Jamie O’Hara, a former Premier League midfielder, does not believe that Chelsea winger Raheem Sterling has accomplished anything remarkable this season.

One talkSPORT caller suggested that Raheem Sterling should have been included in the England squad after the 1-1 draw with Ukraine, but O’Hara still understands Gareth Southgate’s decision not to include the 28-year-old.

On Sterling, the former Tottenham Hotspur player stated, “Chelsea through the first three games, he’s done fine. He was not doing anything extraordinary. Who did he face in competition? Nottingham Forest was incapable of hitting a barn door.”

The Blues have not gotten off to a strong start in the new Premier League season, accumulating only four points in their first four games.

However, Sterling has been one of the few bright spots and scored twice in their lone Premier League victory, a 3-0 victory over Luton Town.

Raheem Sterling should have been selected by Gareth Southgate.
Even though Sterling has not distinguished himself this season, he could have been a very valuable asset for England.

The former Manchester City star, who cost Chelsea £50 million, has rarely let England down, scoring in significant tournaments.

In addition, Southgate has called up players such as Harry Maguire and Kalvin Phillips, who have scarcely played for their respective clubs this season.

Obviously, there is no assurance that England would have triumphed yesterday if Sterling had been on the team. However, he is unquestionably an assaulting option you should have available.

As far as Chelsea is concerned, Sterling will be rested and available to play when Mauricio Pochettino’s side takes on Bournemouth next Sunday when the Premier League resumes, a game they must win after their shocking loss to Nottingham Forest.
