LONDON | Sterling shines as City beats Arsenal in Emery’s 1st game
LONDON— Pep Guardiola hopes to convince Raheem Sterling to stay at Manchester City for a long time.
The 23-year-old England forward scored his 50th Premier League goal as the champions began their Premier League title defense with a 2-0 win at Arsenal on Sunday.
Sterling has two years left to run on the five-year deal signed when he moved to City from Liverpool in July 2015.
“We are delighted with him and would like Raheem to stay,” Guardiola said.
