Four minutes later, the in-form Kevin De Bruyne created the second, powering down the right flank and delivering a pinpoint low cross to Gabriel Jesus, who made no mistake.

They have now won their last ten straight games, and are on course to reach the Champions League knock-out stages. If we don't play good we can not beat that team, it's impossible. "There's nothing wrong, after one minute then it's over". Napoli are third on three points, three behind second-placed Shakhtar.

Napoli had a glorious chance to pull one back 64 minutes in when, after one risky pass too many at the back, Fernandinho was caught out and Mertens took advantage by squaring for Marek Hamsik.

Napoli rode its luck, with De Bruyne crashing a 20-metre curler against the bar and Koubibaly clearing off the line from Jesus, but came into the game before halftime.

De Koster added: "He can't expect to win the Ballon d'Or at the moment, he's still far from footballers like Messi and CR7".

Midfielder of Turkish origin Ilkay Gundogan will have to continue waiting for his first Champions League start of the season as he also starts on the bench.


Talks are coming, ' said De Bruyne. We scored the two goals.

Guardiola was arguably even more gushing as he labelled Napoli "one of the best sides I faced in my career, probably the best".

"With some of the goals we were running up, the boys were thrilled at how we had scored", said centre-back John Stones.

Napoli only have one real injury concern, following Saturday's victory over Roma, midfielder Jorinho suffered a knock and the Italian worldwide looks set to be replaced by Marko Rog.

"We are scoring goals, making assists and winning games and that is the main thing".
