target at Turf Moor.

At Old Trafford the finishing had not been of sufficient standard to beat David De Gea, but his composure was marked this time as he simply removed the goalkeeper altogether.

The Jamaican-born English player is therefore well on the way to surpassing his record of 10 last season. Right now this season his tally of goals is 6 so far in all competitions.

Rodgers expects such numbers to become standard for the forward during the years to come.

“If I look at Raheem, his outcome last year in terms of goals and assists was probably where it’s at -in and around 10 to 15 goals, and creating goals. That’s a very good return for him.”said Liverpool gaffer Rodgers

He added that Sterling is a natural winger and if he gets those figures on a regular basis and assisting goals every season then those are very good number for him.
