Manchester City secured a nervy 2-1 win against Aston Villa this week, and the fixture saw Raheem Sterling reach a stunning Premier League milestone.

As per City Xtra, the England international has now reached 150 goal involvements in the Premier League, with the winger just two goals off the elusive 100 Club in the English top-flight.

Given Sterling’s age, it is quite a remarkable feat from the 26-year-old. And it was overall a night to remember for the attacker, with Pep Guardiola lauding the forward for his display against Villa.

The City boss told the club’s official website: “Today I would like to praise Raheem. He played the best game since a long time ago. Hopefully, he can continue this way as he was exceptional.”
