Raheem Sterling insists it will be difficult for the other teams to match Manchester City’s consistency levels.

Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling has urged his teammates to keep pushing for more silverware this season.

A goal from Sergio Aguero and Rodri was enough to as the Sky Blues beat Aston Villa 2-1 to land their third consecutive and seventh Football League Cup trophy in total.

Pep Guardiola’s side still find them 22 points adrift of the top spot in the Premier League despite Liverpool’s shock loss to Watford.

But City still have the FA Cup to look forward to. Having won the first leg against Real Madrid, they also are considered favorites to advance in the Champions League.

And Sterling believes his side can win a hattrick of trophies this season.

“We won one title so far and we’re still in the running for two more. So, we’re fully focused and ready to do the business,” Sterling told Sky Sports.

“We just have to keep focused and that’s what we’ve done here.

“I think the fact that we’ve won eight of nine is incredible – it’s remarkable. I think it will be so difficult to do it again, not just for ourselves but for our opponents – it’s the consistency.”
