Made an absolutely pivotal stop from Destro after just three minutes. Had he not done so it could have been a very different game, so a lot is owed to him.
Napoli looked most vulnerable down his flank throughout the game but he also did a good job of the supporting the forwards at the other end.
His judgement was not always of the highest quality, particularly as he played Ljajic onside early on. However, he was impressive in the air.
The Spaniard cut out a number of balls into the box, making some extremely important blocks and proving too physical for Destro.
Offered an additional attacking option on the right and he supplied a fantastic assist for Callejon's goal. Occasionally left too much space which Gervinho exploited.
Was quite dynamic in midfield, frequently pushing forward when he got in possession. He got his head up and regularly brought Higuain into the action.
Dropped into space and was not afraid to take a shot at goal from distance. He was dangerous on the ball and was always a worry for the Roma defense.
The Brazilian did plenty of running in the middle of the park and he showed great composure to dink home an impressive third for Napoli.
The Spaniard buzzed about brightly and also consistently tracked back to help defend. His powerful header gave Napoli an important first-half lead.
Proved explosive throughout the evening as his pace frequently caused problems, and it was key to his assist for the third goal.
Displayed his exceptionally intelligent movement up top. He was always ready to run in behind the defense, and headed in an important goal in the second half.
M. De Sanctis
Did not inspire confidence when coming off of his line. He was let down by his defense on two of the goals but went to ground too quickly as Jorginho scored.
The Brazilian did not stick tight to Higuain and struggled to track runners through the center, while his distribution from the back was also poor.
Had a shocker as his awful marking allowed Callejon space to head in the opener and he didn't learn his lesson as he lost Higuain on the second goal.
Was perhaps lucky not to be sent off following a late challenge on Mertens midway through the first half. He lacked commitment while walking a tightrope thereafter.
The Dutchman was industrious in midfield but failed to link to the attackers frequently enough. His dismissal brought an end to any potential comeback.
Found it difficult for much of the game in an unfamiliar position and he also failed to display his quality at the other end with a number of poor deliveries.
D. De Rossi
Frequently dropped in towards the defense to try and stop Higuain from finding space in which to cause damage. His influence wavered in the latter stages.
Was the creative hub for Roma, instigating all of its brightest moments and linking up particularly well with Ljajic throughout.
The striker was denied by Reina inside three minutes and it was his best chance of the game. He did not get the ball in areas where he could cause damage.
Made a brilliant run and cross for Destro's third minute chance but was ineffectual thereafter, with his finishing particularly woeful.
An inconsistent performance from the Ivorian as he showed moments of brilliance, as well as incompetence, with his end product lacking on the night.
Replaced Torosidis in the 49th minute and added a decent attacking outlet on the right.
Brought on for Ljajic in the 56th minute but was unable to offer anything different.
Came on for Pjanic in the 62nd minute but did not have the positive impact on the game Garcia would have been hoping for.
