LONDON (AP) — Quotes from voters in this week’s Associated Press Global Football 10

___

Francois Colin, De Standaard, Belgium

“Bayern Munich is superior in the Bundesliga (and) brilliant in the Champions League. The best team in Europe at this moment.”

___

Umaid Wasim, Dawn Newspaper, Pakistan

“The Bayern Munich bandwagon is back to its blistering best. A scintillating show against Arsenal followed up by a clinical thrashing of Stuttgart. For a team like that, failure to win the treble - as Pep Guardiola says - should really be unacceptable.”

___

Jonathan Johnson, beIN Sports USA, France

“Alexandre Lacazette picked the perfect game to rediscover last season’s prolific form. The France international scored all three goals as Lyon beat Rhone-Alpes rivals Saint-Etienne 3-0 in the last ever derby at Stade Gerland.”

___

Mike McGrath, The Sun, England

“Neymar’s goal at the weekend was as eye-catching as his new haircut. But the team of the week has to be Bayern for their demolition of Arsenal.”

___

Manos Staramopoulos, Dimocratia, Greece

“The Greek champion Olympiakos, by beating Heracles 2-0, reached 10 wins in respective games without presenting great football.”

__

Tom Timmermann, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, United States

“Neymar and (Thomas) Mueller both had big games in both league play and the Champions League, which is almost as tough as taking part in two high-level matches in the span of a few days.”

___

Tito Puccetti, ESPN Argentina

“Yevhen Konoplyanka spearheaded Sevilla and shook up Real Madrid.”

___

Ubiratan Leal, trivela.com, Brazil

“The Brazilian Neymar is pairing with Luis Suarez to fill Lionel Messi’s absence in Barcelona, making a strong case for both South Americans as this year’s ‘third way’ (i.e., the world’s best player after Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo).”

___

Marco Monteverde, News Corp. Australia

“Talk about bouncing back in style. Bayern Munich gained significant Champions League revenge on Arsenal before continuing on their merry way in the Bundesliga.”

___

Aurelio Capaldi, RAI Sport, Italy

“Neymar’s magic goals caught the eye, but I think Douglas Costa is proving one of the best signings across the world. Bayern (Munich) got it right to trust him and he’s making things happen brilliantly in a team with a 100 percent home record.”

___

Peter auf der Hyde, author and lecturer at Southampton Solent University

“Jamie Vardy continues his excellent scoring run and helps Leicester to third place in the table. A remarkable turnaround for a striker who last season went 21 games without scoring.”
