Goran Pandev bagged a brace as Napoli went back to the top of Serie A with a 2-0 win at Genoa.
Pandev's first goals of the season came inside the opening 25 minutes to ensure Rafael Benitez's side bounced back from their shock 1-1 midweek draw with newly-promoted Sassuolo.
Mario Balotelli missed a penalty for the first time in his professional career as Napoli recorded their first victory over AC MIlan at the San Siro in 27 years.
Balotelli was sent off after the game for dissent just moments after grabbing a late consolation for Milan.
The 2-1 win maintains Napoli's 100% record in Serie A and will do wonders for the confidence of on-loan Liverpool goalkeeper, Pepe Reina.
Andrea Dossena has moved to Sunderland from Napoli, with the Italian defender agreeing a one-year deal with the club.
Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has been hospitalized for a cut to his head, after injuring himself diving off a boat in Capri, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
It is thought the Argentine's injuries aren't serious and he received stitches to his wound.
Rafael Benitez is looking to continue his Italian revolution by signing John Obi Mikel from Chelsea, according to Football Italia.
Benitez is hopeful of tying up a season long loan deal for Mikel, who holds an English passport and wouldn't need to be named as one of Napoli's non-EU players.
Mikel joined Chelsea in 2006 and has made over 250 appearances for the Blues.
