Lahm sees no end to Bayern's winning streak

The Bavarians made history on Saturday by defeating Werder Bremen to make it nine victories in a row and their captain expects their fine run to go on and on

Philipp Lahm is confident Bayern Munich's perfect start to the Bundesliga season will continue for some time to come, after their record-breaking feats on Saturday.

Thomas Muller's goal earned the reigning champion a 1-0 success at Werder Bremen as Pep Guardiola's men made it nine wins from nine to start the 2015-16 campaign - a league record.

Bayern, who have won the last three German titles, are already seven points clear of nearest challengers Borussia Dortmund and Lahm sees no reason why their winning run cannot continue.

"I can't see an end to this streak," the World Cup winner said.

"Our aim's always to win the three points, if then it leads to us breaking a record then that's all the better.

"It's not easy to be at your very best right from the first game of the season and constantly pick up three points.

"Let's put it this way – we go into every game to win it, and that's always going to be the case.

"Then there's a long way to go before we're champions. We've only played nine matches and we're only seven points clear, so nothing's decided yet.

"It's certainly impressive the way we're able to keep our foot down all the time and have all this energy. That's a great thing that we definitely want to sustain."
