Sergio Aguero became Manchester City's all-time leading goalscorer after finishing off this superb counterattack.

Pep Guardiola spoke glowingly of Manchester City's Neapolitan opponents after they ran the hosts close in Manchester in match-day 3 of the Champions League.

Napoli equalised from the penalty spot, only for Aguero to fire City back in front, while Raheem Sterling polished things off with a late fourth.

Stones was not to be denied early in the second period, however, as the England international's towering header hit the underside of the crossbar before bouncing over the line as City took a 2-1 lead.

The opening goal had been on the cards for some time when it arrived, with Mertens' delightful flicked return pass finding a finish to match from Insigne.

The Premier League leaders had needed just a point to seal their berth in the knockout rounds for the fifth consecutive year, with two games to go. Moments later City almost took the lead, but Stone's header rattled off the bar. However, Nicolas Otamendi leveled before the break, with his defensive colleague, John Stones, putting the visitors ahead shortly after the restart.

The hosts nearly spectacularly levelled in the 55th minute - Marek Hamsik denied his own moment of history when a thundering drive that would have levelled Diego Maradona's all-time Napoli scoring record cannoned back off the bar.

However, City showed their battling spirit as a rapid counter-attack ended in Aguero firing his name into the history books, and then with Napoli going for broke, Sterling added gloss to the result with a late strike.
