Borussia Mönchengladbach reclaimed the Bundesliga's top spot with a 4-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.

Nevertheless, Bayern München and Borussia Dortmund remain clear favourites to win the title this season, according to Gladbach's Denis Zakaria.

"The Bundesliga is incredibly strong, and Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are the clear favourites to vie for the title. But we have a good team, as we have proven time and time again, and we want to show that over the whole season," Zakaria said in an interview on Gladbach's website.

"To be honest, I don't give a lot of thought to our position at the top of the league. It just shows that we work hard. Nevertheless, it feels good, and we work every day to defend our position at the top. But we're just taking it one game at a time and trying to win each one. We'll see how we do at the end," the midfielder said.

Zakaria has played every minute since Marco Rose took over as Gladbach coach in the summer.
