Heynckes hails his record-breaking side

Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has hailed his side's performance after their 5-0 win away to Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday that saw them become the first team in history to win their first eight matches in the Bundesliga.

Bayern remained top of the table and kept up their 100% record thanks to goals from Mario Mandzukic, Luis Gustavo Dias, Rafinha and a brace from Thomas Muller.

And Heynckes was full of praise for their attacking brand of football as well as the solid display from their defence.

"From the first minute until the last, we played outstanding football in front of a fantastic crowd," he said. "Even more importantly, we kept it really tight in defence and made no mistakes.

"You can't relax for a single moment in a game like this, you have to stay focused the entire time - and that's what we did."

Muller, who also added an assist to his tally on Saturday, was complimentary of his team's performance and their fantastic start to the season.

"We can feel reassured to have started the season this way," he said. "We have learned to only concentrate on our performances.

"If we continue to play like that, it will be hard for any opponents to beat us."

Club captain Phillip Lahm echoed his team-mate's sentiments, saying: "We have to continue like that and it will be hard to beat us."

Meanwhile, there is further good news for Bayern with Kicker reporting that striker Mario Gomez will be back in full training this week after a sustained period out with injury.
