Pep Guardiola used his first season in Manchester City to give City the type of shape it needs to move from a second tier to an elite European club, and it’s obvious that City have reached that level now.
For City to have beaten Italy’s finest and current league leader before their fans by scoring as much as four goals in the win, is a clear indication that City have gotten the shape which the owners of the club desired when they employed Pep Guardiola.
Napoli have conceded eight goals in eleven Serie A league matches, and for City to have scored half the number of goals they conceded in eleven games in just one match shows that City are aiming to conquer Europe while Pep Guardiola is at the helm of affairs.
More so, the fact that City beat Napoli with the likes of David Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Yaya Toure, Bernado Silva, Walker and Claudio Bravo all seated on the bench also means that City is a team that must be beaten if any other team must win the European Champions league this season.
The most difficult thing about City under Pep Guardiola is to predict accurately who will be his first eleven in any match, as the Spaniard made four changes to the squad that won West Brom in their last premier league match in the Champions league.
Hence, this makes it possible for one to say that City are capable of winning their first champions league under Pep Guardiola, while the Spaniard aim to become the second manager after Carlos Ancelotti to win three champions league.
