"I couldn't ask for a better captain," the England international is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. "Before every game he is helping me in terms of what player I am up against.

"To have someone like that to encourage you is great."

Sterling has scored seven goals in 29 games for Liverpool so far this season.
