M. De Sanctis
In truth the veteran was rarely tested, but he made a fantastic reaction stop on Borriello's deflected header and was off his line quickly to deny Menez on a break.
Unspectacular but effective. He showed his strength against Roma's attackers on several occasions.
Did his duty defensively and came forward to kill off the match with an overlapping run as his cross was deflected into the Roma net to make it 2-0 late on.
Not a vintage performance from the right-sided player, but he put in some good crosses and won his battle with John Arne Riise.
The former Liverpool man nearly scored the goal of the season on a fantastic counter and also assisted the opener with a low ball into the area.
The centre-back was solid in defence and kept Borriello quiet, while he also made a vital block on Cicinho in the first-half.
An incredible young player. Always looking to put his foot on the ball and help his team-mates. Kept his cool when in space to score the 1-0.
A quiet match for the ex-Viola man, but he worked hard in the centre of the pitch to win the midfield battle in the second-half.
The Uruguayan midfielder was not at his most impressive, but he settled in the second half and dictated play in spurts.
Another sparkling performance from the Argentine, who beat his markers with ease all day. He was just too quick for a lacklustre Roma. Also played some wonderful through balls to Cavani and other team-mates.
Invisible in the first-half, he found more opportunities in the second and was unlucky as Lobont denied him two great chances. His pressure on the defence led to an own goal in Napoli's favour.
Made at least three brilliant stops during the match to keep Roma in it. He even almost kept out the opener, his team-mates let him down. He put in a very good display.
Should have scored when he collected the ball in the area early in the contest, but shanked the ball wide. As always offered support down the left both in defensive and offensive terms.
Absolutely lit up by Lavezzi and tormented by Dossena time and time again. He did himself no favours of cementing a first-place team at right-back.
Impressed in the first-half in a midfield role, but his lack of match practice caught up with him in the second-half as he failed to have a consistent impact.
A few crucial interceptions, but he looked flat-footed in the second half as Napoli came forward.
Certainly not up to the level he played against Inter last weekend. The centre-back like his partner Juan appeared a step slower than the opponents.
A very sloppy match from the fiery Chilean. Too many misplaced passes and poor challenges. Another player who is not performing as he did last season for the Giallorossi.
D. De Rossi
Wonderful in the first-half, sitting in front of the defence and keeping his position perfectly. However, he failed to track back on Hamsik's goal and could not impose himself in the second 45.
Flop of the match. Was rarely in a position to get the ball and when he did it was often wasted. Removed at half-time.
He was the last to give up for the Giallorossi, but he simply was not invovled enough even if he pulled off a nice trick here and there. Roma need more from their captain.
Worked very hard to lead the line and Roma were worse when he was removed. The Napoli backline was just too good for him on this occasion.

- 2 G. Grava
Added a fresh pair of legs to help out the midfield and backline, replacing a tired Dossena.
Given a late run out.
Excellent after entering the pitch. Battled hard in midfield and was arguably his best performance for his new club.

- 32 Doni

The 23-year-old ran quite a bit after coming on, but overall needs a bit more refining. Still you can see his potential.
The Italian midfielder did not have the effect Ranieri was looking for, the match passed him by after his half-time entrance.
- 19 Júlio Baptista
Failed to take two opportunities in the area, often wanting too long on the ball when it came to him. Could not repeat his heroics from last week's clash with Inter.
