Aguero sets the record at Napoli

Sergio Aguero became Manchester City's all-time leading goalscorer in a 4-2 win at Napoli that saw them qualify for the Champions League knockout phase with two games to spare.

Aguero underscored his name in the City history books with the winner on 69 minutes - his 178th goal for the club, one more than Eric Brook.

Lorenzo Insigne had given Napoli a deserved 21st-minute lead only for Nicolas Otamendi (34) and John Stones (48) to turn the game around. Jorginho drew Napoli level from the penalty spot on 62 minutes but further goals from Aguero and Raheem Sterling secured City's passage to the last 16.
