"Ronaldo and Lacazette both scored phenomenal hat tricks this weekend, but it was perhaps the latter's that was most impressive. Going up against a tough Lille defense usually yields zero goals for strikers, but the Frenchman bagged three."

Aurelio Capaldi, RAI Sport, Italy

"Chelsea deserve the top spot as they beat Arsenal and confirmed they have the quality, the organization and the maturity to be successful. Arsene Wenger lost twice against Jose Mourinho: On the field where Chelsea were better in every aspect of the game, and on the bench when the Arsenal manager pushed Mourinho, who keeps beating him."

Mike McGrath, The Sun, England

"Chelsea's win against Arsenal was convincing. It will take something special to deny them the Premier League and they could have beaten Sporting Lisbon by more in the Champions League."

Leonardo Bertozzi, ESPN, Brazil

"Angel Di Maria has arrived at Manchester United, and it is critical. Another gala performance, this time against Everton."

Cedric Rouquette, Eurosport, France

"David De Gea was a crucial help for Manchester United in their win against Everton. Without him, Louis van Gaal's team would still struggle for some credit."

Marco Monteverde, News Corp Australia

"Who can stop Jose Mourinho's men? Chelsea again looked the goods in the Premier League and also recorded a crucial away win in the Champions League."

Tom Timmermann, St. Louis Post Dispatch, United States

"Ronaldo's hat trick against Athletic Bilbao might have got him the top spot anyway, but his Champions League goal sealed the deal."

Tito Puccetti, ESPN, Argentina

"Despite losing to Juventus, Roma, led by Francesco Toti, starred in one of the best games of the weekend in Europe."

Chris Tait, The Herald, Scotland

"Reading the Real Madrid team sheet is perhaps best done in front of witnesses. Many of the names have become so big they would likely have little problem relieving you of your wallet, having already stolen the attention with another comprehensive victory at the weekend."

Paolo Condo, Gazzetta dello Sport, Italy

"Ronaldo is a scoring monster. His easiness in finding the goal is the proof that Carlo Ancelotti once again has found the correct balance of the team."

James Porteous, South China Morning Post, Hong Kong

"Player of the week has to go to Ronaldo again, scoring at a frankly ridiculous rate."

Manos Staramopoulos, Dimokratia, Greece

"Chelsea remained five points clear of Manchester City (after beating Arsenal 2-0), while Mourinho maintained his unbeaten form towards Wenger, 12 games without defeat."
