Manchester City will look to continue their absolute top notch form heading to this midweek where they face Napoli at in Roma, Italy on 01 November 2017. Its a massive game where top of the league Manchester City take on Serie A’s current league leaders Napoli in a mouth watering clash. Both teams have started the season strong and have identical records after 10 league games. City have won all three of their Champions League games and if they win against Napoli on Wednesday their qualification is ensured knockout stages.
Man City vs Napoli Team News & Lineups: The game will be played at Etihad Stadium where Manchester City put 7 past Stoke City over the weekend. City have scored 18 goals in the league in first 4 matches and only conceded 3 so far. However Napoli are a different cattle of fish who will bring a good solid defense and a very fast effective counter attack which City have to be vary off. With Aguero out, Manchester City lack variety upfront but their trio of Sterling, Jesus and Sane looks in absolute peach form with De Bruyne pulling the strings from midfield.
Sergio Aguero might be fit for the game but highly unlikely to be risked in this game, if anything he might play some part towards the end of the game to get some match fitness. Manchester City are unbeaten since April 2015 when Chelsea beat them and since than they have won 14 and drawn only 3 in all competitions. Captain Vincent Kompany and Benjamin Mendy are ruled while Aguero is fit enough to start.
Arkadiusz Milik and Tonelli are the only absentees from Napoli squad. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Tuesday night. Confirmed team news is updated one hour before the start of the game.
Match Predictions: City will be favourites for any game they play this season after their absolute incredible start to the season. Which sees them top of the premier league unbeaten so far and also top of group in Champions League. Another win on tuesday and their qualification is already secured for knockout stages. Guardiola can rest, swap and do whatever he likes with his squad at the moment as everything seems to be working perfectly. Napoli are no pushovers, top of the Italian Serie A winning all 7 games so far, they are contenders and should pose real threat to City in both Champions League games this season.
