Sterling delighted to help the team


    Raheem Sterling spoke of his delight at helping Liverpool claim another crucial three points, after another man of the match performance for the Reds.

    The 19-year-old returned to the starting line up having only started one of the last four games, and put in a fantastic display as the Reds thrashed Tottenham 4-0 to go top of the Premier League.

    Sterling tormented Danny Rose all afternoon as a part of a fluid front three, and afterwards was keen to praise his teammates for all the hard work put in on the training ground and over the course of the 90 minutes.

    “The most important thing is the way we’re working for each other. We’re not just running headlessly, we’re working as a unit and really perfecting that,” the England international explained.

    “We’re putting teams on the back foot and then pressing really hard to counter-attack them. The boys are working really hard, day in and day out in training – you can see it paying off on the pitch.

    “With Luis and Dan scoring the goals up front, there’s a really good mixture in the team. The appetite of the players and the attitude as well; we’re really working for each other and we know the dream at the end of it.

    “It’s a credit to the boys today; they really worked hard for each other. Everyone was pressing and working their socks off. I’m just really grateful to have been part of that team, because it’s a credit to the lads – they were great.

    “It’s really good; as long as I’m contributing to the team and helping the team, I’m really happy; if that’s being on the bench or playing, as long as I’m contributing.

    “It’s a great team performance and I’m really happy to be in this team that’s doing really well.”
