Manchester City are playing champagne football for fun at the moment, just ask Napoli.

The free scoring Italians are bossing Serie A but their 3-2 defeat at home to the Citizens on Wednesday night made it two defeats in a row against English opposition. They sit nine points off the pace in group F after three defeats and a win.

Even the free-scoring City didn't have it all their way at Stadio San Paolo, however, with the scores locked at 2-2 with half an hour to play.

Lorenzo Insigne had opened the scoring for the home side after a gorgeous assist from Dries Mertens before Nicolas Otamendi drew the scores level before half-time.

His centre-back partner John Stones then gave City the lead, incredibly drawing level with Lionel Messi in the Champions League goal scoring charts this season.

Jorginho then beat Ederson from the penalty spot before Pep Guardiola's men truly turned on the style and took it upon themselves to simply outscore their opponents.

What eventually proved the winning goal came virtue of Sergio Aguero and it marked a moment of history for both club and players as he became City's all-time top scorer.

Rippling the net in Naples elevated his tally to 178, usurping Eric Brook to the title.

It was a typically predatory finish from the 29-year-old, too, as he collected the ball from Leroy Sane's burst forward and defied Pepe Reina to find the bottom corner.

Nevertheless, a certain Benjamin Mendy noticed something about the goal and being the Twitter king he is, couldn't help trolling Raheem Sterling for his role.

The injured Frenchman noticed Sterling lurking for the lay-off and gesticulating for the pass as Aguero went on his own and scored. Check out the tweets:

Where would we be without Mendy and 140 characters to play with?

Thankfully for Sterling, though, he did manage to find the net himself to become City's top scorer so far this season - the first to reach double figures.

It's a statistic that perfectly demonstrates Sterling's form this season with his start to the 2017-18 looking to finally vindicate his £49 million move to the Etihad Stadium two years ago.

And with the Citizens scoring for absolute fun at the moment, his transfer never looked so logical.
