Sterling on fire as Man City cruise past Preston

Raheem Sterling was in fine form as Manchester City cruised to a 3-0 victory over Preston North End at Deepdale on Tuesday.

England international Sterling opened the scoring with a superb solo goal before setting up Gabriel Jesus to double City's advantage.

Ryan Ledson's own goal before half-time ultimately decided the match.

Speaking after the game, manager Pep Guardiola told Sky Sports: "We made a good solid performance against a team third in the Championship, we played really good.

"I am pleased a lot with Eric Garcia and Taylor Harwood-Bellis at the back, they helped us a lot. They combined, they suit each other perfectly and they have played in the academy every weekend. They are exceptional human beings with a ood mentality.

"I am very pleased."
