However, since the new season has started, Hernandez has been Bayern coach Hansi Flick's preferred option at left-back.
"Lucas Hernandez has put in very stable performances and is playing at a very good level. He does us good with his aggressiveness," Flick said after Saturday's 4-1 win over Arminia Bielefeld, in which Davies came on to replace Hernandez with just a few minutes left to play.
"For a young player like Alphonso Davies, it's not easy due to the many games last season and the short pre-season. It's important that he gets back on track and can bring his strengths back into play. But to do so, he needs a certain fitness and mental freshness," said Flick.
