Sterling's second goal of the night was also his 85th goal in the competition, which steered him one strike clear of former Manchester United star Ronaldo and saw him draw level with the likes of Fernando Torres and Eden Hazard in the EPL's all-time top scorers ranking.

The 25-year-old's goals are spread across his spells with Liverpool, for whom he scored 18 times in the league, and with City, with whom he has now netted on 67 occasions.
