Sterling: Manchester City are built to win football matches

Raheem Sterling has called for Manchester City to build on our recent success moving forward into the Premier League’s busy winter period.

The England winger grabbed a fourth goal in his last six matches in City’s 3-1 win at Watford, heading home the game’s opener inside four minutes.

Guardiola’s men registered a Club record 31st win across 2021 in the process, helping to propel us to the top of the Premier League table for the first time this season.

And as the congested Christmas fixture list approaches, Sterling says City’s sole focus needs to be on continuing that fine form.


“All we can do is keep winning matches. That’s what this football club is built to do, we just need to keep doing that,” he reflected.

“It’s a winning team, one that challenges every three days, we’ve been doing that for years now and we’ll keep doing that.

“(We showed) good game management (against Watford), we’re disappointed to concede in the end but overall, I thought we battled really well.

“We had a few chances we could’ve taken to finish it off but a great win in the end.”
