Guardiola Praises Sterling After 100th Premier League Goal

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has showered encomiums on Raheem Sterling for stepping up to play the match-winning penalty against Wolves on Saturday.

Sterling scored his 100th Premier League goal from the spot to hand Man City a 1-0 win over Wolves.

“Our best taker by far is Riyad Mahrez. He has shown under pressure the quality he has but wasn’t on the pitch,” Guardiola told reporters. “Ilkay Gundogan is another, but he’s struggling with his back and hasn’t performed well in the last two games.

“In that moment they chose… Bernardo Silva is a good taker and Rodri could do it, but Raheem showed the personality to take it and score a goal and these are the values I appreciate.”

“Raheem has scored goals lately and is so committed and aggressive… he has been incredibly important over the years. But players have to perform every single game.”

Manchester City are just one point above Liverpool on top of the Premier League log.
