This shows in almost every game, and it did against Saint-Etienne, where he scored three goals." ___ Chris Tait, The Herald, Scotland "It has taken just three league matches for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to register his first hat trick of the campaign. Dare to Zlatan." ___ Cedric Rouquette, Eurosport, France "Beating Real Madrid is certainly a performance itself. But doing it after a 0-2 lead by the superstar team shows a huge consistency (from Real Sociedad)." ___ Sam Tighe, Bleacher Report, England "Diego Costa's brace at Goodison Park brought his goal tally to four after just three matches, and the Spaniard is well on the way to dispelling any murmurs that he could be the Premier League's next big flop. Power, pace, guile and calmness in front of goal." ___ Tito Puccetti, ESPN, Argentina "Jackson Martinez exceeded 100 goals scored away from Colombia. He scored two goals during the week to qualify his team (FC Porto) for the UEFA Champions League." ___ Marco Monteverde, News Corp.

There's one team that's playing like a champion though: Chelsea." ___ Aurelio Capaldi, RAI Sport, Italy "Chelsea's 6-3 victory over Everton at Goodison Park allowed the Blues to maintain their perfect start of the season. Chelsea made it three wins out of three and in Diego Costa they found the striker they needed to get what they want." ___ Julian Bennetts, Hayters news agency, England "What a night of drama in the Champions League, and what a result for Ludogrets as they knocked out Steaua Bucharest and were rewarded with a group stage draw against Real Madrid and Liverpool."
