Cologne - Following yet another match-winning display in midweek, bundesliga.com users were never going to deny Borussia Mönchengladbach winger Patrick Herrmann the Player of the Week gong for Matchday 19.

Just as he did in Stuttgart last weekend, the pacy 23-year-old scored the only goal of the game at home to SC Freiburg on Tuesday night to give the Foals their second successive 1-0 win of 2015.

De Bruyne takes silver


Herrmann was simply too hot to handle, eating up over 10 kilometres of turf and firing in three efforts on goal - including his decisive first-half strike. 51 per cent of the post-matchday vote was the very least he deserved after another electric display.

Matchday 18 winner Kevin De Bruyne also added to his Bayern-slaying brace, this time rescuing VfL Wolfsburg a 1-1 draw away to Eintracht Frankfurt. The Belgian international finished on 33 per cent, comfortably clear of Hamburger SV left-back Marcell Jansen, who had a say in all three of the port city club's goals in Wednesday's comfortable win at SC Paderborn 07.
