Goalkeeper

Bernd Leno (Bayer 04 Leverkusen, 11 points) – Faced with the attacking might of Borussia Dortmund, you can expect a lot of shots on your goal, but Bernd Leno dealt with everything the Westphalians could throw at him, keeping an admirable clean sheet which included several key stops among the four he had to make.

Defenders

Christian Träsch (VfL Wolfsburg, 12) – There was simply no getting past Träsch for the 1. FSV Mainz 05 wingers with the German full-back winning duel after duel to boost his points' tally, with a clean sheet and a couple of shots thrown in for good measure.

Robin Knoche (VfL Wolfsburg, 14) – At the heart of the Wolfsburg defence, he won even more tackles (16 – the most of his team) as the Wolves kept their third clean sheet of the campaign.

Caglar Söyüncü (SC Freiburg, 12) – The 20-year-old Freiburg defender won an outstanding 92 per cent of his duels in another mature, solid performance.

Sead Kolasinac (FC Schalke 04, 14) – The assist for Schalke's second goal boosted his points, but he also won 14 challenges to help ensure a clean sheet.
