WATCH: Thomas Müller Gives Bayern Munich 1-0 lead in 1st Half in Bremen

Müller continues to disprove Bayern's slow start theory.

What was that stigma of Bayern Munich starting matches too slow?

Thomas Müller opened the scoring in the first half for the second straight Bundesliga match. He got on the end of a cheeky lob from Thiago Alcantara on a great diagonal run before tapping the ball past Felix Wiewald in goal.

Werder Bremen defenders Assani Lukimya and Alejandro Gálvez, who have conceded seven goals in the four Bundesliga matches coming into Saturday's match, shouted as loud as they could for offside, but referee Christian Dingert granted Bayern the goal without a blink.

Müller now has nine goals in ten appearances in the Bundesliga this season, second only to his polish teammate Robert Lewandowski. Müller was unable to get on the scoresheet for Germany over the international break, but that has not stopped his club form with Bayern so far.
