Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager Guardiola said his team exhausted but that he was proud of his players for holding on for a win to maintain their 100 percent record in Group F. You spend 90 minutes running. After that we were a bit exhausted, we couldn't finish our counter-attacks and we arrive late for our pressing.

"They have a big ability to make short passes. That is why I am so proud because you can not beat Napoli unless you produce a good performance".

Before the game Guardiola had lavished praise on Maurizio Sarri's Napoli, who are top of Serie A with eight wins from eight games, and afterwards he made the surprising claim they were the best opponent he had ever faced.

Chances were rare in the second half as Napoli found their feet in the game, and they could have scored in the 66th minute.

The Serie A leaders will give teams serious problems this season and the energy from Sarri must be one reason for that.

"This is one of the proudest victories of my career, I am so, so proud of my players tonight".

De Koster added: "He can't expect to win the Ballon d'Or at the moment, he's still far from footballers like Messi and CR7".

Manchester City took command of Group F in the Champions League, with a 2-1 win over Napoli on Tuesday. However, he admitted they were left ruing missed opportunities - particularly Dries Mertens' first half penalty miss.

City maintain their 100 percent start in this season's Champions League and City defender John Stones was pleased by several aspects of their performance.

"We will see if we can play better for longer when we go to Naples in a fortnight". I think I read something in the press but I have time'. We knew it was going to be a tough test.

Pep Guardiola's side continued their rampant scoring from the weekend with two quick goals, as Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus put the hosts ahead early on. Every game is a hard game.
