Fraser v Sterling - battle of the wingers

Both Ryan Fraser and Raheem Sterling are having unbelievable seasons. The quick men might well be the players that decide the match up at the Etihad on Saturday. While both men sit at the top of this season's assist list, the ability of Ryan Fraser at Bournemouth to keep pace with Sterling who can make assists for a star studied team is really remarkable.
Fraser and Sterling are the goal makers.
Bournemouth fans know exactly how good Ryan can be and his great energy to get up with play when Bournemouth are making breaks and looking to counter on teams. What has come along for Ryan though is his decision-making. There has been a lot less hesitation about what to do when he is attacking, and his more direct play to get up and create chances has led to a crop of chances and penalties for him and his team-mates.

But Bournemouth will have their own problems in dealing with City's winger, Raheem Sterling who seems to save his best performances for the Cherries. Keeping him off the score sheet at he Etihad has been a real weak point for AFCB and to keep a clean sheet against this City side would need AFCB's best performance of the season.

While Raheem has a few year's more experience than Ryan, I can see Ryan looking to see how he can make decisive runs like Sterling to cut teams open, and while both players are looking to improve on their finishing, I would say they are among the most exciting players to watch in the Premier League.

How great would it be for Fraser to come off the pitch on Saturday with Pep Guardiola saying that Scottish kid run us ragged today?
