Life doesn’t get much better for Man City fans at the minute…
Man City put four past Serie A giants Napoli this evening as Pep Guardiola’s side continued their world class form.
Maurizio Sarri’s side opened the scoring through Lorenzo Insigne, however Guardiola’s side soon found themselves in front thanks to defensive pair Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones.

Napoli then drew level thanks to a penalty from Jorginho, however strikes from Sergio Aguero, which saw him become the club’s all-time top goalscorer, and Raheem Sterling saw the away side run out comfortable 4-2 winners.
Man of the Match:
Man City ace Raheem Sterling will take the plaudits from tonight’s match, as the former Liverpool winger played an absolute blinder to help carry on his side’s fantastic start to the season.
As well linking up well with his City teammates, Sterling also managed to grab a goal for his troubles.
This tweet does a good job of summing up his performance tonight.
Sterling was brilliant again tonight hopefully people will start to realise how good he is, maybe?!?!!

This tweet sums up just how good Sterling was tonight
Easy to forget Raheem Sterling is still only 22. Hugely impressive performance from him so far. City's best player by a distance.

Whereas this fan was all praise for City’s ever-improving star Stones
John Stones is one of the most underrated defenders in the world.
Pep is developing him so well.
