Guardiola: Raheem Sterling is no longer 'scared'

Guardiola rejects Neville's nod to City's tactical fouls

Despite thrashing Southampton 6-1 yesterday, it will come as a shock who Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has named as the best corner taker in the league.

While they conceded a goal to a first-half penalty, they would go on to score three more goals, two from Raheem Sterling before Leroy Sane added a sixth in injury time.

But they are just scraps of consolations, because City had already won the game and gone into cruise control by then, and besides they still shipped more goals.

City restored their three-goal advantage before the interval, however, thanks to Sterling's simple finish past McCarthy after Aguero kept the ball in play and squared it to his teammate, though the Englishman required a couple of bites of the cherry after miscuing his initial shot. In this kind of team, to stay they have to improve that.

However, Sterling would make it 4-1 for the hosts just before the break.

What does it mean? That in itself is impressive.

"I have the feeling he is now enjoying scoring goals and making assists". The England worldwide was absolutely everywhere, no wonder he is reportedly in line for a new five-year contract.

Manchester City got straight down to business again following their thrashing of Southampton on Sunday.

- Southampton are winless in nine games at the Etihad Stadium (D1 L8) since winning their very first game there in April 2004. His goal takes him behind Wayner ROONEY of Manchester United and Thierry HENRY of Arsenal for most goals for a single Premier League team.

Sterling scored twice yesterday to take his tally for the season to six and Guardiola believes his confidence in front of goal is a world away from where it was in his first season under the Spaniard.

While City celebrated their big win, it was a double celebration for their striker Aguero who achieved a milestone; reaching 150 Premier League goals on Sunday.

- Sterling scored his 50th goal in all competitions for the club in what was his 153rd game and 126th start.
