Question: Thomas Müller, you scored the winning goal against Gladbach on your 250th Bundesliga appearance. It must have been the perfect day for you… 

Thomas Müller: It feels great - we won and of course I'm happy to have scored again. It was an intense game, and I was pretty knackered for a Sunday evening. Other people have already got their feet up by now.

Question: What did you make of your goal?

Müller: I didn't really have the ball under control because it was between my legs, but I had time and anticipated that Yann Sommer would pick a corner. Fortunately, that's what he did. I could definitely have got my shot away quicker, but it worked out really well.

Question: Does your goal give you momentum again - for the national team, too... 

Müller: Perhaps the international break has come at a good time. Then league has time to get over the shock of me scoring again (laughs).

Question: Bayern are now 13 points clear of RB Leipzig at the top the table. You'd have to lose three or four games to surrender the title…

Müller: We're not thinking about that. It's about wanting to maintain our winning run and keep our flow going. We're all a bit addicted to winning. We always want to be better than the opposition. We were against Gladbach and that gives us confidence. But we're not going to take anything for granted and ease off.

Question: Arjen Robben looked very unhappy after being substituted late on. What did you make of his reaction?

Müller: There was a passage of play where he was in a good position in the box, but Lewy [Robert Lewandowski] didn't play the ball to him. We all want to maximise our success and we're all human. It's better if someone's totally fired up rather than being indifferent. That's exactly what sets us apart: People who have won a lot of titles, but still get upset when they're only winning 1-0. It's exactly what we need.
