After winning the English Premier League Player of the Month award for September, we are giving fans a chance to ask new signing Raheem Sterling questions in our #ask twitter segment.

Signing with Manchester City from Liverpool prior to the season, Raheem has found form for both club and country and is starting to meet the great expectations put on him since a young age.

All fans have to do is send in their questions using the #askraheem hashtag and Raheem Sterling will answer five questions which will be selected at random.
Where do you feel is your best position?
Raheem how do you feel about that hobbit you use to play for being sacked after he was the reason you left and not what so ever for the money?
#AskRaheem Does it make you happy to look at the table & see the position your former employee's are in?
#AskRaheem: I've never tried laughing gas, what's it like?

Twitter Q&A: Raheem Sterling

Hi, I’m Raheem Sterling and I will be answering questions from Twitter provided by those who used the hashtag #askraheem.


I am happy to play on either the right or left wing but since moving to Manchester City I have played exclusively on the right wing. This has seen me forced to work on more aspects of my game to become more well-rounded as a player and I feel I have improved a lot since leaving Liverpool.


Brendan and I didn’t always get on, he was the only person at Liverpool that I had an issue with. He will find another managerial job but I do not expect him to ever be in charge of a club the size of Liverpool ever again.


A strong Liverpool would be good for the sport in not only England but also Europe, their performance so far this season just shows the decision I made to move to Manchester City was the right one.


If I can have that kind of ball control this season I should be in for a pretty good year!


I have nothing to say regarding this, I have now been made aware of the health risks associated with the practice and accept that my actions were of poor judgement.


Hopefully you enjoyed this Q&A and thank you to those who submitted questions.
Some nice work on the tweets there, makes for a good update :))
That Q&A made me laugh, an immaculate month as well as for the results. I can see the title being yours.
Nice start for your season man, and great updates there ;)

But, that win over Sporting, c'mon... that's evil.


October 2015



Manchester City started October in tremendous fashion by defeating Bournemouth 5-1 with striker Sergio Aguero completing a hat-trick. Next up, Manchester City took on their bitter rivals Manchester United in the Manchester derby. Anthony Martial opened the scoring in the 18th minute and despite Manchester United controlling a majority of the match, Sergio Aguero levelled the score for Manchester City to see both sides share the points.

Paris Saint-Germain was next up for Manchester City to determine who took control of Group H, a brace from Kevin De Bruyne saw City come away with a dominant 3-1 victory. After cruising to a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa, City then defeated Brentford to advance to the Capital One Cup quarter finals.

To finish the month, Manchester City defeated Tottenham 4-3 in a spectacular game which saw Raheem Sterling scoring in the 78th minute to seal the victory and complete his hat-trick.

After putting together a terrific month of results, Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini was rewarded by being named the Manager of the Month for October.

Despite not being in the starting side for a majority of the season, Samir Nasri has won the Player of the Month award for October. After a minor injury to Kevin De Bruyne and player rotation being required due to a crowded fixture schedule, Nasri found himself in the starting line up and he didn’t disappoint.

Nasri managed to put together a number of key passes and made some vital interceptions, as well as scoring two goals and providing two assists. After such great performances, it will be interesting to see if Manuel Pellegrini adjusts his line-up.

Manchester City remain on top of the table and undefeated, increasing the distance between themselves and second placed Chelsea. Leicester City continue to play well above expectations, currently sitting in third.

At the bottom of the table, Liverpool and Everton showed improved form but remain at the bottom of the table after Bournemouth’s surprise 2-0 victory over Arsenal. Aston Villa may soon slip into the relegation zone as they are yet to gain a point in six consecutive fixtures.

Manchester City dominated Paris Saint-Germain in the fixture between the top two sides of the group. They play again in the return fixture in Manchester City’s first fixture in November. A victory for Manchester City should all but seal top spot in the group.

Later in the month, Manchester City faces Sporting CP who will be looking to get revenge after losing 2-1 in the first match between the two sides.

A 3-1 victory over Brentford sees Manchester City advance to the quarter finals of the Capital One Cup where they are scheduled to face Sky Bet Championship side Wolverhampton Wolves.

Kenny Jackett’s side has had an impressive run in the tournament so far, defeating two English Premier League sides in Sunderland and Liverpool on their way to this match.


Injury Report

Bacary Sagna

During a English Premier League game against Bournemouth, Sagna suffered a hip injury. He missed a majority of October and is still expected to miss four to six more weeks.

Patrick Roberts

New signing Patrick Roberts is still recovering from a dislocated shoulder, an injury which occurred while playing for the England Under 21s. Roberts is expected to return in two weeks.

Richard Wright

The 37-year-old goalkeeper suffered in training, he is expected to be fit within a week.

Paris Saint-Germain visits the City of Manchester Stadium in the first fixture of the month in a vital fixture for Group H in the UEFA Champions League. Manchester City then faces Everton who have struggled in the league so far, currently sitting at the bottom of the table.

After a fixture against 10th placed Newcastle, Manchester City take on Sporting CP. The month finishes with a clash against Chelsea in a match between the two title favourites at the start of the season.
I don't even need to tell you how well you're doing, absolutely phenomenal!
Kicking ass mate as expected.
