Nick Pope considers Raheem Sterling to be the most talented member of the current England team. Speaking to talkSPORT, the Newcastle United and England goalkeeper praised Sterling’s footwork as the most intricate. Chelsea’s skillful attacker possesses a number of techniques for tying up opponents.
According to WhoScored.com, he has executed the second-most successful dribbles (11) for Graham Potter’s side in the Premier League.
Within an England team not known for their spectacular flicks and taunting tactics, the Stamford Bridge star is possibly the best in this category. Pope said, “Raheem Sterling” when asked to name the most skilled Three Lions player.

Skillful Raheem Sterling
As much as we enjoy watching Sterling wrap defenders in his dancing toes, his numbers should be qualified. In addition to his 11 successful dribbles, the 27-year-old has attempted 30 unsuccessful dribbles in the league this season. This is an undesirable record for Chelsea, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek having 18 unsuccessful tries. In addition, Sterling does not necessarily employ stepovers and flip-flops.
As a result of his time under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, he is often more direct in his assault. During his time at Liverpool, the attacker was considerably more likely to attempt anything extravagant than something straightforward. Since joining Chelsea in the summer, Sterling’s career has been anything but dazzling. Perhaps he needs to reintroduce some skills to his game in order to reignite the spark that has been barely flickering for the past several months.
