Three Reasons Liverpool’s Sterling is the Prem’s top youngster

While Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge have been hogging the limelight at Liverpool, young Raheem Sterling has actually been one of the stars of the season. The 19-year-old attacker has been pivotal in the Reds’ title push so far, and was once again excellent today against Norwich. While the Premier League is not short of good young players, Sterling may well just be the best out there. Here are three reasons why the Kop idol is the division’s top teen:


Sterling only managed two strikes last season, but he has equalled that tally in his last two games. Today he added long-rage shooting to his repertoire at Carrow Road.


Sterling doesn’t just bring goals, his fine pass for Suarez was his fourth direct assist of the season. Not bad for a kid.


Pure speed is so important in the modern game, and Sterling has it in abundance.
