Sergio Aguero breaks Manchester City goalscoring record against Napoli

Manchester City have secured their spot in the knockout round of the Champions League with two games to spare courtesy of a 4-2 win away to Napoli on Wednesday night.

The man he replaces as City's leading goalscorer, Brook, scored his 177 in 450 appearances between 1927 and 1939.

City boss Pep Guardiola made four changes to the team that started against West Bromwich Albion in the league at the weekend.

Napoli, for their part, still top Serie A following their stunning start to their domestic season.

He is flanked by Sane, who is yet to score in the Champions League, and Raheem Sterling.

"Their matches have all been over by the 70th minute".

Tropical Storm Philippe may form by weekend
According to the NHC, environmental conditions are "conducive for the development of a tropical depression or tropical storm". Currently, winds are 40 mph with high gusts, and the system is forecast to strengthen within the next 24 to 36 hours.

Eight minutes later Mertens turned provider when he played a precise pass to Lorenzo Insigne who turned the ball home in clinical fashion from 12-yards out, 1-0.

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.

The Citizens edged out Napoli 2-1 in the reverse group stage game at the Etihad and are now looking to do the double over Maurizio Sarri's men.

Manchester City's Nicolas Otamendi, back to camera, celebrates with teammates after scoring tonight.

Yet after Jorginho had equalised with a penalty just after the hour, Aguero's predatory instincts ensured City were not to be denied in their bid to become the first English team to win a European match in Napoli's forbidding San Paolo Stadium.
