Raheem Sterling admits this has not been his best season.
The England international has opened up on his struggles this season even after winning the Premier League and the Carabao Cup for the fourth time in a row.
He has managed to bag only 14 goals this season compared to 31 last season and has admitted to not being close to his usual high standards.

“I could be better in a lot of aspects, but a lot of things come into play in a football season, a lot of things that fans and you guys [the media] do not see,” Sterling told Times of India.
“You would never understand. At the same time, everyone has their opinion on my season. At the end of the season, if you look at the team, even in the last couple of months with the games that I have missed out, I am still top two/three goal scorers in the team.
“Missed out on some vital games which as a player is disappointing. But at the same time, I am nowhere near the level I know I can be. At the same time, in our season I am one who is still producing the most goals.”
