Asked which player he is most similar to in terms of style, Mebude replied:

Sterling, who like Mebude was born in London, helped Manchester City to the English title last season - collecting FWA Footballer of the Year and PFA Young Player of the Year awards in the process.

And the England international has already scored six goals in five games for City this campaign.
