Sterling: Liverpool deserve top spot

Raheem Sterling says Liverpool thoroughly deserve to be sitting on top of the Premier League table.

The Reds defeated Tottenham 4-0 on Sunday to move two points clear of Chelsea after the same amount of matches and four ahead of Manchester City who have two games in hand.

After the match, star winger Sterling was thrilled to help the Anfield side to an eighth-straight win which has them in with a great chance of finally breaking their Premier League hoodoo.

"The target was to get the three points again today, and it's a great credit to the boys," he told Sky Sports.

"It's a great feeling, not just for me but for the whole team.

"It's great to be at the top of the league after today's win. It was a great team performance and the boys really deserve to be at the top of the league."
