Raheem Sterling wants to win three Premier League titles in a row with Manchester City if they can clinch the crown against Brighton

City won the title in record-breaking fashion last season and would make it back-to-back league successes if they match or better Liverpool’s result against Wolves on Sunday, with the Reds just one point behind. 

But Sterling is still hungry for more silverware and is already thinking about next season. 

“If you've won it two years in a row and have the same players, the same manager, I don't see why you shouldn't be looking to win it again,” Sterling said. 

“Nothing has changed. Other teams will be trying even harder to win but at the same time, if you can win it twice in a row, then have a chance to win it a third time. 

“I think you have to look at that and try and win it because you are creating history.” 

The England winger was crowned the Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year after scoring 17 goals and assisting 12 more in 33 league appearances this season to help his side to the top of the table and has evolved into a goalscoring threat under the guidance of manager Pep Guardiola. 

And he’s still looking to reach a higher level as a player, with the hope of winning more titles with his club.  

“It's always the case that I'm looking to improve. 

"I'm a professional, 24 years of age, being in title runs and winning trophies is the most important thing as a player. 

“Each year you try to do better than your previous, that's exactly what I'm doing and for sure I want to get better. 

“There's more that I set out to do. This is the stuff I want to achieve and for sure I'll do my best to get there.” 

City have also won the Carabao Cup this season and are into the FA Cup final, where they will take on Watford

If they go on to lift both the Premier League and FA Cup trophies, they will become the first team in history to complete a domestic treble.
