Raheem Sterling: Liverpool youngster backed to impress once again

Raheem Sterling: Liverpool youngster backed to impress once again

The 18-year-old made his debut for the Reds last August and his impressive form led to a call-up into the England squad.

And Sterling's buoyancy in pre-season, in which he has scored in the team's two friendlies and produced an excellent display against an Indonesia XI, has been noted by Rodgers.

"I thought he was outstanding the other night," Rodgers said.

"He's come back refreshed. He did work over the course of pre-season and was back and forward from his holidays into Melwood preparing himself well.

"He looks so fit, he looks sharp, he looks better than he was last summer when I came in and I think he'll play a big part for us again this season.

"At 18 years of age, he has so much potential. If we nurture that well and he can retain his focus and mentality, he can be a big talent for Liverpool.

"I've been pleased with what I've seen from him so far."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
