Another year has passed and Bayern Munich’s deputy-like grip on the Bundesliga title remains unshakable.
Die Roten is approaching a tenth league victory in a row, so it comes as no surprise that their players will dominate our Bundesliga team 2021.
Although this could simply have been a Bayern XI, there is still some representation from elsewhere – mainly to keep things interesting.
The German top class is not known for its world-class defense in modern times, so excuse us for going a little Garth Crooks with our choices …

Manuel Neuer (GK) – Germany’s number one has recovered as the best goalkeeper on the planet in 2021. Captain of the spectacular, the Bayern captain has reinvented the role of goalkeeper and is comfortably the most entertaining goalkeeper on the planet.
Lukas Klostermann (CB) – Always reliable for RB Leipzig, and even though Die Roten Bullen has not shone this season, Klostermann was part of the Bundesliga’s most frugal back line 2020/21.
Dayot Upamecano (CB) – Another member of Leipzig’s backline, and now he excels in Bavaria. Upamecano has been among Europe’s best midfielders in 2021.
Nico Schlotterbeck (CB) – Schlotterbeck has had a rapid rise in 2021. After shining on loan to Union Berlin in the second half of last season, the Freiburg player has undoubtedly been the best defender in the Bundesliga this season. Shockingly, he is a target for Bayern.

Serge Gnabry (RM) – Gnabry is the most explosive winger in the Bundesliga, and the scary thing is that it feels like he has more gears to go to. He ends the year with 15 league goals for Bayern.
Joshua Kimmich (CM) – Among the best midfielders on the planet when he is Covid-free. Another Bayern man, Kimmich holds ridiculously high standards and made a flying start in 2021/22.
Jude Bellingham (CM) – What a year for Birmingham’s best. The dynamic English national team player has gone from strength to strength in 2021 and is one of the first names on the team list as the year draws to a close. He already has nine assists in 2021/22.
Thomas Müller (AM) – The timeless Bayern Munich favorite has reinvented itself as an offensive midfielder. The 32-year-old has given obscene 30 assists in the league in 2021.
Leroy Sané (LM) – While his debut season back in the Bundesliga was generally considered overwhelming, his calendar year has been anything but. Sané looks back on his flying best with 14 goals and 17 assists in the league in the last 12 months.

Robert Lewandowski (ST) – What is left to write about Lewandowski? The Pole’s impressive goal form continued this year and he ends 2021 with 43 Bundesliga attacks in his name. Forty-three. The world’s best striker, without anyone.
Erling Haaland (ST) – Another goal phenomenon that seems sure to inherit Lewandowski’s title in the future. Borussia Dortmund’s Haaland has been extraordinary since January, and almost always seems to score in pairs – leading to a total of 30 for the year.
