Sterling: “It's not something that I'm fussed about really. It has to be natural, you can't force it.

“I’m not going to start shouting on the pitch now Vinny’s gone. Your team-mates have to see you in that light.

“The manager and us as players will make the right choice. We’ve got a lot of good candidates here.

David has been here for God knows how long - he’s been in the country longer than I have! There’s Kevin [De Bruyne], Dinho [Fernandinho], we have a lot of players who can fill it.”
