Manchester City edged past Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday with a 2-1 victory to maintain their flawless start in the competition this seasonIt took City less than 10 minutes to open the scoring.

Both sides are now in sublime form and each team sits atop of their respective leagues, with only one loss between them this season, it has all the makings of a fantastic game for the neutrals. Sarri, for his part, spoke in glowing terms about City and its attacking talent.

Manchester City have made a ideal start to their Champions League campaign with impressive victories over Feyenoord and Shakhtar Donetsk.

Man City could have added more to their tally but goal-line technology was called into action to deny them.

It looks like more good news for City fans, this morning Pep Guardiola hinted that joint top scorer Sergio Aguero could feature from the start, having looked to have fully recovered from his auto crash.

Benjamin Mendy is sidelined with a long-term knee injury while captain Vincent Kompany is still unavailable.

"Napoli's an exceptional team".

Before the game Guardiola had lavished praise on Maurizio Sarri's Napoli, who are top of Serie A with eight wins from eight games, and afterwards he made the surprising claim they were the best opponent he had ever faced.

Napoli will no doubt be City's toughest challenge in the competition so far.

Napoli suffered a surprise defeat to Shakhtar on Matchday 1 in Ukraine, but responded with a 3-1 win over Feyenoord last time out. "We need one more victory to qualify".

Napoli confirmed XI: Reina, Hysaj, Albiol.

Although we will be seeing the best in England and the best in Italy battling it out, it looks like Manchester City should have the quality and confidence to come away with a third consecutive win in the Champions League.

Maurizio Sarri's side maintained their 100 per cent start to the Serie A season with a 1-0 win at Roma on Saturday, courtesy of a first-half victor from Lorenzo Insigne.

However, Napoli could not muster another goal as City saw the game out to take another three Champions League points.

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager Guardiola said his team exhausted but that he was proud of his players for holding on for a win to maintain their 100 percent record in Group F.
