Manchester City and Southampton: Raheem Sterling wants the fans to say the name of the season after two goals



Raheem Sterling hopes to give his Manchester City supporters much more reason to say his name after playing in the knockout of Southampton on Sunday.

England, two goals scored, the champions Iihaya Stadium with a 6-1 victory in the top of the Premier League back to the top, the third has risen further, keeping the bright final shape.

He screamed in the crowd's performance and lost his praise at the age of 23.

In I love it when I sing, I'm at the top of the league, Sterling said Sterling. "I have to try to make them sing.

"I always enjoy playing in Etihad. It's an amazing stadium to come here and see my family and everyone."

Sterling's comments can be seen as a sign of encouragement from the city's point of view, which is very close to accepting a new contract with the club.

Former Liverpool player's current agreement ends at the end of next season, but after last month's months of negotiations, there were reports that they had verbally decided on a new agreement.

In the days ahead, it's seen as approved, but City and Sterling are definitely heading for a big week.

Sterling said, "They will be tough games." “It's a great week to start with Shakhtar. This is the most important game. We have to try to win this, and then we have to get into your derby. Bunu

The city was widespread against the Saints and they all clung to the opening of the game in 18 minutes. Wesley Hoedt went back to his own net before Sergio Aguero broke into the home of the 150th Premier League team and David Silva took third place. Sterling hit both sides of the break and then crossed a line-trick chance at Leroy Sane's sixth finish.

Sterling said, “Today was a great team performance. The children started very well, and not just the ball, let's be without the ball, we shouldn't get Liverpool's score, and at times we thought we were bright.

"The most difficult thing in football is to score a goal, and we did it. We were ruthless and we got the chance.

"You can't say they don't defend well – you have to put the ball behind the net. That's the most important thing.

Southampton's only goal of consolation was that Danny Ings' penalties were the first to be shot in six games, ending their drought. Nevertheless, it was a one-sided competition and left Saints without winning at seven.

Midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg told the club's website: "We feel terrible. I can only thank you again and again, I'm sorry for the supporters and I apologize for the Southampton Football Club.

"It's hard to express the game with words. You get emotional, you get angry, you're disappointed – you need to turn around and use it as a fire and use it as fuel to go forward and win everything for next Saturday."

"We take responsibility for what we do, we take it to the chin and grow with it."
