Manchester City star Raheem Sterling has urged them to be patient as they bid to win the Champions League.

City are top of Group C after Sterling came off the bench to score and provide an assist in a 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday.

We created a lot of chances and we knew that if we kept playing our football, we would create another one,” Sterling said.

“That’s what we did. We kept playing our football and, at the Etihad Stadium, if we keep that tempo, that intensity, not a lot of teams can hold on. That’s exactly what happened.

“We know the teams we have in Europe, they are top opponents, so it will never be easy to win it.

“We need to keep going. The most important things is trying to qualify from this group. If we keep doing that, year in and year out, the better chance we will have to win it (the Champions League). We just need to progress the group stages and think about it later.”
