    I haven't watched many full Napoli matches, didn't realize he'd been moved to the middle. That's great. I always thought he'd be good there, as he has great vision and passing, just thought he'd never get the chance.

    Well, to a certain extent perhaps. I actually agree with you that Napoli used to struggle a lot and had obvious problems at bringing the ball forward. Behrami and Inler are both below average in possession and none of their central defenders are good at bringing the ball forward either. Albiol usually tries to play long passes into wide areas but they are rarely successful.

    That's where Jorginho enters the picture. What a brilliant player that is! Constantly plays passes straight into the attackers feet and has improved Napoli so much. Also, I'd say that Napoli's entire front three is pretty good and creative. Even Higuain has a creative side to him.

    They only look clueless when they are without Jorginho and when they have to break down teams that sit deep. Inler and the other scrubs just aren't good enough.

    Took the idiot coach 3 years to do it (took a friggin injury to Milik), but the results speak for themselves. Mertens ripping it up.

    Hope Dries has something left for blancos. Would be a shame if his goalscoring form dries up now.

    Hasn't been a shrimpier front line since Villa-Messi-Pedro. Insigne-Mertens-Callejon.

    Lovely curler goal today. And a well-taken penalty for a brace.

    Also a gorgeous reverse throughball carpet pass at the top of the box that Callejon couldn't put on target. About 1:40 into this video.

    Another brilliant finish today. Lots of great playmaking earlier in the game as well.
