According to the former English Premier League footballer, Sterling is thriving under the management and supervision of Pep Guardiola

Jamaica-born English midfielder Raheem Sterling has been with Manchester City since 2015.

The winger has scored 37 goals in 106 appearances.

And for former English Premier League footballer Danny Higginbotham, he can score 30 goals this season if he continues to thrive under Pep Guardiola.

“People still say his finishing isn’t great and we still talk about him missing chances, but this is a player who scored 23 goals last season playing as a winger more often than not,” Higginbotham told Sky Sports.

“If that finishing does get better I believe he can get 30 goals this season, not a problem at all. If he misses a chance, he has no problem with it because he’ll go back, get the opportunity again and put it in the back of the net.”

“I think he’ll break the record he set for himself last season of 23 goals and I think he’ll be pushing 30 plus this season,” he added.

“When you look at Manchester City before Guardiola and Manchester City now with Guardiola, obviously they’re fantastic on the ball but it’s the movement off the ball as well which has improved.”
