Raheem Sterling says he wants to repay manager Brendan Rodgers for placing his faith in the Liverpool youngster by scoring more goals.

The Reds boss handed the 19-year-old a chance to impress over the festive period and was rewarded after the forward scored three goals and made two assists in eight games.

I just need to keep making the box and the chances will come. Hopefully I’ll get some more goals and add to my stats

However Sterling, who made his England debut in November 2012, feels that he should be more prolific and the Reds winger is determined to add more goals to his repertoire.

“I’m really enjoying having a run in the team; anyone playing for the club would love to have a run in the team,” Sterling told Liverpool’s website.

“I’ve been given a chance, the manager has put faith in me and played me week in, week out so far. Hopefully I can produce on the pitch and carry on.

“I knew within myself that there would be a point in the season when I would get a chance. I just had to be ready.

“In training I was working hard to hopefully get a chance; the chance came and hopefully I can repay the manager by either scoring or assisting.

“Last season I looked at my game and I wasn’t making the box enough. This season, all three of my goals have come within the box.

“I just need to keep making the box and the chances will come. Hopefully I’ll get some more goals and add to my stats.”
