Pep Guardiola Raheem Sterling

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was full of praise for Raheem Sterling after he scored a hat-trick against Norwich. He also hopes for more from Riyadh Mahrez as he criticized him for his work off the ball. The Algerian had an eight-game goal-scoring streak ended against Norwich. He is the top scorer with 16 goals for the club in all competitions.

“He is an exceptional player but I want more,” Pep Guardiola said about Raheem Sterling. “The second one was there and you realize after the goal how confident he is, aggressive. In the last game, he made an excellent action against Brentford to win the penalty. He is a guy that always creates something.”

“We did a really good performance overall,” he added. “We arrived here against a team in their best moment of the season who are confident that’s why it’s an important result. How we behaved today is Manchester City. The team is alive, that is the most important thing. We know the rival we have. Liverpool isn’t going to drop many points due to the quality and depth of their squad. It’s the best squad they’ve had in the last decade. And we will have to win a lot of games. This is an important step – we did our job.”

“A tough night, I’m frustrated with the manner of the goals we conceded,” Norwich boss Dean Smith said. “We can’t legislate for mistakes, they happen. We stayed in the game and had a couple of chances ourselves. The moments were few and far between against a team that controls possession really well but the second goal probably killed the game for me, it flattened the atmosphere.”
