Raheem Sterling insists he will only listen to the people who matter as the 18-year-old continues to navigate the early stages of his career at Liverpool.
A whirlwind season has catapulted the teenager to stardom, with a long-term Anfield contract and senior England honours following in the wake of his promotion to the Reds' first team.
But Sterling is confident he can cope with the expectancy surrounding his performances, especially with the help of manager Brendan Rodgers.
He commented: "I try not to take in what people are saying and just listen to the manager and the people who have influenced me to play football.
"Hopefully I can just do well and not let it take up too much of my head, just play my normal game and goals and assists will come.
"I don't really listen to anyone apart from people at the football club.
"It is a big step for any 17- or 18-year-old to come and play in the Premier League with players like Steven Gerrard and the expectation is going to be high week in, week out.
"But as a young player you just have to keep playing."
