Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola: “It’s a brilliant first goal. The second one was there and you realize after the goal how confident he [Sterling] is, how aggressive. In the last game, he made an excellent action against Brentford to win the penalty. He is a guy that always creates something. He [Riyad Mahrez] is an exceptional player but I want more. He’s clever, he’s a goalscorer. But sometimes I want more. Sometimes he’s a little bit weak in the duels. We’ve known each other a long time and he knows the intentions we say to him is in a positive way.”
