Axel Torres, Marca Radio, Spain ''Luis Suarez scored an amazing hat trick against West Brom. His `solo-effort' was wonderful, but his two headed-goals even were more important to show that he is developing into a world-class one-touch finisher, which he never was before.'' --- Leonardo Bertozzi, ESPN Brazil ''Suarez attempting to move to Arsenal already seems a distant memory. The hat trick against West Bromwich Albion took the Uruguayan to six goals in just four games into the season in the Premier League.'' --- Federico Giammaria, La Voz, Argentina ''For Neymar, this was the match to prove he is one of the best in the world, right in front of (Gareth) Bale. He did not fail, it was a tremendous performance.'' --- Mark Rodden, Paris-based Irish football writer ''Chelsea are very much back on course in the Champions League after an easy win in Germany and they also managed to beat a title rival in the Premier League. They are now unbeaten in 65 Premier League home games under Jose Mourinho.'' --- Mike McGrath, The Sun and Wardles news agency ''Borussia Dortmund are the team that have impressed me most in the last week, particularly by going to the Emirates Stadium and beating Arsenal. But Luis Suarez is the individual that is having the biggest impact on football at the moment. His hat trick against West Brom was stunning.'' --- Richard Jolly, ESPN ''Alexis Sanchez tends to be overshadowed by Barcelona's other South Americans, Lionel Messi and Neymar, but on Saturday he scored the goal that condemned Real Madrid to defeat at the Camp Nou. It was the most crucial contribution the Chilean has made for Barca.'' --- Marco Monteverde, football writer for News Corp. Australia ''Dortmund not only got the better of an in-form Arsenal side in London in the Champions League, they backed it up a few days later in the Bundesliga with a great away win over Schalke. That's a great week's work.'' --- Sam Tighe, Bleacher Report ''Henrikh Mkhitaryan took the Reviere-derby by the scruff of the neck and carried Borussia Dortmund to victory by exploiting Schalke's glaring weaknesses for the second week in a row.'' --- Richard Winton, The Herald, Scotland ''Granted, the season is only 10 games old but do Atletico Madrid offer a genuine threat to the Barca-Real duopoly in Spain?'' --- Tom Timmermann, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, United States ''Four goals in a Champions League match? (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic made the top spot on my ballot one of the easiest to fill in I've had. Barca vs. Real Madrid is practically a Champions League match, so Neymar's hand in two goals there deserves acknowledgement.'' --- Orfeo Suarez, El Mundo, Spain ''Great from Ibrahimovic, with four goals in the Champions League. The Sweden striker is in his best form. Also, (Fernando) Torres of Chelsea is in the best form since arriving in London. The style of Mourinho is fine for his characteristics.'' --- Alejandro Cisternas, El Mercurio, Chile ''Roma is the team of the season in Europe, undefeated despite not being a candidate before the start of the campaign and having a new manager. The same for Liverpool, a team that is starting to dream of that league title after almost a quarter of a century.''
