It was the Croatian's second goal in the competition for the club he joined on a season-long loan from Everton in the summer.
Vlasic seized on a bad pass by Toni Kroos in only the second minute to advance and fire past Keylor Navas and the home side held out for the remainder of the game to go top of Group G.

Miles better than Davies or Schneiderlin yet they are still regulars doing what exactly?
Same with the blatant exclusion over Lookman who showed tonight again that given the amount of games that other waster DCL has had he would have done far more.

We are supposed to be convincing him to stay yet take him off when he was growing into our most dangerous player tonight; makes perfect sense, that, eh?
Silva botched up tonight.

Jim I agree with you here too over Lookman, he was the standout player on the first half, always positive, always breaking through the lines trying to sneak in behind.
It was a huge error by Silva to remove him from the pitch. In fact, one of only 2 players ahead of the keeper and defence who quite simply couldn't be replaced (the other being Bernard).

And I agree — he is ahead of Davies and Calvert-Lewin for sure already.
Lookman should go out on loan if we are not going to play him much.

I also reckon Lookman needs a few chances as it seems people have written him off as having a bad attitude on little evidence or hearsay as he hasn't said anything. If going off effort on the pitch then a number of our players could be classed in the same way!
He looks like the kind of player who needs nurturing to mature into a match winner as he's got the attributes. I do hope he takes his chances when they come!

We really shouldn't have to rely on Italian teams to cheer us up, should we?

Every player is fast, strong can play football and make the right decisions at a fast pace, the one- and two-touch football between the lines is brilliant to watch.
The way Napoli flow as team through the middle down the channels and from the back is great; the only thing they were lacking was a cutting edge up top!
I only hope that Silva can implement that style to our team and is allowed to buy the players good enough to do so.

He will return a better player; it's a pity Calvert-Lewin and Davies were not given similar opportunities.
