With City challenging for honours domestically and in the Champions League and with a World Cup in Russian Federation at the end of the campaign this has the potential to be a defining season for Sterling.

Manchester City will be looking to maintain their winning run when they take on Napoli in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

He said: "Guardiola's praise?"

Napoli's outspoken president Aurelio De Laurentiis recently claimed the Italian side would consider resting players with one eye on a crucial match against Serie A rivals Inter Milan this weekend.

He said fans should come and watch two similarly attack-minded sides in action, but De Laurentiis told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "They are remarks which worry me". It concerned me. I wouldn't like it if Guardiola's praise resulted in my players losing focus. He's a wily old fox and knows very well that he has substantial quality in his squad.

They have now found the target 29 times in the English top-flight, to hit a 123-year high, while also collecting back-to-back wins and two clean sheets in Europe.

Aurelio De Laurentiis is prioritising Serie A.

Goodell said in a previous statement on Tuesday that "everyone should stand for the National Anthem". It discussed a possible rule change that would force all players to stand while the anthem plays.

"We don't have to win all of our games".

Even though having an impressive domestic league campaign, the Naples are acutely aware of the precarious position that they find themselves after suffering a 2-1 in Ukraine against Shakhtar Donetsk.

"That 2-1 could be important in terms of goal difference if we finish level on points with another side, in the race for second place".

"We will go away and work on that but I think it's been a great run of defensive play from all of us and I think we showed that".

'Those players that have been compiling a lot of minutes should be rested a bit in this match to keep them fresh, ' De Laurentiis said.

"We need to preserve them".

"The Inter match is around the corner and it is just as important".
