I learn from Suarez & Sturridge while Gerrard keeps me grounded - Liverpool's Sterling

Liverpool youngster Raheem Sterling has revealed that he banks on the experience and skill of his teammates to help improve his game.

The 19-year old winger is emerging as an integral part of the Reds squad as they chase a first league title since 1990 and says his form has a lot to do with what he learns from the team's star strikers as well as the Anfield club's influential captain.

"I have been learning off the likes of Suarez and Sturridge and trying to bring it into match days," he said.

"The high-end players like Steven Gerrard always make sure your feet stay firmly on the floor but me as a person I don't think that will be a problem.

"I am just glad to be playing and long may it continue. There will never be a time when my feet are off the floor.

"I try to go home and switch off from football and think about the next game closer to it.

"I try to watch my performances probably two days after, when everything has settled down, and I go over my clips when I am more calm and ready to focus."
