Jupp Heynckes praised his Bayern Munich stars as well as the club's hard-pressed doctors for turning a five-point deficit into a four-point lead over their Bundesliga rivals following Saturday's key 3-1 win at Borussia Dortmund.
Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski and David Alaba netted the goals as Heynckes's magic touch worked again, four weeks after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked.
Under the 72-year-old Heynckes, who steered Bayern to the 2013 treble, the Munich giants have won all seven games in the Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup.
They now lead second-placed RB Leipzig by four points and are six ahead of third-placed Dortmund.
"We shouldn't get carried away. It was impossible to predict four weeks ago that we would now be six points ahead of Dortmund and four ahead of Leipzig," said Heynckes.
"We have worked outstandingly on the training field and in meetings over the last four and a half weeks.
"I also have to compliment our medical department. The doctors and the physios also worked day and night because the players have been heavily burdened with a lot of matches." None more so than striker Robert Lewandowski, who missed Tuesday's Champions League win at Celtic with a thigh strain, yet dazzled at his ex-club Dortmund.
