“Manchester City made off with the first silverware of the season and promptly set their sights on a quadruple. When they score goals as good as those Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri struck against Sunderland, anything seems possible.”

Chris Tait, The Herald, Scotland

“Bayern Munich were so dominant against FC Schalke that their match was over by halftime. That gave Arjen Robben plenty of time to complete his hat trick after the break.”

Marco Monteverde, News Corp Australia

“Carlo Ancelotti’s men were magnificent in thrashing Schalke 6-1 away from home in the Champions League before grabbing a vital equalizer in the Madrid derby to stay in front in the battle for La Liga.”

“Juventus are closer to their third Italian Serie A title in a row after beating AC Milan at the San Siro. It was impressive the way Carlos Tevez played this game: he was everywhere, showing a real fighting spirit, working hard for the team and scoring an amazing goal.”

Tom Timmermann, St. Louis Post Dispatch, United States

“Bayern and Real both showed they are head and shoulders above the field, even if Real could only get a tie in its derby with Atletico Madrid.”

James Porteous, South China Morning Post

“There were hat tricks for Andre Schuerrle for Chelsea, Salomon Kalou for Lille and Arjen Robben for Bayern, but I think I’ll pick Luis Suarez for player of the week because of his eye catching return to goalscoring form with his 100th Premier League goal.”

Mark Rodden, Eurosport, France

“Ronaldo delivered in the big game, rifling home an equalizer that keeps Real Madrid top of the pile in Spain. It was goal number 45 for club and country this season.”

Tito Puccetti, ESPN, Argentina

“The Manchester City engineer Pellegrini shows that not only South American players are able to succeed in Europe, but also the organization and leadership of this part of the world may be imposed at the highest level.”
