Robert Lewandowski started the season after a disappointing World Cup in Russia as Poland were knocked out early in the group stages but the striker bears little responsibility after being provided with scanty service.

While Bayern Munich may not be having the best of seasons in Bundesliga as they sit at 5th position on the points table as Borussia Dortmund who sit on top of the table are 7 points clear of Bayern. The state of Bayern may not be down to Lewandowski as he has been brilliant if assessed by his individual performances. The Polish international has scored 7 goals and set up 3 goals for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga this season in just 10 games.

The 30-year-old remains one of the greatest strikers in the game, as he continues to demonstrate it at Bayern Munich. While the Pole's touch, movement and link-up play are still outstanding Bayern must hope he gets them out of this rut.
