Manchester City star Raheem Sterling has said that he felt more title pressure at Liverpool than he is feeling at Manchester City.
Sterling played a key role in Liverpool’s run to 2nd place in the Premier League in the 2013-14 season. However, Liverpool lost the Premier League to Manchester City that season.
Manchester City and Liverpool have an intense competition in the Premier League title race this season. Sterling has said that he felt more title pressure at Anfield.
The 24-year old said, “When I was there I did feel a lot more pressure than when I’m here, with matchdays and the fans. I think that they get to us a little bit. We were in control and we had the opportunity to see it through but we didn’t do that. Here we’re completely focused on each game and trying to win each game as it comes. It’s a complete different scenario from last year – last year we were a bit more comfortable towards this point of the season.
They’ve been playing some good football at times but we’re confident in ourselves and we’ve got the belief. This year it’s a complete turnaround and we’re the ones who are chasing. It’s really close at the moment but I have full belief in the squad.
We’re confident in ourselves and we’ve got the belief and the attitude and the work-rate that we need. We’re completely focused on the job and not who we’re up against but who we’ve got next – that’s all that matters.”
Manchester City are currently second in the Premier League table, one point behind Liverpool. They next travel to Dean Court to play Bournemouth tomorrow.
