Napoli executive Cristiano Giuntoli admitted his side is extremely motivated for tonight’s league showdown against Roma in the Italian capital.

The first-placed Partenopei face Jose Mourinho’s side in a packed Stadio Olimpico tonight with their 15-match unbeaten run to start their season on the line.

“We have a lot of matches in the next few weeks. We’ve got to take things one game at a time but we’re very motivated to win,” Giuntoli told DAZN.

“Ndombele? I don’t want to discuss individual players given how well the team is doing and how we’re doing everything right.”

“Mourinho? Again, I don’t want to talk about individuals, including the opponents. We’re focused on ourselves and that’s it.”
