Coming off the back of a brilliant and professional victory for Manchester City against Everton, fans and pundits alike will have their heroes firmly in mind.

The sensational display of David Silva, the raw determination of Vincent Kompany, Aleksandar Kolarov's sweet near-post finish - but the man who hasn't got quite as much praise is the controversial young Englishman, Raheem Sterling.

Nowadays, when fans see that a club is paying over the odds for the star strike-force, especially when they're not scoring week-in and week-out, their performances go under the radar.

However - Sterling's dazzling runs and pace along with a sensational left-wing partnership with Aleksandar Kolarov needs to be recognised.

The Citizens look a completely different threat with the addition of the 20-year-old winger.

Sterling will be a revelation at City

Now the blues' only strengths aren't just possession and creativity in the midfield, instead City can go forward with a much brighter outlook and attack with pace.

An example of this finding - is the blues' opening goal against Everton at the weekend.

Sterling attacked John Stones at the edge of the Toffees' penalty area with direct flair, turning and twisting the English centre-back inside out for disguising a ball round the back to Kolarov for the acute opener.

Manchester City didn't really possess this kind of attacking style last season.

You could argue that Jesus Navas would take on this task of directly running at opposing defenders, but with his predictability - it just wouldn't have the same effectiveness as Sterling.

In conclusion, if there's one thing City's professional away performance can teach us, it's Raheem Sterling will potentially be an absolute revelation at the Etihad Stadium.
