Sterling spearheaded our 5-0 victory over West Ham with a fine performance at the London Stadium.
"He is one [of most dangerous players in Premier League]," the manager said ahead of the visit of Tottenham on Saturday.
"If you look at the top six teams you find top players. We have many, like Raheem Sterling. I haven’t watched the other games but he is performing so well.
"Everybody wants more and he wants more. It was just the first game of Premier League season."
"Everybody deserves to play because the quality of the team is really good," he said.
"We can talk about the line-ups but we have to think about what is best for the team and how to beat our opponent."
