The English international was an expensive purchase at 8.5m in the EFL transfer market, but he managed a rather impressive point total of 117. He was the best performing player in the City squad ahead of star names such as Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne and Ederson.
Sterling’s performances for City last season suggest that he has become more mature in front of the goal, and he is capable of producing match-defining moments. He was rather ineffective for England in Brazil 2014, but four years later, he has everything in his locker to make a real impact for his national side on the football’s biggest stage.
