Kingsley Coman played his way back into favour on Sunday, with a first-half brace that helped fire Bayern Munich back to the top of the Bundesliga with a comfortable 4-1 win at Fortuna Duesseldorf.

French winger Coman was involved in a training ground punch-up with Robert Lewandowski earlier in the week, but on Sunday he kept Bayern on course for a seventh successive league title.

Bayern, needing three points to stay top after rivals Borussia Dortmund edged to a nervy win over Mainz on Saturday.

The win keeps Bayern a point ahead of Dortmund with five games still to play. “Dortmund are not playing brilliantly at the moment, but they are getting results, and that puts pressure on us,” Mueller told Sky.
