Sterling expressed disappointment over failing to clinch the title while praising Liverpool for their this season's 'brilliant' performance.

"They (Liverpool) have been brilliant all year. We knew we had to start strong. We wanted to have a good game against them. I thought we started really well and credit to the boys," he said.
