The Germany Under-19 international garnered 48 per cent of the bundesliga.com users' votes after following up his fourth league goal of the season with an incisive run and assist in Saturday's 2-1 win at home to Borussia Dortmund.
Battle of the goalscorers
A first goal of the season brought FC Bayern München stand-in skipper Bastian Schweinsteiger to within two per cent of Bremen's matchwinner. As well as grabbing the equaliser with a wonderfully measured free kick in a hard-earned 2-1 win at 1. FSV Mainz 05, the 30-year-old midfielder made his side tick like only he knows how, completing 87 per cent of his 100 attempted passes.
VfL Wolfsburg centre-back Naldo was a distant third on six per cent, meanwhile, despite powering home a trademark header for the second week running in Saturday's 2-1 victory against 1. FC Köln.
