Pep Guardiola is adamant Raheem Sterling will return to scoring ways after his recent run of form at Manchester City.


The England international had a brilliant start to the 2019-20 campaign but hasn't been able to find the net in the last 12 games.


Sterling's last goal was in Man City's Premier League 3-2 win against Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves in December, however, Guardiola has no doubt the 25-year-old will return to form very soon.


"He's incredibly positive, especially in the fact that when he misses one chance he tries again," he said.



"He was injured for two or three weeks and sometimes you need a little bit more time, but he's coming back.


"I never was so much worried about these kind of actions, like Ederson last time. It happens.


"These are the guys who suffer the most. When it happens they have been supported and we try to let them feel we are here for them.


"Sometimes you speak with them and sometimes you leave them free. They are so mature to understand what they have to do."
