Goalkeeper

Rune Jarstein (Hertha Berlin) - Hertha had 12 shots on goal compared to Borussia Mönchengladbach's 11 when the sides met in the Matchday 10 opener, and the fact the hosts won 3-0 says a lot about Jarstein's importance between the posts. Not only did he pull off a spectacular save to keep the Foals out, his handling and dominance of his penalty area exuded a confidence that spread to the rest of his team-mates.

Rune Jarstein helped Hertha keep a fourth clean sheet of the campaign at home to Gladbach.

Defenders

Mitchell Weiser (Hertha Berlin) - The right-sided specialist had another excellent game against Gladbach. Not only did he help keep out the Foals' notoriously tricky wingers, he was a menace himself getting forward and provided the assists for two of his side's goals.

Mats Hummels (FC Bayern München) - The Germany international was his usual composed self at the heart of Bayern's defence against Hoffenheim, winning 78 per cent of all his duels, completing 86 per cent of his passes and even hitting the post late on as the Bundesliga leaders pushed for a winner.

Ricardo Rodriguez (VfL Wolfsburg) - The Swiss defender has proven his worth to Wolfsburg in recent weeks by playing out of position at centre-back. Not only was he a solid presence there once more on the Wolves' 3-0 win in Freiburg, he also scored one and created another to help the visitors register their first Bundesliga win since Matchday 1.

Ricardo Rodriguez (l.) put the seal on Wolfsburg's win away to Freiburg with his second Bundesliga goal of the season.

Midfielders

Emil Forsberg (RB Leipzig) - The 1. FSV Mainz 05 defenders are likely to have nightmares about Forsberg for a while after the Swedish attacker's ruthless display in Leipzig's 3-1 win on Sunday. His pace and tireless running caused countless problems, and the 25-year-old was rewarded with a goal and two assists as Leipzig moved level on points with leaders Bayern.

Kerem Demirbay (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim) - Not many players can say they have scored past Bayern's Manuel Neuer with a strike from the edge of the area, and even fewer can have done so with the kind of nonchalence Demirbay exhibited in putting Hoffenheim 1-0 up in Munich. The 23-year-old also worked hard throughout the 1-1 draw, covering more ground (12.72 kilometres) than any other player on the pitch.

Alessandro Schöpf (FC Schalke 04) - The Austrian winger was everywhere for Schalke in their 3-0 win over SV Werder Bremen. He had five attempts on goal during the 90 minutes, scoring twice. Schöpf also covered more distance than anyone else on the pitch (13.33 km), completed the most intense runs (108) and sent in the most crosses (8).

Salomon Kalou (Hertha Berlin) - Making just his third Bundesliga appearance of the season, the Ivorian was in clinical mood against Gladbach: he only had three shots on goal throughout the game but scored with each one.

Forwards

Timo Werner (RB Leipzig) - The Germany U21 international almost single-handedly led RB Leipzig to a 3-1 win over Mainz. Two goals and an assist in a relentless first 45 minutes from the 20-year-old were enough to secure the points for the promoted side and see them move to joint-first in the table.

Watch: Werner talks about his side's impressive start to the season.

Mario Gomez (VfL Wolfsburg) - The 31-year-old has started to recover the form that has seen him reach 15th place on the all-time Bundesliga scoring chart. He was too hot to handle for SC Freiburg as he scored two goals in the 3-0 win to reach 141 Bundesliga goals as he prepares to return to the Germany squad over the international break.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) - Not much needs to be said about Aubameyang’s performance. Four goals and an assist for the Gabon international as Dortmund handsomely beat Hamburger SV 5-2. The 27-year-old completed his hat-trick within the first 30 minutes of the game and is now level with 1. FC Köln’s Anthony Modeste as the top scorer in Germany - and indeed any of Europe's major leagues - on 11.

Watch: Aubameyang expresses his delight with his four goals against Hamburg.
