Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling is not getting carried away with his rapid rise to fame.

The 18 year old has played in 20 of his side's 21 top-flight matches and has signed a new five-year contract to keep him at Anfield.

"I try not to take in what people are saying and just listen to the manager and the people who have influenced me to play football," he said.

"Hopefully I can just do well and not let it take up too much of my head, just play my normal game and goals and assists will come.

"I don't really listen to anyone apart from people at the football club.

"It is a big step for any 17-18-year-old to come and play in the Premier League with players like Steven Gerrard and the expectation is going to be high week in, week out.

"But as a young player you just have to keep playing."
