Have to agree with you about Sterling. Im really losing patience with him. Dead ends, loses the ball so often and consistently missing good scoring chances.Immediate post match thoughts are broadly thats more like it. Very decent performance despite being against a team that coming to the Etihad is their bogey on steroids.
Some good finishing at last and all five being clinically put away. Wont be a popular view of course but we looked so much better going forward without Sterling running into dead ends until he loses the ball or and momentum, that did not seem to happen today.
Thought Kev looked better, another promising showing by Torres with a good clinical finish thrown in. Mahrez hat trick speaks for itself and a very big performance by John Stones. Foden looked sharp when he came on and his cross for Mahrez third goal was absolute class and again something that would be beyond Sterling who often would be receiving that kind of ball in that position.
Strange to say after scoring five and having two ruled out, but for me we are that one top class striker away from being in with a good chance of winning the league again.
