The 19-year-old was named as man-of-the-match, with the pacey winger helping the Reds to their eighth successive win in the league.

The victory sends Brendan Rodgers side to the top of the table, and Sterling insists that the Merseysiders have earned the right to become league leaders.

"The target was to get the three points again today, and it's a great credit to the boys," he told Sky Sports.

"It's a great feeling, not just for me but for the whole team.

"It's great to be at the top of the league after today's win. It was a great team performance and the boys really deserve to be at the top of the league."

Henderson

With fifteen minutes remaining, Jordan Henderson completed the rout after his free-kick sailed through a crowd of players and into the back of Hugo Lloris' goal.

The former Sunderland remained coy on the Reds' title challenge, but was quick to claim the goal as his own.

He said: "Does it need clearing up? Luis (Suarez) said he didn't touch it so I'm claiming that one. I don't get many.

"We're all dreaming of winning the Premier League one day and we've got a chance but at the same time we've got to take each game as it comes, focus on the next game at West Ham and at the end of the season, see where we are.

That's what we all want. Take each step at a time and you can't look too far into the future."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
