Raheem Sterling’s Chelsea career for off to a very slow start, in part due to the poor overall performance of the squad last season.
Sterling looked a shadow of the player he was at Manchester City but things look to be different this year.
Sterling has been one of the Blues’ best players in their first three games of the season.
And after scoring a brace vs Luton, the Englishman has revealed the advice Pochettino gave him.
Speaking after the win, Sterling told Sky Sports: “In the first game against Liverpool I was inside the pocket too much, and that was my feeling all last season, that I was too deep. We had a simple conversation. And [Pochettino] just said: ‘Raheem, as long as you’re dynamic, whether left, right or centre, as long as you are aggressive no one can stop you.’”
Asked about being Chelsea’s top scorer, he added: “It’s a target I had to set myself, it’s something I know I can do. If I’m 100 percent at something, I know what I can do and that’s what I’m doing this year, just 100% focus on scoring goals and helping my team.”
