​Sterling sends message to Guardiola over Man City playing time

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling is delighted to have gotten a chance to get his club career back on track in recent weeks.

Sterling was struggling for form and confidence at City at the start of the season.

Now he is back in the good graces of manager Pep Guardiola, and scored the winner in a 1-0 triumph over Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday.

"I am a player that likes to feel that they can help their team and I am really grateful to have this run in the side so I can do just that," Sterling said.

"We have got two, top players in each position that play for their national team, so there are loads of challenges."

On netting his 100th Premier League goal, Sterling added: "It is great to join a really lovely club, so I am really happy. As soon as I saw the referee point to the spot, I picked my place and went for it.

"It was really nice to see it go in. I have come to realise that once I have a decision [on where I want to put the ball], then stick with it.

"Then, it is just about execution. I have been practicing so it was good to see it come off. It is a nice achievement to get to, but the most important thing today was the win and I am just happy to help the team."
