Raheem Sterling may have been too tired to start England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Estonia away from home last weekend, but on Sunday he played almost the entire match.
The 19-year-old winger started Liverpool’s Premier League clash against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road and was pretty impressive.
The teenager showed no signs of tiredness as he made attacking runs and forays which often led to confusion among the QPR defenders.
In fact, it was Sterling’s run and cross that led to Steven Caulker’s own goal in the dying seconds of the encounter, which ended in a 3-2 win for Liverpool.
As the stats above show, the promising youngster’s overall performance was encouraging and impressive as well. Sterling was successful in six of the nine dribbles he tried, created three chances for his teammates and had 68 touches.
However, there was still an area or two that the Liverpool youngster fell short in. Sterling had just 77.78% pass accuracy, something that he would like to improve on in his next game.
Nevertheless, Sterling was impressive against QPR despite not being at his best.
