Man City forward beats out stiff competition for Premier League award

By Andrew Thompson Published: January 14, 2022 4:50 pm Last Updated: January 14, 2022 11:14 pm Sterling bags Player of the Month for December Manchester City is running away with the Premier League to little surprise as Pep Guardiola’s outfit has pulled ahead to a 10-point lead over Chelsea on the back of an eleven-match-winning run, and much of their recent form can be attributed to England international Raheem Sterling. https://twitter.com/ManCity/status/1481944617197182985?s=20 Sterling has been in scintillating form since coming back into prominence halfway through November, and his five goals and one assist in five Premier League outings during December were justly rewarded courtesy of the Player of the Month award ahead of the likes of Arsenal’s Martin Ødegaard. The England winger directly contributed on the scoresheet for Guardiola’s City in all five of his appearances during the hectic month, which included a brace in the 6-3 shootout against Leicester City at the Etihad on Boxing Day. Goals against Newcastle, Wolves, and Watford rounded out the end of the year. Redemption arc at Manchester City It was not long ago that rumors were rife regarding Raheem Sterling leaving Manchester City to test himself abroad amid interest from Spanish giants Barcelona. But while Sterling may very well indeed wish to play abroad at some point in what has been a stellar career in the Premier League, ESPN has assured that the jury is still out regarding what the future holds for his next contract. That keeps the door open just enough should Sterling opt for an extension at City.

Of course, there is no telling what the Sky Blues will do in the summer, especially after the club have been linked with a potential move for Erling Haaland, but for the time being, if 2021-22 is to be Raheem Sterling’s swansong at the Etihad Stadium, he is certainly on course to endear himself to the blue half of Manchester for years to come.
