Matchday 19 – team of the week (4-1-2-1-2 wide):
Goalkeeper: Timo Horn, 1. FC Köln
Made a string of great reflex saves to make sure FC Köln kept a clean sheet in the 2-0 win against Hamburger SV.
Right-back: Lars Bender, Bayer Leverkusen
Another fine performance by the versatile Leverkusen man who was behind an assist in the 4-1 victory against Hoffenheim.
Centre-back: Matthias Ginter, Borussia Mönchengladbach
Was a part of the Gladbach defense that kept a clean sheet and also scored from a corner in the 2-0 victory against Augsburg.
Centre-back: Jerome Boateng, FC Bayern München
Majestically assisted Thomas Müller's 1-1 equalizer with a long ball in Bayern's 4-2 win over Werder Bremen. With his calmness and experience, he was an important part of the Bayern defense that looked shaky at times.
Left-back: Jonas Hector, 1. FC Köln
After missing most of the first half of the season with an injury, the FC Köln captain has returned, and he has already made a big difference. Among the best Köln players in the 2-0 win against HSV.
Defensive midfielder: Julian Baumgartlinger, Bayer Leverkusen
An important physical presence for Leverkusen and won many balls in the centre of the park. The Austrian also got himself a rare goal, his first in a Leverkusen shirt, as he put the ball into the back of the net with a fine shot from distance.
Right midfielder: Marius Wolf, Eintracht Frankfurt
As always a threat on Frankfurt's right side and was behind two assists as 'Die Adler' defeated Wolfsburg 3-1.
Left midfielder: Leon Bailey, Bayer Leverkusen
Another stunning performance by the Jamaican who was all over Hoffenheim in Leverkusen's 4-1 win. He was behind the best goal of the round as he cleverly backheeled the ball past Oliver Baumann and also set up a goal.
Offensive midfielder: Thomas Müller, FC Bayern München
Arguably the best performance this season from the German goalgetter who netted twice and also got himself an assist. Combined very well with the impressive James Rodriguez whom he just edges for a spot in this team.
Striker: Simon Terodde, 1. FC Köln
The striker scored for the second week in a row as he netted both goals in FC Köln's vital 2-0 win over Hamburger SV. Terodde has just played two matches for Köln since his switch to the club from Stuttgart this month, but he is already the club's second most scoring player in the Bundesliga this season.
Striker: Robert Lewandowski, FC Bayern München
After missing out in the 3-1 win over Leverkusen, the Bundesliga topscorer looked sharp and scored twice in Bayern's 4-2 win over Werder Bremen.
