What Raheem Sterling said
He is currently the joint second-highest goal-scorer in this season’s English Premier League.
“It’s a target I had to set myself – being Chelsea’s top scorer this season. It’s something I know I can do,” said Sterling.
“If I’m 100 percent at something, I know what I can do and that’s what I’m doing this year – just 100 percent focus on scoring goals and helping my team.
“I want to get back to being obsessed with football. Just football 24/7 and nothing else and focus on top performances and goals and assists.”
