Sergio Aguero became Manchester City's all-time record goal scorer after scoring against Serie A giants, Napoli in a Champions League encounter on Wednesday night.

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.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Maurizio Sarri or Josep Guardiola?

Napoli, by contrast, were sharp and produced a number of good attacks in the opening quarter.

Dries Mertens had already tested Ederson twice and Marek Hamsik had also tried his luck from long range. I've been lucky to play with them.

SPAN Will Use Facebook to Live-Stream Hearings on Russia Political Meddling
US social media giant Facebook will roll out new measures to increase transparency of political advertisements on its platform. That estimate is up from a tally of 201 accounts that Twitter reported in September.

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

Ilkay Gundogan, Danilo, Sterling and Aguero were all recalled at the expense of Kyle Walker, Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Gabriel Jesus.

Kalidou Koulibaly is one booking away from a suspension in the competition and the same can be said for Kevin De Bruyne. Aguero headed another chance wide before Raheem Sterling, claiming a push by Elseid Hysaj, had a penalty appeal rejected.

Napoli cleared the resulting corner behind but conceded from City's second attempt as Stones powered in Sane's outswinger via the underside of the crossbar.

Ederson saved a spot-kick from Mertens in Manchester but Jorginho stepped up to calmly send him the wrong way. He was unable to beat the last defender but Aguero picked up the loose ball and showed great composure to continue the charge and thump a shot into the bottom corner. They've got a ideal record after three games and can secure their place in the next round with a win tonight.
