Cape Town - Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has revealed that he has made changes to his lifestyle, which are helping him perform consistently.

The England international was criticised in the past for his disappointing performances and off-field behaviour.

However, he has now made changes that he believes has already improved him as a player and has made him a more valuable member of the City outfit.

"The environment is really good and I am keeping myself to myself, keeping away from certain stuff I was doing last year," he told Sky Sports.

"It is doing me the world of good, so that is what I need to keep doing. I am enjoying my football."

"I need to be a player who helps the team on a regular basis, not just once every few months," he added. "That is what I am trying to do. It will take time but I will get there."

The 21-year-old has scored five goals and assisted in a further seven in his 19 appearances in all competitions this season.

Sterling will be hoping to make a positive impact when the Citizens welcome log-leaders Chelsea to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, as a win for Pep Guardiola's men would see them leap-frog the Blues.

Kick off is at 14:00.
