Liverpool whiz Sterling: Chelsea's Ivanovic my scariest opponent

Liverpool superkid Raheem Sterling says Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has so far been his most fearsome opponent.

The teen has been a revelation for the Reds this season.

Sterling told the Daily Mail: "I know I get kicked a lot. I didn't know I was one of the most fouled players in the league. If that's what it takes and we get free-kicks, I will take getting the kicks.

"The scariest to play against was Branislav Ivanovic. He wasn't dirty, the guy is just a tank! A big guy, big upper body, big lower body. A real tank. But I've always played against guys who are bigger than me."
