Yankee Stadium attendance was at 49,653 as fans came to watch Liverpool play Manchester City in the International Champions Cup. Liverpool won 3-1 on penalties with Simon Mignolet the hero in Liverpool’s goals during the penalty shoot out.

With Luis Suarez leaving Liverpool the expectation was Sturridge would take centre stage and I am glad to see Sterling continue to score as part of his usual contribution of being a problem to the opposition’s defense.

Sterling’s stats last season show a goals per 90 min ratio of 0.37 – better than Eriksen, David Silva, Oscar, Barkley, Lallana and Wilshere – all players who primarily play in the number 10 or from wide, like Sterling. His shooting accuracy also compares well, better than all of the above, bar Eriksen, with whom he ties on 67%

Stevan Jovetic was a £22mil purchase for Manchester City last season who only started in five games of all competitions. I thought it was because of lack of faith from Pellegrini but it was more due to injuries and illnesses.

He is looking in fine form in this pre-season, scoring a brace against Liverpool at the Yankee stadium.

It’s hard to tell anything from these pre-season games. While Liverpool beating Olympiakos 1-0 at Soldier Field in Chicago is not impressive, Sterling scoring as a result of a goal attempt by Sturridge is the kind of trend I want to see more of this season.
