Sterling could be the player who will break the number nine curse at Chelsea. The Englishman could be the next Didier Drogba of Chelsea. Let’s take a look at how Sterling’s Premier league statistics relates to that of Didier Drogba.
The Retired Ivorian striker scored 104 goals and provided 64 assists in 254 premier league games for Chelsea. Whereas Raheem Sterling scored 109 goals and provided 77 assists in 320 premier league games for both Manchester city and Liverpool.
Judging based on the goals and assists per game, it is obvious that Drogba is more clinical and productive infront of the goal than Sterling, oweing to the fact that he played fewer games than the Englishman. Sterling will be the player that will be leading Chelsea’s attacking line next season.
He still has the chances of reaching the 200-goal mark in Premier league. He has proven that he is one of the best forwards in the Europe’s top five leagues and cost Chelsea a transfer fee of 45 million Euros.
