LONDON (AP) — Quotes from voters in this week's AP global football poll:
Tom Timmermann, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, United States "This week is a good sign of how hard it is to play in the Champions League during the week and then a domestic league match on the weekend. Arsenal gets a big win over Napoli, and follows it with a tie with West Bromwich Albion."
Aurelio Capaldi, RAI Sport, Italy "Atletico seem to have the strong personality of Diego Simeone, the man chosen to make things happen. Villa got injured, but Diego Costa just can't stop scoring and Del Bosque decided to select him for the Spanish national squad. Well deserved."
Marco Monteverde, News Corp, Australia "Jose Mourinho's Chelsea regained their Champions League mojo in grand style in Romania and backed it up a few days later with another away win in the Premier League."
Mark Rodden, Paris-based Irish football writer "Paris Saint-Germain routed last year's Europa League finalists in the Champions League and beat a title rival away from home despite playing with 10 men for an hour. As well as skill, Laurent Blanc's side are showing plenty of character."
Sam Tighe, Bleacher Report, United States "Hamburg were rampant in their 5-0 victory over Nurnberg this weekend, with Pierre Michel Lasogga putting in the performance of his life. He scored a ridiculous seven-minute hat trick, with his third goal a pearler from distance after dispossessing a midfielder with ease."
Richard Jolly, ESPN "For one Spanish club to have a 100 percent record in both La Liga and the Champions League in October would be surprising. For two to possess perfect records is truly remarkable. Anything Barcelona do, Atletico Madrid emulate and vice versa."
Paolo Condo, Gazzetta dello Sport, Italy "Bayern Munich won against Manchester City in the Champions. They won easily, giving an impressive show of ball control: Guardiola's lesson is on the way, and the fact that great players full of honors accept it is a big tribute to the manager's charisma."
Orfeo Gonzalez, El Mundo, Spain "Atletico Madrid is improving and improving, with Diego Costa on top of the forwards with 10 goals in La Liga, more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo." Axel Torres, Marca Radio, Spain
"Totti's first goal at Giuseppe Meazza was key to the game. It was the classic goal he used to score when he was the best player in the Serie A. Even Prandelli has said he will pick him for the World Cup if he keeps his momentum."
James Thorogood, Bundesliga.com, Germany "Not only did Bayern Munich make Manchester City look average in their resounding 3-0 away win in the Champions League, but they moved top of the Bundesliga for the first time this season despite a 1-1 draw on the road against Bayer Leverkusen."
Mike McGrath, The Sun and Wardles news agency "Bayern's performance at the Etihad Stadium had so much pace and power, it sent shockwaves through the Champions League. One Manchester City player said it was like they had another man on the pitch."
Peter Linden, Kronen Zeitung, Austria "You can't ask for a better Premier League debut than Adnan Januzaj's two goals. He saved champion Manchester United at last-place Sunderland — and trainer David Moyes."
Julian Bennetts, Hayters news agency, England "Roma take top spot this week, simply for the style in which they dismantled Inter at San Siro. Rudi Garcia has created a brilliant, attacking team who could go all the way - although the smart money is still on either Roma or Napoli."
