Manchester City vs Napoli

Manchester City vs Napoli – Manchester City hosts Napoli at the Etihad on 17th October, Tuesday in a UEFA Champions League fixture.

Manchester City sit atop the Group F standings with two wins from their first two games, while Napoli sit in the third position after suffering a shock 1-2 loss to Shakhtar Donetsk in their first game.

Pep Guardiola’s side are in the form of their life and arguably the best English side right now, dismantling teams with ease and putting up exhilarating performances, like their 7-2 win over Stoke City in the weekend.

Team News

Benjamin Mendy and Vincent Kompany are Manchester City’s only injury concerns while the visitors will be without the injured Arkadiusj Milik.

Manchester City Possible Starting Lineup: Ederson, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi, Fabian Delph, Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho, David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane.

Napoli Possible Starting Lineup: Pepe Reina, Elseid Hysaj, Raul Albiol, Kalidou Koulibaly, Faouzi Ghoulam, Allan, Jorginho, Marek Hamsik, Jose Callejon, Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne.

“I think they play a similar style to us in that they’re technical, play a lot of short, quick passes and have players in the middle who excel at that type of football. They have strikers who regularly score a lot of goals and they have huge quality.

For me, in European football, Napoli are one of the teams that are maybe the most underrated because they can beat anyone on their day. They are very dangerous and they could surprise a lot of people.”

– Ilkay Gundogan, Manchester City.
