Danilo replaced Kyle Walker in defence, while Ilkay Gundogan, Raheem Sterling and Aguero came in for David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus, who all dropped to the bench.

15 minutes later and it was Napoli's turn to equalise as Jorginho levelled things up from the penalty spot.

Brook scored his final goal for the club in 1939, meaning Aguero has broken a record that had stood for 78 years. The Argentine then surged into the Napoli penalty box, and proceeded to power the ball home into the bottom right-hand corner, as he became City's all-time goalscorer with a whopping 178 goals to his name.

Lorenzo Insigne opened the scoring for the hosts, though Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones both headed home to put City ahead.

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.

City won the reverse fixture 2-1 at the Etihad and will expect a tough test at the Serie A side.
