SWP: Man City winger Sterling has striker finishing ability

Former Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips is convinced Raheem Sterling can double his goals record.

Sterling reached 100 Premier League goals for City last week.

The England forward, who turned 27 earlier this month, has an average of approximately one goal every three games, with 442 career appearances yielding 143 strikes to date.

“To reach 100 Premier League goals as he did recently is a massive achievement," said SWP to City's website.

“If he can keep that sort of form going and keep scoring like he has been, in six years' time or less, he can take it to 200 goals.

“That shows you how well he has done in a short space of time and he might have now joined the 100 Premier League goals club, but he can start creating his own goal-scoring clubs!

“It is fantastic to see. He scores goals from outside and inside the box and he can score penalties, too. As a winger he has an all-round collection of goals as though he was actually a striker."
