Liverpool have seen their title challenge stall somewhat so far this season and now it looks like being a massive ask to finish at the summit of the Premier League table.
However, to finish in the top four again and consolidate their Champions League status would still represent an achievement for Brendan Rodgers and his squad – but they seem to be relying rather heavily on one player to do it.

With that in mind, here are three reasons we think Liverpool have to STOP relying on Sterling if they want to go places this season.
