Lewandowski hails Guardiola tactics

Bayern München striker Robert Lewandowski believes a tactical adjustment by manager Pep Guardiola%u200B has been vital to his goalscoring form.

The Poland international has been in great form, scoring ten Bundesliga goals in six games this season, including an incredible five-goal haul against VfL Wolfsburg earlier in September.

And Lewandowski admitted that having more traditional wingers in Douglas Costa and Kingsley Coman in the absence of injured duo Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery has helped him flourish.

"With Douglas Costa and Coman on the wings, there are lots of crosses and therefore lots of chances in the box," Lewandowski told ESPN FC.

"It also helps that Thomas Muller is playing very closely to me, like a second striker.

"It's hard to keep the ball when you're up against four defenders and two holding midfielders by yourself. It's easier with somebody next to you, somebody you can combine with."
