Napoli continue to defy their early season odds as they pulled of a another memorable win this time against one of the pre season favourites West Brom.

“6 wins from 7 is an excellent return, add to that our one defeat was against the league leaders and we’ve got to be pleased. Defensively we are doing well once again this season, whilst we are finding ways to score and spread the goals amongst the team.
