Raheem Sterling Put Up a Show for Man City Against Atalanta
Raheem Sterling scored a second-half hat-trick as Manchester City moved closer to securing their progression from Champions League Group C with an emphatic 5-1 win over Atalanta.
Ruslan Malinovskiy’s penalty capped a fine start for Atalanta, but the Serie A side were little match for City once Pep Guardiola’s men – led by the impressive Sterling – clicked into gear.
Sergio Aguero was the benefactor of Sterling’s work in the first half, tucking in from a brilliant cross before converting a penalty the England forward won.
Sterling took matters into his own hands from then on – his treble coming in the space of 11 productive minutes for City, though the emphatic win was marred by the late dismissal of Phil Foden.
