Oliver Baumann (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim) – The Sinsheim club’s custodian helped ensure his side preserved their unbeaten record with a dominant display in the 0-0 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt. He twice denied Alex Meier in one-on-one situations, dealt with 15 shots on his goal and ensured that an aerial assault from the Eagles totalling 11 corners and 18 crosses was all in vain.

Midfielders

Vincenzo Grifo (SC Freiburg) - The Germany-born Italy Under 20 cap was a busy presence in his side’s 1-0 win over Darmstadt, running a match-leading 11.96km and using his pace well with 82 fast runs to help in his side’s steady progress up the table.

Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund) - Called “irreplaceable” by coach Thomas Tuchel after he had secured a point with a last-minute equaliser, Reus is back to his best after his injury lay-off. With teammate Aubameyang having a quiet day in front of goal, Reus stepped into the breach with three shots on target as well as 33 sprints.

Nicolai Müller (Hamburger SV) - It was Müller’s incisive, weaving run to the edge of the box climaxing with a shot that struck the post that gave Filip Kostic the chance to grab the winning goal against FC Augsburg. It was just reward for the 29-year-old after an energetic display where he led the way with 33 sprints and 82 fast runs. 

Arjen Robben (FC Bayern München) - A trademark curling shot from the edge of the box by Robben gave Bayern the lead over VfL Wolfsburg in spectacular style, and another attempt from the Dutchman later was diverted into the net by Thomas Müller. Robben is in prime form, with five goals from nine Bundesliga outings so far.

Forwards

Thomas Müller (FC Bayern München) - A goal drought lasting 999 minutes came to an end when Müller found the net with the fourth goal in Bayern’s 5-0 rout of Wolfsburg. Joy and relief were written all over his face, and for good measure Müller also made his fifth assist of the season when setting up Robert Lewandowski.

Robert Lewandowski (FC Bayern München) - The Polish striker must circle the meetings with Wolfsburg on his calendar when the fixtures are announced, making it 12 goals in 12 appearances against the Wolves in Bayern’s demolition job at the Allianz Arena. He was at his predatory best for his 10th and 11th strikes of the season, and must be relishing the return fixture on Matchday 31.

Max Kruse (SV Werder Bremen) - The striker was smart enough to latch on to a mistake by Berlin’s Niklas Stark to notch what turned out to be the decisive goal in the Olympiastadion. It was Kruse’s second in as many games and the 28-year-old has played a big part in two consecutive wins that have nudged Bremen away from the relegation zone.

Watch: Lewandowski and Müller's delight at Bayern returning to the top of the Bundesliga.
