Napoli owner wants top players rested against Man City

Napoli owner wants top players rested against Man City”

Guardiola's side host Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday and the City boss praised the football being played by Maurizio Sarri's team, calling them one of the best in Europe.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City players will have no reason to feel over-confident heading into their clash with Napoli after the manager warned of the Serie A leaders' undoubted quality.

City remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season and have already scored 29 goals, with Pep Guardiola having managed to get the best out of the extremely talented array of midfielders and attackers that he has at his disposal.

"I think in the last 10 games they have played the same line-up".

He'll hope to have a similar impact to the one that former Napoli frontman Edinson Cavani did the last time these two sides met in 2011, Cavani scoring in a 2-1 win for his team, Mario Balotelli on target for City.

In Serie A, Napoli has won eight from eight games at the start of the season and is on course for a first title since Diego Maradona led the southern club to its only two league championships in 1987 and 1990.

"If they think like that, they will be stupid", Guardiola told reporters. They [Napoli] kill you with the high pressing.

"This could even be an nearly impossible game for us to win, but then they've got to come to Naples too". They are able to press our keeper.

The Spain worldwide told Mediaset Premium after helping Napoli to a 1-0 win over Roma: "We are happy to have won a tough game, as it's always hard away to Roma".

Napoli are now three points adrift of Man City in Group F having won one and lost one of their European outings so far. "I'm fortunate to have a coach who is a great strategist".
