Man City's Walker hails keeper Ederson for role in Napoli win

City fired past Stoke to move clear of Manchester United at the Premier League summit

The league leaders of the English Premier League [EPL] and Serie A go head-to-head on Tuesday in what should be a cracking football match.

De Bruyne gave in form Gabriel Jesus his 15th goal in 22 appearances for Manchester City this evening, but the 26-year-old's perfectly weighted pass to the Brazilian has been the biggest talking point during an entertaining first-half clash against the Italians.

Kevin de Bruyne nearly turned from provider to goalscorer in the 26th minute when his curling effort from the edge of the box struck the underside of the crossbar and bounced down onto the pitch rather than into the back of the net.

Pep Guardiola has had Ghoulam flagged up after Benjamin Mendy was ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, leaving him to currently experiment with midfielder Fabian Delph in the full-back role.

Guardiola believes that such a win was only possible because his team delivered a flawless display at the Etihad Stadium. I thought the lads showed good character out there.

Liverpool hammered Maribor 7-0, Spartak Moscow beat Sevilla 5-1, Monaco lost 2-1 at home to Besiktas, Leipzing edged FC Porto 3-2 and Shakhtar Donestk claimed a 2-1 win at Feyernoord.

It took a desperate block from John Stones to prevent Marek Hamsik reducing the arrears after substitute Allan had robbed Fernandinho and with 17 minutes remaining, Napoli did claw a goal back.

Errors crept into City's increasingly skittish defensive play, none more so than when Kyle Walker groped unhelpfully at Raul Albiol and gave away a penalty.

City lived up to their billing in the first 25 minutes. "The project City have is superb, so it's best for me".

All eyes were on prolific forwards Ronaldo and Kane, who arrived as the tournament's top scorers after two group-stage matches. His team is in line for a baptism of fire from the team that is currently the best in the world on Tuesday. However, the role he plays in this Napoli side is crucial to their wider play. "They deserve a lot of credit for how they started the game - their technique, speed, movement were outstanding - but also, we didn't apply enough pressure", he said.
