Manchester City are not invincible, says Napoli star Dries Mertens

Napoli star Dries Mertens insists Manchester City are not invincible, despite their unbeaten start to the season.
Mertens' Belgium team-mate Thibaut Courtois had previously said they are unstoppable, but the midfielder, who has faced Pep Guardiola's side twice this season, does not agree.
City beat Napoli 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium before winning 4-2 in Naples but Mertens believes the results do not reflect the performance.
"They're not unstoppable because the game at home we played really good and we had chances to make it 3-2 and we didn't score them and two seconds later they scored to make it 3-2," Mertens said.
"That was a bummer but I think they have a very good team, it's working, they're doing really good but like every team, it's going to stop one day."
Only Everton have managed to stop City winning in the Premier League, with a 1-1 draw back in August. Since then, Guardiola's side have recorded nine successive victories and are eight points clear at the top.
In Europe, City have won all four of their group games, scoring 12 goals and conceding just three times, leading to the club qualifying for the knockout stages with two games to spare.
