LONDON (AP) - Paolo Condo, Gazzetta dello Sport, Italy

“The beautiful football on Saturday (from Chelsea) was no surprise, and no surprise at all about Eden Hazard, a nice project for number one in the world for the next years.”

Chris Tait, The Herald, Scotland

“Eden Hazard is so elusive on the pitch that he often escapes the sort of attention given to the likes of Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez. The Belgian’s hat trick for Chelsea is a good reminder that he is one of the best talents in Europe.”

James Porteous, South China Morning Post

“No surprises that Liverpool are my top team this week after their 20-minute destruction of Arsenal. I’ve gone for Eden Hazard as top player, his hat trick underlining the scintillating form he has been in for Chelsea.”

Tom Timmermann, St-Louis Post Dispatch, United States

Jose Mourinho thinks Eden Hazard is the best young player in the world, and there was no arguing that last week after his hat trick against Newcastle United.”

Tito Puccetti, ESPN, Argentina

“It only took just 20 minutes (for Liverpool) to finish off Arsenal without the need for their leading scorer Luis Suarez.”

Leonardo Bertozzi, ESPN, Brazil

“The colchonero (Atletico Madrid) stumble at the weekend allowed Real Madrid to achieve league leadership under (Carlo) Ancelotti.”

Marco Monteverde, News Corp Australia

“Liverpool’s 5-1 demolition of Arsenal is perhaps the biggest statement made by the Reds in their renaissance as a Premier League force.”
