Raheem Sterling

Manchester City booked a spot in the Champions League last 16 thanks to a 2-1 home win over PSG in Wednesday night’s clash at the Etihad. 

Kylian Mbappe gave the Parisians the lead early in the second half, but a Raheem Sterling strike and a late Gabriel Jesus goal gave Pep Guardiola’s side maximum points that also ensured they finished top of the group ahead of the French giants.

Sterling’s goal was a landmark for the Englishman, as he pulled level with Frank Lampard in the scoring charts of English players in the competitions.

The winger has now scored 23 goals, the same as Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, who led the Blues to the 2012 triumph.

Only Paul Scholes, 24, and Wayne Rooney, 30, are ahead of the former Liverpool man.

All-time English top scorers in the Champions League. 

  • Wayne Rooney – 30
  • Paul Scholes – 24
  • Frank Lampard – 23
  • Raheem Sterling – 23
  • Steven Gerrard – 21
