Sterling scored one and also won a penalty, converted by Sergio Aguero, to help City to a 3-1 win.
“It's an ever-growing relationship with the manager - not just with me but with everyone in the whole squad" said Sterling.
“He keeps giving us confidence and his motivation talks are really good. Everyone's working really hard to try and win football matches and long may that continue."
It was yet another milestone day for Sergio Aguero who took part in his 100th Premier League win at the Liberty Stadium - a ground where he had been previously unable to find the back of the net.
Sterling had nothing but praise for the two-goal Argentine.
“He's great to play with - he's a player that scores goals - he's a player who makes chances and creates chances. Credit to him, he's a great striker and a great finisher."
