Raheem Sterling: Keen to improve at Liverpool

Sterling, who has only recently turned 18, has played in 20 of his side's 21 top-flight matches and has signed a new five-year contract to keep him at Anfield.

He also scored his second Premier League goal in Liverpool's 3-0 defeat of Sunderland on Wednesday but he is determined to concentrate on his football and grow as a player at Anfield.

"I try not to take in what people are saying and just listen to the manager and the people who have influenced me to play football," he said.

"Hopefully I can just do well and not let it take up too much of my head, just play my normal game and goals and assists will come.

"I don't really listen to anyone apart from people at the football club.

"It is a big step for any 17-18-year-old to come and play in the Premier League with players like Steven Gerrard and the expectation is going to be high week in, week out.

"But as a young player you just have to keep playing."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
