I am keenly aware of Raheem Sterling's flaws, I've watched the lad play hundreds of times. He has probably the most unbalanced skillset of any elite player I can think of.
But his movement is better than anyone at the club, arguably as good as anyone in the world. We don't have anyone else who can do what he does, which is why Pep felt compelled to play him in the Champions League Final.
He is frustrating, inconsistent, honestly genuinely bewildering at times. And on current form in big games, he doesn't deserve to be starting. But I do think he's worth persevering with and I really hope he comes good, because when he's on song he gives us something that no one else does
This. I’m not seeing these missed chances from the others…. Why? Because they aren’t capable of making them. When he is benched We don’t see these chances fluffed.
I would rather see missed chances than no chances… eventually he will start putting some away again. It’s called confidence.
