Arturo Vidal: 'I won't leave Bayern Munich in January'

Thomas Mueller controlled Jerome Boateng's cross on his chest with his first touch and profited from defender Milos Veljkovic's loss of balance as he scored with his next.

Jerome Gondorf had fired the visitors into a 26th-minute lead and Werder were level in the final quarter when Niklas Sule put through his own net.

Muller, a one-club man, scored the first of his century of league goals in a 5-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in September 2009.

But Bayern struck back with its first real chance minutes before the break.

The 22-year-old Germany worldwide has signed a four-year contract at Bayern, with his deal beginning July 1, 2018.

But two minutes later Lewandowski restored Bayern's lead as he jumped to head Muller's unsafe cross straight past Pavlenka.

Bremen's courageous display meant Bayern only took the lead for the first time with an hour gone.

But the champions turned on the style late on, Lewandowski powering in a header and Muller adding a landmark strike.

According to BBC, Bayern, who have won six league games in a row, are 16 points clear.

The visitors went agonisingly to going ahead just seven minutes in, as Max Kruse met Ludwig Augustinsson's cross and headed it onto the right-hand upright.

The hosts were troubled when Bremen took a deserved lead on 25 minutes to stun the Munich crowd in freezing temperatures.

After a quiet start to the half, Bayern took the lead on 63 minutes as Lewandowski connected with James Rodriguez's cross and sent a fine header into the corner of the net, 2-1.

But Bayern stepped things up a notch, with Lewandowski heading in Muller's cross two minutes later and the German finally finished Bremen off in the 84th minute, neatly tucking past Pavlenka following James' sumptuous chipped pass.
