Sane has scored three goals in nine Premier League appearances this season and, after playing a starring role in the win that placed the champions back on the top of the table, he spoke about the importance of numerous players sharing in the responsibility for scoring.
After initially being criticised for his lack of end product, the tricky winger has been a revelation under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola, who has explained the change in mentality since he first arrived in Manchester. He is stable and is focused on what he has to do to become a better player. It was an incredible performance with and without the ball but still with the young guys like him and Leroy [Sane], I would like to feel they can still improve.
In truth, one of them probably should have just had a shot but you can't blame them for wanting to score the flawless goal.
"Still hes loses simple balls, like the Tottenham game when he made an awesome assist in the first few minutes but then lost a lot of balls". He is becoming a winning player.
"Leroy is always a man who looks up for me", said Sterling.
The Citizens had their ninth top-flight win of the season wrapped up with less than a quarter of the game played, finding themselves three goals to the good through a Wesley Hoedt own goal and strikes from Sergio Aguero and David Silva.
Sterling added his second of the game midway through the second half before Sane completed the rout in stoppage time.
In yesterday's other game, second-place Chelsea breezed past Crystal Palace 3-1 at Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old has improved hugely since the arrival of Guardiola but the City boss says the players deserve the credit for their willingness to learn. We concede a lot of corner kicks and with the best taker in the league [James Ward-Prowse] like Southampton had.
