Five reasons why Gladbach are flying under Schubert

After losing their opening five games of the season, Borussia Mönchengladbach are unbeaten since Andre Schubert's arrival as coach.

1) Consistent team selection

Fears of a potential relegation fight have quickly been dismissed, and the Foals are now ready to launch another assault on the UEFA Champions League places.

2) Stindl reborn

After the departures of Max Kruse and Christoph Kramer last summer, Lucien Favre was left with a significant rebuilding job on his hands for 2015/16. As Gladbach's difficult start to the season developed, it was clear that Favre was still wrestling with what his strongest XI was. Injuries did not help, but a whole host of players such as Thorgan Hazard, Andre Hahn, Patrick Herrmann and Lars Stindl found themselves shifted between the bench and the starting line-up, and even then having to play in a variety of positions. Once Schubert took control, the preferred line-up became more recognisable, if not entirely rigid. Gladbach's key players are now keenly aware of their role under the new boss.
