Goalkeeper: Ralf Fährmann, Schalke 04
Very calm throughout the match and made a number of saves to make sure Schalke kept a clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Mainz.
Right-back: Joshua Kimmich, Bayern München
Did well to take part in Bayern's offensive play and got his 15th assist for Bayern in all competitions as he set up Robert Lewandowski for the 2-0 goal.
Centre-back: Benjamin Pavard, VfB Stuttgart
The young Frenchman was once again highly impressive and played a big part for Stuttgart as the RB Leipzig offense was kept relatively quiet.
Centre-back: Milos Veljkovic, Werder Bremen
Not only did Veljkovic score he goal in the 3-1 win over FC Köln - he also looked solid defensively and was good at bringing the ball forward from the defense.
Left-back: Nico Schulz, Hoffenheim
Never stopped running on Hoffenheim's left side and got the opening goal in the win over Wolfsburg. Won 77 percent of his duels and found a teammate with 88 percent of his passes.
Right midfielder: Daniel Caligiuri, Schalke 04
Very active on the right-hand side and scored Schalke's winner after a great individual effort.
Central midfielder: Florian Grillitsch, Hoffenheim
Very safe on the ball. Had a foot in Hoffenheim's first goal as his shot was parried into the feet of goalscorer Nico Schulz.
Central midfielder: Suar Serdar, Mainz
Mainz lost against Schalke 04, but Suat Serdar certainly did what he could to change that. The young box-to-box midfielder was once again among Mainz' best players, and he tested Schalke keeper Ralf Fährmann several times throughout the match.
Left midfielder: Franck Ribery, Bayern München
The poor Hamburger SV defense couldn't control the French veteran who netted twice in Bayern's 6-0 win. Ribeyr's second goal was particularly good - the Frenchman dribbled past four opponents before he placed the ball safely into the net.
Striker: Robert Lewandowski, Bayern München
Scored his 100th Bundesliga goal for Bayern München as he netted a hattrick in the 6-0 win over Hamburger SV.
Striker: Michael Gregoritsch, FC Augsburg
The Austrian forward has been a huge success since joining from Hamburger SV last summer, and he was on hand again with two goals against Hannover 96.
