Raheem Sterling is good at everything except for shooting. He is extremely good at everything except for shooting. He dribbles like a wizard, passes like a maestro, defends like a honey badger, moves off the ball like someone who actually knows how to do that and shoots like a man with a cinderblock tied to his foot. He shoots almost reluctantly, like it's something he knows he has to do but doesn't actually want to do.
Manchester City and Liverpool have scored their fair shares of incredible goals against each other, but there's one moment in their storied history that stands out. It's from Liverpool's 4-1 win over City in 2015.
