Aguero becomes Man City's all-time top goalscorer

City's fourth victory out of four in Group F confirmed their progress with 12 points.

Headed goals from City's unlikely central defensive strike force of Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones either side of halftime had seen Pep Guardiola's side overturn a 21st-minute lead deservedly given to the Serie A leaders by Lorenzo Insigne.

The Argentina striker's goal in Wednesday's Champions League game at Napoli took him to 178 in City colours, moving him past Eric Brook at the top of the standings.

Napoli started the better of the two teams and created the first significant chance on goal in the 13 minute when Dries Mertens broke through on goal, but he was thwarted by the City keeper.

Frello Filho equalised before Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling secured all three points.

With Napoli having pegged City back to level at 2-2 from the penalty spot on 62 minutes, Aguero restored his side's lead seven minutes later with a cool finish from just inside the penalty area following a lightning counter-attack. Fernandinho will look to protect the backline, with Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne adding creativity.

Everybody at City would like to congratulate Sergio and we will be celebrating this momentous Club achievement over the next few days.

Five minutes into the second half Stones did find the back of the net for City when he met a corner-kick with a powerful header that beat the Napoli keeper, 2-1.

Referee Felix Brych pointed to the spot when City failed to clear a corner after the hour and Albiol went down under a challenge from Sane, despite contact appearing minimal.
