Manchester City FC player ratings: How Pep Guardiola's side performed v Napoli

Sane then redeemed himself with a brilliant individual effort on the counter-attack, running the length of the field and losing the ball only for Sergio Aguero to recover it and score the victor. Raheem Sterling put the gloss on City's win in the closing moments.

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.

His 178 goals have come in just 264 appearances - a rate of 0.67 goals per game.

However the 29-year-old surpassed the longstanding tally of 1930s club hero Brook when he struck in the 69th minute at the San Paolo Stadium.

Signed for a then club-record fee of £38million from Atletico Madrid in July 2011, Aguero marked his debut the following month with a brace from the bench against Swansea City.

10 - his hat-trick against Watford in September was his 10th treble for City in all competitions.

Jose Callejon, Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne lead the attack, while Faouzi Ghoulam remains a transfer target for the Premier League leaders, as his contract expires in June.

Brought up his half-century in just his 74th appearance with the first of a double in a 4-1 win over City's arch-rivals, hooking in a volley from six yards out.

"They have a devastating force of impact on matches and they have scored so many of their goals in the first 20 minutes", he added.

The goal should have been disallowed for offside - but the headed opener in a 1-1 draw at St James' Park was Aguero's 100th in the Premier League.

Sidefooted home an inviting cross from Kevin De Bruyne.
