Analysing Robert Lewandowski's incredible start to the season

Robert Lewandowski has enjoyed a stellar start to the season and the Pole is currently in the form of his life.

Whilst Bayern Munich may not be at the top of Bundesliga and recently sacked manager Niko Kovac, for Lewandowski personally it has been a season to remember so far.

Remarkably, as he enters the international break, the former Dortmund striker has scored at least one goal in every Bundesliga and Champions League game so far.

He has already notched up 16 Bundesliga goals in only 11 games and is well on the way to securing the Bundesliga golden boot for the fourth time in five years.

Gerd Muller holds the record for most goals in one Bundesliga season, once scoring 40 and the way the Bayern Munich forward is going, he could come close to toppling it.

The 31 year old has also helped Bayern secure qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League, by already notching six goals in the four group games so far.

He would need another 12 goals in the Champions League to beat Cristiano Ronaldo's record of 17 in one season but that is very dependant on how Munich can get.

Adding on his two goals in the domestic cup, he already has 25 goals in competitions for Bayern this season and is well on his way to superpassing the 44 he managed across all club competitions during the 2016/17 season

As good as his personal achievements on the pitch have been, the striker will be hoping that some of his team mates can start helping him and Bayern can improve results.

Bayern are still four points behind table topping Monchengladbach but beat Dortmund 4-0 on Saturday in Hans Flick's second game as caretaker boss and the German looks set to be appointed manager until at least the end of the season.

It's fair to say Lewandowski has started the season in sensational form and it'll be interesting to see how long the Pole can keep up his run of scoring in every Bundesliga and Champions League game.
