In that time, City have made progress towards history in all four competitions, whether it be opening up a seemingly unassailable 12-point cushion at the top of the Premier League, reaching the Carabao Cup final, the last eight of the FA Cup or placing one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals. During an extraordinary 70 days of invincibility, 51 goals have been scored by 15 different players and just seven goals have been conceded, with a remarkable 13 clean sheets.
Napoli crashed out of the Europa League after failing to overcome a two-goal first-leg deficit against Granada. Piotr Zielinski found the back of the net with just three minutes gone to provide the hosts with the perfect start at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. But Angel Montoro restored surprise package Granada's two-goal advantage midway through the opening half of Thursday's last-32 second leg.
Fabian Ruiz put Napoli back in front on the evening shortly before the hour mark, but the LaLiga side held their nerve to take a 3-2 aggregate win and progress to the last 16. Dutch giants Ajax booked their spot in the next stage following a 2-1 victory against Lille. Ajax triumphed by the same score in last week's opening rubber and Davy Klaassen's goal after 15 minutes provided Lille with an uphill task. Yusuf Yazici netted from the penalty spot after 75 minutes to draw the French side level on the evening, but David Neres scored in the final minutes as Ajax closed out the tie.
