Pep Guardiola backs Raheem Sterling to reach 30-goal mark

INJURY NEWS Stones will miss the game with Tottenham Hotspur

Even after conceding two goals, the Citizens were able to find the net in the injury time.

24-year-old England global Sterling was often criticised for his lack of end product but has improved massively over the last couple of season, netting 35 times and providing 21 assists during Man City's two top-flight title triumphs. So, he can do it, yeah.

Manchester City dominated the bulk of ball possession, and their dominance paid a dividend as Raheem Sterling scored the first goal for the team in the 20th minute of the match, giving City a 1-0 lead.

The latest VAR ruling made the result all the more frustrating for City, which dominated the match and racked up 30 shots to the visitors' three.

As well as clinching a second successive Premier League title, City became the first male English side to win the domestic treble.

"I don't know if fate will bring us together again, but he knows that if he calls me, I'll go", he added. I never spoke with Sergio [Aguero] or Gabriel [Jesus] or Raz, with any of the people up front, about what are their dreams and targets and these kinds of things.


Son Heung-min was Tottenham's star then, scoring three of his side's four goals, but Spurs' lack of depth slowly caught up with them in the final few months of the season.

"About Tottenham, I think my colleague can speak better about his team", Guardiola said. But goals are a effect of the way we play - their mood, how they are playing, injuries. "But if he does what he has to do for him and the team, it's enough". "I said many times that Pochettino is doing an extraordinary job", said Guardiola.

"They are a strong team, a good team".

It was not hard to detect a slightly terse tone to the praise of a man who took umbridge at Guardiola labelling Tottenham as "the Harry Kane" team in 2017.

"I like being a manager, and I will only stop being it if Pep thinks I can be useful in any way".

"My opinion about him is high standards. He's a top, top, top, top manager".
