England international attacker Raheem Sterling has scored in his last two games for Manchester City and he could make it three games on the bounce if he finds the back of the net when the holders take on out-of-form Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening.
Manchester City made it nine goals without reply in two games in all competitions when they took on Portuguese champions Sporting Lisbon in the first leg of their round of 16 tie in the Champions League. The Premier League holders scored five goals against Sporting Lisbon to add to the four goals from the Norwich City game last weekend.
Raheem Sterling was one of the four goalscorers during the Sporting Lisbon game with all the goals coming in the first half. The last 16 tie between Manchester City and Sporting Lisbon was effectively over after the first 45 minutes of the first leg as the Citizens taught their opponents a lesson on being clinical in front of goal. Apart from Sterling, the left-footed duo of Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden were also on target for Manchester City against Sporting Lisbon, while former Benfica player Bernardo Silva, a left-footer scored twice.
Manchester City made it four wins in a row with the big win at Sporting Lisbon and they would be keen to make it five wins by beating Tottenham Hotspur who have lost their last threegames in the Premier League. They lost to London rivals Chelsea, Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers in their last three Premier League games ahead of the trip to face the holders at the Etihad Stadium.
