Police say the 27-year-old woman, who is known to the footballer, was slightly injured during the incident in November in the northern city of Liverpool.
The 18-year-old Sterling, who made his England debut in November, did not attend a hearing at Liverpool Court on Friday. But Sterling's lawyer, Mick Hogan, said that the player denies the allegation and will be pleading not guilty.
