Napoli's key players could be rested against Man City in the Champions League

Napoli's key players could be rested against Man City in the Champions League

Isco will drop into a left wing position when Spurs have the ball, but for the most part he will drift infield to become a number 10 behind Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, using his late entry into the zone to his advantage.

Chelsea are not far off their place from last season, but the gap in quality feels markedly different for 2017/18's title race.

It started with a typical rush of goals.

At halftime, a very entertaining game had the hosts comfortably ahead, but surely there were more goals to come in the second half.

City looked dangerous on the counterattack but Napoli finished the stronger, Mertens squirting a shot wide after being played through and Marek Hamsik seizing on a misplaced pass but being smothered out by the diving John Stones. He will float infield to play in the half-spaces between Walker and Fernandinho, linking Dries Mertens with central midfield.

Having won each of their previous three home league games by a margin of five, City's momentum did not slow. And for a minute I lost myself. "That isn't going to happen".

When was the last time De Bruyne wasn't included in this list? It will be awhile before it is clear who is top of that pack, but it could be anyone from United to Watford.

"Pep likes playing wider than (Napoli coach Maurizio) Sarri, Napoli make a lot of short passes".

Martin Olsson is an important player for Paul Clement.

City were the side grateful for the half-time whistle, at which point De Bruyne's uncharacteristic rage with the fourth official highlighted their fraying focus.

However, as City stepped off the gas after the break, Napoli hit their stride and a second penalty - from Amadou Diawara - was converted to set up a dramatic finish.

City continued their fine start to the 2017/18 season thanks to early strikes from Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus, helping them to their 10th successive win in all competitions. Defenders worldwide are always finding it arduous to keep his passes in check from finding his teammates' legs.

Given Benfica's faltering league form and their shock 5-0 defeat to FC Basel, this should be an easy game for United; regardless of the result, it is a timely test of United's attacking speed following their turgid performance at Anfield on Saturday. In 17 Premier League appearances he has netted a remarkable 13 times and is surely well on his way to breaking all sorts of goalscoring records. The Italians were unbeaten, drawing 1-1 in Manchester before winning 2-1 in Naples.
