Man City



Evening! This should be a right old rollicking laugh of a game. Manchester City are in Naples to face free scoring Napoli. And if there is one thing we know about City, it's that they aren't shy of a goal themselves. A City win and they go through, Napoli though really do need to win as well, only having 3 points from 3 games.

Team news. The hosts Napoli line up like this.

And Manchester City. Jesus, Silva and Walker are all rotated, Delph is again filling in at left back.

The teams are in the tunnel in Naples, where the atmosphere is absolutely crackling. Napoli are in light blue, City in some sort of moody blue.

Small thing that has bothered me. City's keeper Ederson has walked out third in the line of City players. I genuinely don't think I've ever seen a non-captain keeper walk out anywhere other than second or last. What a maverick man. Kick off is moments away!

1' Man City get the game underway!

2' City mooch forward early on, Sterling feeds Sane in the box but the German just couldn't quite work a clear shooting chance and he's eventually crowded out.

4' It's been a frantic start. Sterling just tackled as he tried to break through on goal before Callejon overhits a through ball at the other end.

6' Hamsik fires in a long range effort but it's straight at Ederson.

8' Mertens thumps a free kick straight into the wall.
