Rune Jarstein (Hertha Berlin) – The Hertha goalkeeper played a big part in his side rescuing a draw against Borussia Dortmund at the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK. The Norwegian may have missed out on a fifth clean sheet this season, but he made five key saves, and also denied Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the penalty spot.

Andreas Christensen (Borussia Mönchengladbach) – The talented young Danish defender didn't have the busiest afternoon at BORUSSIA-PARK, as Hamburger SV were reduced to 10 men on 25 minutes, but he remained focused throughout and prevented the visitors from surprising Gladbach on the counter-attack in a 0-0 draw.

Mats Hummels (FC Bayern München) – Centre-back Hummels had a hand in both of Bayern's goals in their 2-2 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt at the Commerzbank Arena. The German international set David Alaba away with a lovely through ball for Arjen Robben's opener, before teeing up Joshua Kimmich in the second half.   

Bernardo (RB Leipzig) – The 21-year-old Brazilian was a useful outlet down the right flank for Leipzig as they continued their remarkable start to life in the Bundesliga, with a 1-0 win over VfL Wolfsburg. He also helped the promoted side keep their third clean sheet of the season.


Ousmane Dembele (Borussia Dortmund) – The 19-year-old French sensation only played 30 minutes for Dortmund in their draw with Hertha, but changed the game with his pace and trickery. He set up Aubameyang's late equaliser in style, to at least rescue a point for BVB.

Nabil Bentaleb (FC Schalke 04) – The Algerian international scored one of the goals of the weekend in Schalke's 1-1 draw with FC Augsburg – a stunning top-corner effort that goalkeeper Marwin Hitz had absolutely no chance of keeping out.

Marco Fabian (Eintracht Frankfurt) – Mexican international Fabian rescued a point for Frankfurt at home to Bayern, with his third goal of the Bundesliga season. All the more impressive given that the Eagles had been reduced to 10 men earlier in the game.

Zlatko Junuzovic (SV Werder Bremen) – Junuzovic grabbed a 13th-minute opener for Bremen as they saw off Bayer 04 Leverkusen to make it three games unbeaten. The Austrian was impressive throughout, harrying Leverkusen in midfield and always looking to get the ball forward.

Ousman Manneh (SV Werder Bremen) – It was a historic weekend for the 19-year-old, who arrived in Germany as a refugee two years ago. He became the first Gambian to score in the Bundesliga in the win over Leverkusen, and was also involved in Junuzovic's opening goal.

Sandro Wagner (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim) – Wagner made the most of some inattentive defending from SC Freiburg's Caglar Söyüncü to give Hoffenheim the lead in the Baden-Württemberg derby, with his third goal in six Bundesliga outings. A constant nuisance, the 28-year-old helped his side make it three league wins on the bounce.

Anthony Modeste (1. FC Köln) – The Frenchman is into the Team of the Week for the second successive Matchday after his heroics against FC Ingolstadt 04. Modeste grabbed both goals in a 2-1 win for Köln, who are flying high in second, and he's now the Bundesliga's top scorer with seven in seven.
