Raheem Sterling isn’t interested in beating Sergio Aguero to be Manchester City’s top scorer this season if the team don’t win trophies.
Two goals at Oxford were enough to move the England international onto 18 goals for the season in all competitions five clear of the Argentine, who has never finished a campaign in Manchester with fewer goals than a teammate.
Sterling looks ready to challenge Aguero as his terrific scoring rate continues, and he was happy to pick up another two to send Pep Guardiola’s team through to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.
However, the England international is more interested in beating other clubs to trophies than besting teammates in club awards.
“It wouldn’t mean anything without some silverware, The most important thing is to be in contention for silverware and then be happy with my goal tally after that.“We’re trying to compete in every competition. The Premier League looks out of reach but we’re looking to make the finals of this, the FA Cup and even the Champions League. We have to try and compete on all fronts.
