Raheem Sterling spoke to the media following his hat-trick for the Blues on Saturday.

On the hat-trick and the 5-1 win over Bournemouth:

"That was my best game so far for City - I had chances and I finished them so I'm happy," said Sterling.

"The movement up front and the passing from midfield has been really good in the last few games and we've been playing some good, free-flowing stuff.

On the meaning of the Bournemouth victory with UEFA Champions League play and the Manchester Derby around the corner.

"We have to put this game to one side now and look towards Sevilla on Wednesday and Man United next weekend, but our focus for now is purely on Wednesday."

On playing with Wilfried Bony (who scored two goals himself) who was replacing the injured Kun Aguero:

"He held up the ball well and took his chances when they came. He was brilliant this afternoon."
