Table-topping Napoli continued their fine form with a 4-1 win over Lazio on Wednesday night, thanks largely to a whirlwind of second-half goals.

Trailing 1-0 from the 29th minute, the away side then raced into the lead with a flurry of goals after the break – three in five minutes from Kalidou Koulibaly (54′), Jose Callejon (56′) and this absolute beauty from Dries Mertens (59′)…

Having been forced wide by Lazio ‘keeper Thomas Strakosha, the Belgian took a glance over his shoulder and sent an inch-perfect lob over three players and into the far top corner from a difficult angle.

Jorginho then added a 92nd-minute penalty to complete the rout and keep the Partenopei above Juventus at the top of the league on goal difference.

Could this finally be Napoli’s year? They’ve certainly started like they bloody well mean it.
