De Bruyne is a Ballon d'Or nominee, but despite Pep Guardiola labelling him 'the best player in Europe bar one', De Koster doesn't believe he is on a par with the likes of Messi and Ronaldo.

Atletico Madrid enters Matchday 3 in desperate need of three points after going winless in their opening two contests, a 0-0 draw away to AS Roma, and a 2-1 home loss to Chelsea.

Guardiola appears to finally have City playing the way he desires and Ian Wright isn't the only one who expects them to compete on multiple fronts this season.

"I think tonight was a great test to see where we were really at after a good run of hard games".

Napoli have won all eight of their Serie A games so far this season, scoring 26 goals and conceding just five.

But whether boss Maurizio Sarri plays the 30-year-old against City remains to be seen.

It is 10 straight wins for City in all competitions.

"We're a bit upset to concede the goal that we did".

"Ta'agbe village in Miango was attacked in which six people were killed in the night of Saturday, October 14, 2017 while 29 persons were killed and many injured in Nkiedonwhro, Irigwe Chiefdom of Bassa LGA of Plateau State".

"The match against Inter is at our door and is equally important". Jorginho is rarely spoken about in the conversation about the best European midfielders. Often found as the deepest player in the midfield, he uses his impressive range of passing to split the centre backs, aiming to progress Napoli's forward play.

Although his behaviour was purely out of frustration, the Belgium international's reaction to Silva has caught worldwide attention on social media and beyond.

Napoli's outspoken president Aurelio De Laurentiis recently claimed the Italian side would consider resting players with one eye on a crucial match against domestic rivals Inter Milan this weekend. Sarri's team is third, three points behind second-placed Shakhtar Donetsk, and could be on the brink with a loss to City in the return match on Nov. 1.

City went close again as Napoli goalkeeper Jose Reina saved a De Bruyne free-kick and a Sane shot, but the hosts were relieved to hear the final whistle. However, he may have to show a more disciplined performance if he is not to leave Napoli exposed in defence. Ultimately, Guardiola's relentless desire for attacking football will leave Walker with too much to do defensively, even though City themselves will surely score a couple.
