The clear-cut 4-0 victory over Stuttgart was Bayern's ninth home win in a row, so the German record champions were suitably pleased after the match. "Many thanks to my players. It's difficult to play with this mentality every three days," said Pep Guardiola.

Reaction to Bayern v Stuttgart

Pep Guardiola:"Stuttgart had four or five chances. I like teams with this mentality. Many thanks to my players. It's difficult to play with this mentality every three days. So far they've done very well in all competitions. I hope our players return in good health from international duty so we can keep up this mentality until the Christmas break."

Arjen Robben: "We played very, very well in the intense first half and exploited the space. I didn't make use of all the chances I had, which is annoying, but perhaps I just saved up my goals for more important games."

Alexander Zorniger (VfB Stuttgart coach):"We didn't want to get slaughtered, so I tip my hat to my team's performance in the second half. You know what quality you're in for against Bayern in the second half. If you want to achieve anything here you have to do everything right. Congratulations to FC Bayern. They've sent out a signal, and not for the first time this season."

Timo Werner (Stuttgart forward): "We walked right into Bayern's traps. We've been caught on the break four times, you have to avoid goals like those in Munich. In the first half we pushed up too far, we did better in the second half."
