LONDON — Quotes from the panel in this week's Associated Press Global Football 10:
Manos Staramopoulos, Democratia, Greece
"The Argentine, Sergio Aguero, scored four (for Manchester City) against Tottenham. Four goals does not happen every day, no matter how good you are! The appearance of Aguero was amazing, worthy of his great class."
Mike McGrath, The Sun, England
"Sergio Aguero was far and away the best personal performer of the weekend, which propelled Manchester City, too."
Tito Puccetti, ESPN, Argentina
"Atletico Madrid's game does not shine, but they are better at the passing game in Europe. They are lethal in every corner."
Cedric Rouquette, Eurosport, France
"Winning easily against a team as poor as this Sunderland may not be a strong achievement (by Southampton). But an eight-goal margin is nevertheless so rare in great championships. It's the sign of a team on fire, as offensive as possible. And it's the signature of an incredible beginning of season."
Tom Timmermann, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, United States
"In a week that saw goals everywhere, Sergio Aguero's game for City against Tottenham stands out. And as rare as it may be to have a four-goal game, Dusan Tadic's four-assist game against Sunderland may be even rarer."
Marco Monteverde, News Corp, Australia
"Werder Bremen might be bottom of the Bundesliga, but Bayern Munich were as clinical as ever in their demolition of the cellar dwellers."
Ubiratan Leal, trivela.com, Brazil
"Sergio Aguero is not Lionel Messi, nor Cristiano Ronaldo, but he can be the key man in the Premier League. Chelsea display a more competitive football in England by now, but the Argentine has the talent to raise City's level. Saturday's game was an example of it."
Aurelio Capaldi, RAI Sport, Italy
"Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said, 'Having Cristiano Ronaldo is like starting every game 1-0 up,' and the Portuguese is proving him right. Ronaldo scored a double against Levante which means he has now got another record as nobody had ever scored 15 goals after eight La Liga games."
Sam Tighe, Bleacher Report, England
"Philipp Lahm was instrumental to Bayern Munich's 6-0 defeat of Werder Bremen this weekend and even notched two goals. After a week of Germany struggles in international football, his performance stood as a sour reminder of how much his presence is missed."
Chris Tait, The Herald, Scotland
"Conceding eight goals left Sunderland seeing stars, even though Southampton's big names left during the summer. Should they maintain their early form then this could be a famous season for the St. Mary's side."
