Thomas Kessler (1. FC Köln) - Making only his eighth Bundesliga appearance in a Köln shirt, Kessler excelled in the absence of injured first-choice goalkeeper Timo Horn in the Rhine derby. The 30-year-old made three saves of the highest order to deny Borussia Mönchengladbach trio Thorgan Hazard, Oscar Wendt and Fabian Johnson as Köln come from behind to seal a last-gasp 2-1 win at the BORUSSIA-PARK.

Anthony Modeste (1. FC Köln) - There was a touch of good fortune about Köln's equaliser in Gladbach as Jannik Vestergaard's attempted clearance cannoned into the back of the net off Modeste, but the physical Frenchman deserves credit for being in the right place at the right time. He has now scored two thirds of the Billy Goats' Bundesliga goals this season - 12 in total.

Moritz Hartmann (FC Ingolstadt 04) - It was always going to take something special for Ingolstadt to break the winless cycle, and that is exactly what Hartmann provided on Matchday 11. The 30-year-old showed great technique to send a stunning 18-yard volley beyond the reach of SV Darmstadt 98 goalkeeper Michael Esser as Die Schanzer picked up their first win of the season on new head coach Maik Walpurgis' debut.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) - Modeste is in good company at the top of the Bundesliga and European scoring charts after Aubameyang's instinctive finish against Bayern brought up the Gabon international's 12th Bundesliga goal of the campaign and fifth in his last two outings. The 27-year-old ran the defending champions ragged at times and would have had a second but for a fine Manuel Neuer save in the second half.
