Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling is set to light up this season's Champions League according to Reds teammate Philippe Coutinho.

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has tipped teammate Raheem Sterling to be one of the stars of this season's Champions League.

The Reds return to Europe's top club competition after a five-year absence when they host Ludogrets Razgrad at Anfield on Tuesday, and Coutinho is expecting great things from his 19-year-old teammate.

The Brazilian was quoted by The Mirror as saying: "It is likely that Raheem Sterling will be one of the stars in Europe for Liverpool.

"Raheem is having a very good time at the moment and is in very good shape, so I believe he will do well this season.

"Like me, Raheem wants to attack defenders, but the difference between us is that he is very, very fast. I ¬definitely don't have the speed to catch Raheem."

Sterling came on as a substitute in Liverpool's 1-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa on Saturday.
