CENTRE OF ATTENTION: Kevin causes more panic in the Napoli defensive ranks

City are one of 11 teams who could seal qualification to the Champions League last 16 this week.

The Blues travel to Napoli for matchday four as Group F table-toppers, with nine points from a possible nine after the opening three games.

Shakhtar Donetsk are second on six points, the Serie A outfit sit third with one win and two defeats to their name, while Feyenoord are yet to pick up any points.

Those standings mean Pep Guardiola’s men need only to avoid defeat at Stadio San Paolo to guarantee their spot in the knockout stage of the competition for the fifth consecutive year.

A draw would leave City on 10 points, a tally Feyenoord would be unable to reach even if they won all of their remaining games.

Meanwhile, if Napoli were to pick up wins on matchday five and six, they could draw level on points should City fail to win in those final two games.

However, we would still qualify for the Round of 16 by virtue of our better head to head record against the Italian side.
