While Aguero is on the verge of becoming the Citizens' all-time top scorer, Al Hain-Cole thinks an Englishman offers the best value to find the net

Kept on the bench in the 2-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium, Sergio Aguero will be hoping for his chance to shine when Manchester City visit Napoli in Wednesday's Champions League clash.

Needing just one more goal to overtake Eric Brook as the Citizens' all-time record scorer, the Argentina international is available at 15/4 (4.75) with bet365 to do so in style by breaking the deadlock at the Stadio San Paolo.

Considering his record of 34 goals in 50 Champions League starts, the 29-year-old will certainly represent a strong 10/11 (1.91) anytime bet should he be chosen from the off in Italy.

However, Pep Guardiola's rotation policy means that is far from guaranteed, with Gabriel Jesus chosen ahead of Aguero both in the reverse fixture and for Saturday's league win over West Brom.

Having scored the second of his side's two goals in the 2-1 victory two weeks ago, the Brazilian forward is also on offer at 10/11 (1.91) to get on the scoresheet once again.

Also on target in the last encounter, Raheem Sterling looks like the best value at 2/1 (3.00) considering he has struck nine goals in just eight starts this campaign, and similarly Leroy Sane could offer plenty of temptation at 6/4 (2.50) after finding the net eight times in nine starts himself.

At the other end of the pitch, Dries Mertens will be determined to make up for missing a penalty in Manchester, and can be backed at 10/3 (4.33) to open the scoring.

With eight goals to his name in seven home matches this season, the Belgium international certainly looks like a strong bet at 8/11 (1.73) to atone for his miss by scoring anytime.

Having each struck twice in the Champions League so far, Lorenzo Insigne 15/8 (2.88) and Jose Callejon 15/8 (2.88) are probably the most likely candidates aside from Mertens to strike for the Maurizio Sarri’s team, and Marek Hamsik can be backed at 11/4 (3.75) to finally grab the goal that would pull him level with Diego Maradona as the Partenopei’s all-time top goalscorer.
