Raheem Sterling is back from his break and ready to trouble Aston Villa this weekend.
Brendan Rodgers will be delighted that Liverpool were able to win both their matches while Sterling took a nice winter holiday in the Caribbean, and the striker is back in training and should take back the striker spot from Fabio Borini for the trip to Aston Villa. As always, Sterling’s pace, direct running and trickery will present the opposition’s defenders a host of problems and we expect a big week from the young man. Jan 16 - 4:36 AM

Raheem Sterling is enjoying an extended break in Jamaica and will not play against Sunderland this weekend.

The England starlet has been in the West Indies recharging his batteries after Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers gave him a midwinter holiday. Sterling was born in Kingston on the Caribbean island and lived there until moving to England at the age of four. He has already missed Monday’s 2-1 FA Cup victory over AFC Wimbledon and he will not play against Sunderland this weekend. The 20-year-old forward is due back at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground next week, with Rodgers hoping he will be re-energized after a gruelling season for club and country. Sterling’s absence means there have been no further talks on his new contract offer from Liverpool. Rodgers is desperate to persuade him to stay and fend off strong interest from Real Madrid.

Raheem Sterling led the line for Liverpool and helped the Reds to three much-needed points with the only goal of the match as they earned a 0-1 road win against Burnley.

It was one moment of magic from the Reds today but they will happily take the points even though their attack still has much to improve upon. Burnley were the better side in the first half and were at least equal to Liverpool over 90 minutes, but the one moment bit them. Phillipe Coutinho collected a loose ball as Pool pushed toward the Claret goal, and he flicked a smart pass to Sterling who used his pace to knife through the defense and dance around the keeper to finish smartly with his sixth league goal this season. Call it a coincidence, but the Reds first win since Week 14 against Leicester. Pool need to do better than to only collect wins against promoted sides and will face a tougher test against Swansea on Sunday.

Raheem Sterling can help Liverpool get back to winning ways as the Reds head to Burnley's Turf Moor on Boxing Day.

Brendan Rodgers has changed Liverpool’s system in recent matches and this switch has Sterling playing as the main striker, which is always a huge bonus when a player is listed as a midfielder in a fantasy game. Sterling had been going through a difficult spell over the past month or so but this new position has the England man looking a genuine goal threat again and he’s an extremely tempting option for Week Eighteen as the Reds travel to Burnley.

Liverpool suffered perhaps their most frustrating result of the season, losing 3-0 at Old Trafford to Manchester United as the season for the two sides continues to head in opposite directions.

"Frustrating" is a common description for a result that goes bad in the Premier League, but there really is no better word for what the Reds endured today. They came out on the front foot, and Raheem Sterling used his pace to sneak himself into high percentage scoring positions but he was denied by David De Gea early and often and though Pool had the game on paper, United were in control 2-0 at the half. The missed opportunities for Raheem Sterling shifted to Mario Balotelli, who came on as a substitute in the second half and proceeded to, well, be Mario Balotelli -- show massive flair, come up empty and pick up a silly yellow card in the process. Today's result was a reflection of the two biggest names in the league last year no longer around - Luis Suarez, which has turned Pool from title contenders into mid-table mediocrity and David Moyes, who's epic fail of a season at Old Trafford can be forgotten about as van Gaal rights the ship.

Liverpool and Sunderland ended in a scoreless draw Saturday with both teams showing very little to be desired.

Raheem Sterling had a few bright moments, but overall Liverpool lacked quality in the final third. The game picked up a bit with the insertion of Steven Gerrard with about 25 minutes to go, but they couldn't breakdown Sunderland's defensive approach to the game. The Reds have scored one goal or less in six of its last seven games. In that same span Sterling has just two assists and he hasn't found the back of the net since September 20. He's an intriguing player, but his inconsistency to get on the scoresheet will hurt you. Continue looking elsewhere for a replacement.

With league leaders Chelsea up next for Liverpool, there seems to be little reason left to invest in Raheem Sterling.

Hopefully, you are one of many a manager who decided to ditch Sterling a couple of weeks ago, once it was seen that an attack led by Mario Balotelli had no appearance of a successful one. Sterling has returned four points in back to back weeks in the Yahoo format and with Chelsea coming to town, it would be a leap of faith to invest in any Liverpool players. Hopefully, once Chelsea are out of the way, Daniel Sturridge will be close to returning after the oncoming international break.

Raheem Sterling is tipped to perform well as Liverpool travel to QPR.

It's been a difficult week for Raheem Sterling thanks to the ridiculous "Tiredgate" furore that developed during the international break, but Liverpool boss Brendan Rodger will have made sure that the 19-year-old knows that he has done nothing wrong. Expect a reaction from Sterling, who will be mightily relieved that he has the opportunity to put the nonsense behind him with a big performance against bottom side Queens Park Rangers this weekend.

Liverpool found themselves down by two goals and were forced to change tactics due to a key defensive injury early in their match with West Ham and they could not recover, losing their third match in four, 3-1.

The Reds were given a swift uppercut early and just could not get it right today after Javi Manquillo was forced off due to injury. It proved to be a perfect example however of how even when the Reds are struggling, Raheem Sterling has the special kind of flair that can create and score goals in any given match. Like last season, Pool look to have issues in defense and the signing of Dejan Lovren has yet to pay dividends, meaning their attack once again has to be leaned on, but in this post-Suarez team, those 4 and 5 goal games may be harder to come by

Liverpool earn three points over a tenacious Southampton side with a 2-1 win as Raheem Sterling notched his first goal and assist of the season.

Sterling was the first man on the score sheet when, in the 23rd minute, he was fed an exquisite through ball from Jordan Henderson and beat Fraser Forster with a well-composed strike. After the Saints leveled things in the 2nd half, Sterling flicked a header on that found Daniel Sturridge at the back post who squirted one in with the slightest of touches. Sterling was a force today, getting forward at will, and though he may have some quiet performances here and there during the season, he generally has to be considered among fantasy midfield options, week in and week out.

Benfica winger Lazar Markovic's rumored move to Anfield appears to be hours away from being completed according to journalist Richard Buxton who covers the Reds.

Such is the talent of Luis Suarez that it's hard to get a handle on the sort of player you should bring in to replace him. On the surface, Markovic is fast, young and talented which are all good things to be adding to the squad. What is less clear is where he fits in with Sterling, Coutinho, and Henderson behind Daniel Sturridge (we're assuming that Emre Can and Steven Gerrard will lock down the other two midfield spots). This isn't to suggest that having depth in attacking options is a bad thing but as far as improving the overall quality of the first team, this may not be the move that supporters are going to get instant gratification from.

Look away Liverpool supporters, in addition to the Luis Suarez-to-Spain and the Luis Suarez Biting stories you now have to face the possibility of Raheem Sterling moving to Real Madrid.

Reports in the Daily Mirror indicate that Real Madrid are interested in the emerging England and Liverpool winger to provide a second speedster in the line-up when Ronaldo is out injured. Until we see Sterling's name in Real Madrid-friendly Marca linked to the club, I'd take this with a grain of salt. Sterling is very young and shows a great deal of potential but Real Madrid tend to buy the finished article and, lest we forget, Theo Walcott, Andros Townsend and Aaron Lennon have all had moments where they were what Raheem Sterling is now (young, fast, full of potential) and none have ended up being the sort of players who turn up for Real Madrid.

England XI: Hart; Johnson, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines; Gerrard, Henderson; Welbeck, Sterling, Rooney; Sturridge.

FIFA's Official World Cup Twitter had earlier reported that Adam Lallana was in the XI but his name has since been replaced by Danny Welbeck. The big question here was whether Raheem Sterling would get the start and in fact he does, in a formation that appears to hand him the #10 role, though he and Rooney may well switch things up. All eyes will be on the young roadrunner. The Italian defense may have a tough assignment in containing him.

Raheem Sterling received a red card in today's friendly against Ecuador but will serve his suspension against Honduras and will be available for England's World Cup matches.

Sterling was sent off for a nasty challenge on Antonio Valencia, who was also dismissed for grabbing Sterling by the throat following the challenge. Valencia will also be available for his team's World Cup matches. Both the challenge by Sterling and the reaction by Valencia were uncalled for and both managers will have something to discuss as the World Cup approaches.

Liverpool opened up a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League after a hard-fought 3-2 victory at Norwich.

It's Liverpool's to lose now. Brendan Rodgers' men were out of the traps quickly as usual and were 2-0 up within 11 minutes thanks to a fine long-range strike from Raheem Sterling and a neat finish from Luis Suarez. The Reds seemed in control until Simon Mignolet's error allowed Gary Hooper to grab a goal back for Norwich, before Sterling made it 3-1 after a run and shot that deflected off Bradley Johnson, looping over John Ruddy. The Canaries didn't give up and managed to nick another goal back thanks to a Robert Snodgrass header, but despite the pressure in the closing minutes Liverpool survived and are now in complete control of the title race. Norwich remain in deep trouble, just two points outside the relegation zone.
