Raheem Sterling insisted that his goalscoring form won’t “mean anything” if Manchester City don’t win the FA Cup and Champions League.
Sterling scored a hat-trick in City’s 5-0 win over Brighton to reach 27 goals in all competitions this season. That makes 2019-20 the most prolific season in the 25-year-old’s career so far.
But the winger feels his team have had a problem with finishing chances this season in comparison to the previous year – and he insists the team’s results come before personal achievements.
Sterling told Sky Sports: “We were disappointed last week to lose at Southampton. We created chances but couldn’t finish.
“It’s great to bounce back with an away win.
“The problem we’ve had this season is creating a lot of chances and last season we finished them. This season we’ve not had the luck but we’re growing and doing things right.
“The most important thing for me is to add goals to the team. We want to win the FA Cup and the Champions League otherwise these goals don’t mean anything.
“I need to make sure they count.”
