    He is so hard to contain, one of the best players in the league.

    Sterling now needs to be spoken of as being WC and one of TBITW

    I thought he wasn't great today but he's become so decisive and dangerous inside the box. A poison to play against.

    I think he’s better than Kane, in all honesty. He’s a brilliant player, now Liverpool have got their act together they must be kicking themselves they let such a quality player go.

    You say 'let him go' like they had much of a choice. They offered him a couple of contracts, he refused and then threw a wobbly. It's not like they didn't want to keep him.

    Don't worry. Sterling kinda got a phobia against De Gea that makes him tries unnecessary stuffs in front of our goal everytime he sees De Gea. :D

    He's a very talented player and his goal-scoring over the last two seasons has been great. 18 and 17 league goals in the last two years with 3 already for this season. We would kill for a player like this in our squad right now. He just always seems to score.
    As much as a pain it is that he plays for City, it's fantastic for the national team that we have a player of this quality. We just need to translate his club form over into the England team.

    I know Liverpool have an excellent alternative themselves in Mane but when you consider the stick we got for letting KDB slip through the net, they are getting it remarkably easy in the media.

    Could be one of our most important players in that tournament. Exciting time to be an England fan!

    At the moment? He most definitely is.

    Kane didn't have a particularly great season last time around. Outscored by Mane, Salah, Sterling, Aubameyang, Aguero and Vardy. Poch constantly rushing him back from injuries didn't help him either. This season though, I reckon Kane will be back to his best and win the golden boot. Should be interesting to revisit this thread in that scenario.

    Lethal in the box, Excellent technique and workrate and his contributions have been pivotal in City being back 2 back champions in what I think is the strongest league in the world. For me world class doesn't stop with Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar. There are a good 20-30 players in the world currently who can be called that imo.

    His 3rd hat-trick in 2019, one for England and two for City. Good player.

    Certainly best Englishman and arguably the best player in the league at the moment.

    Unstoppable.

    Not really. KDB was deemed not up to standard by jose. City was a step up for sterling. Different transfers.

    Its like saying liverpool shouldn't have sold suarez. It was the player that wanted the move.

    His head is nowhere near as big as Harry Maguire's head. So no.

    Ok, a different (more suitable now) question than the thread title...

    Is Sterling the best English player since the emergence of Rooney?

    Slight tangent, which English player do you most wish was a Man Utd player currently?

    Sterling forced his move to City though. There's no way we 'let him slip through the net'.

    Anyone who doubts this has some kind of agenda against him. There’s no doubt.

    He's got a lot of stick from the media and a lot is unwarranted but no doubt about it hes the best english player there is right now. I give him a lot of respect for improving his game over the last 18 months hes been brilliant.

    Hopefully we get Sancho next season and he can challenge him.

    He's certainly surpassed Kane now though to establish himself as the best.

    As everyone is asking slightly different questions, which England player do you think will thrive regardless of the system?

    Kane seems to need to be a solo striker, and I have question marks about Sterling outside of City's set up.
