Raheem Sterling put in a man of the match performance against Queens Park Rangers as he was involved in all three Liverpool goals on his return to Loftus Road for the second time since leaving for Liverpool four years ago.
All eyes were on the teenager before the game after a turbulent week in which the England manager disclosed that the player confessed to being tired in a training session before their European Championship qualifier against Estonia and featured for the final 23 minutes in which he won the free kick that Wayne Rooney curled home for the winner.
Sterling has become an integral member of the Liverpool attack since the turn of the year and even though he wasn’t involved much in the first half an hour of what was a turgid display by his side, the youngster ended up being the star performer on the day.
Starting on the right side of attack, he constantly dropped deep to receive the ball in midfield before laying off a pass and spinning away to join a lonely Balotelli in attack. His heat map shows how often he was present in the centre of midfield and it was his runs with and without the ball through the middle that led to Liverpool’s second and third goals.

In the first of two exciting fixtures in the space of four days, Real Madrid travel to England to take on Liverpool in the Champions League at Anfield.
Barcelona, who are due at the Bernabeu on Saturday, will have to wait.
Liverpool’s famous home will represent a difficult pre-Clasico task; the last time Los Blancos played there—in the same competition in 2009—they were knocked out by Rafael Benitez’s Reds.
A lot has changed since then, though, and Madrid, the reigning European champions, start the game as heavy favourites given their recent form and goalscoring exploits.

Liverpool FC defender Martin Skrtel believes Cristiano Ronaldo is the best footballer on the planet but he’s relishing the prospect of facing Real Madrid’s talisman in the Champions League tomorrow night.
The Portugal international has netted 18 goals in his last 10 games for club and country – but hasn’t scored on his previous five appearances at Anfield.
As well as Ronaldo, Skrtel will also have to contend with the likes of James Rodriguez, Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos.

After stealing all three points at the death at Queens Park Rangers on Sunday, Liverpool will hope fortune is on their side again this Wednesday, when they welcome Real Madrid to Anfield for a Champions League group-stage clash.
Liverpool’s recent stuttering form marks a significant contrast to Real Madrid, who have Cristiano Ronaldo in scintillating form this season, as he has scored a whopping 15 in just seven La Liga games this season. Two of those came in a 5-0 rout of Levante this weekend. Compare that with the Reds’ overall tally of 13 in eight as a team.
With an all-star attack coming up against their leaky defence, Liverpool will be hoping they find some much-needed clinicalness upfront, especially with the recent news that Daniel Sturridge has suffered a setback in his recovery from injury, as confirmed by Brendan Rodgers, per James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo (via Tom Sheen of The Independent).
