Goalkeeper: Rene Adler, Mainz
Made seven saves in total against FC Köln - including an impressive reflex save to keep out a header from Claudio Pizarro towards the end of the match.
Right-back: Joshua Kimmich, Bayern München
Solid defensively and as always very involved in Bayern's offensive play. Got his 17th assist in all competitions as he set up Corentin Tolisso's 1-1 equaliser.
Centre-back: Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Borussia Dortmund
Rock solid in the centre of the Dortmund defense that kept Daniel Ginczek and Mario Gomez fairly quiet.
Centre-back: Paul Jaeckel, Wolfsburg
The 19-year-old did very well alongside Robin Knoche in his Bundesliga debut as Wolfsburg won 2-0 against Freiburg who hardly created anything.
Left-back: Jonas Hector, FC Köln
The Köln skipper's importance for his team can't be underestimated. Combined very well with Leonardo Bittencourt on the left side and scored the opener with a great header. The most active Köln player on the pitch as he ran 11,5 kilometers during the match.
Right midfielder: Arjen Robben, Bayern München
Always threatening on Bayern's right win and got himself a nice goal as he smashed the ball into the net to make it 3-1 in the 4-1 win over Augsburg.
Central midfielder: Nuri Sahin, Borussia Dortmund
Was handed a rare start in Dortmund's midfield and didn't disappoint. He was very safe and clever on the ball and set up Michy Batshuayi for the second goal.
Central midfielder: Daniel Didavi, Wolfsburg
Scored twice as Wolfsburg defeated Freiburg 2-0. The midfielder made it 1-0 with a nice shot from distance after a few minutes and scored again in the second half to cement the victory.
Left midfielder: Julian Brandt, Bayer Leverkusen
Uncontrollable for the RB Leipzig defense in Leverkusen's 4-1 win. Got on the scoresheet once and also set up Kevin Volland's 4-1 goal.
Striker: Thorgan Hazard, Borussia Mönchengladbach
Made the difference after he was substituted on the pitch at half-time when Gladbach were down 0-1 against Hertha. Hazard scored twice and helped Gladbach turn the game around and secure a 2-1 win.
Striker: Aaron Hunt, Hamburger SV
Impressed in an unaccustomed role as striker and scored a screamer from distance to earn Hamburger SV an important 3-2 win over Schalke 04.
