Manchester City's Pep Guardiola: Raheem Sterling can get even better

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola says in-form Raheem Sterling is no longer a "scared player" while the England star explained why he opted to set Leroy Sane up for a goal despite being on a hattrick.

The Premier League champions are in rude health right now, having thrashed Southampton 6-1 on Sunday afternoon. That's an average of three goals per league game and if they continue at that rate they will end the season having scored 114 league goals, eight more than they managed previous year, in what was a record goalscoring season for the Premier League.

The forward scored on what was also his 217th league appearance for City, who he joined from Atletico Madrid in 2011. "We spoke about that in training and said try to score goals".

Aguero has achieved a number of goalscoring highs for City in the a year ago, becoming the club's all-time top goalscorer against Napoli in November 2017.

The Premier League title race this season may be one of the most keenly contested in recent times as teams continue to breathe down each other's neck for the top position. He is tied along with Eden HAZARD of Chelsea and Pierre-Emerick AUBAMEYANG of Arsenal.

It was proving a nightmare return for Southampton manager Mark Hughes, who was in charge at City during 2008-09, as his side conceded a third when Sterling supplied a cross and David Silva lashed the ball home.

"I thought it was a great team performance", Sterling said.

They were already on the ropes when Wesley Hoedt put the ball into his net for City's opening goal and for much of the first...

And it will now be seven Premier League games without a win following their visit to the Etihad.

"It makes us so hungry to win the game and to score a lot of goals".

Southampton, without a victory in six league games, pulled a goal back in the 29th minute when Danny Ings was brought down in the box and picked himself up to stroke the penalty past goalkeeper Ederson.

"That guy is always looking out for me".
