Manchester City's Raheem Sterling breaks the Premier League record for the most penalties won by a player after he was fouled for the 20th time in the box against Fulham.

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling has now won more penalties than any other player in Premier League history following his side's 2-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.

The 25-year-old had already broken the deadlock at the Etihad Stadium, and Sterling soon won a penalty after being fouled by Fulham's Joachim Andersen.

That spot-kick awarded by Jonathan Moss saw Sterling win his 20th penalty in the English top flight, the most by any player in the competition's history.

Kevin De Bruyne stepped up and calmly converted from 12 yards after Sterling was fouled, and the Belgian also holds a record as the player involved in the most shots in the 2020-21 campaign with 62, comprising 34 shots and 28 chances created for his City teammates.

Sterling's goal in City's comfortable win over Fulham took him up to six for the season in all competitions, with the England international reportedly set for a new deal at the club owing to his performances.

Pep Guardiola's men currently sit fifth in the Premier League table following their victory over the Cottagers.
