Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies has admitted that his pace is his greatest strength despite being caught out of position many times.

The winger turned defender on Tuesday played a key role as Bayern Munich beat title rivals Dortmund to go seven points clear at the top of the table.

“Obviously being a young player I get caught out of position a lot and I’m happy to have the speed I have," Davies told the Bundesliga.

"That’s a factor in my game that I use very well, but I think over the years going forward with this team I will definitely learn more about my position, better positioning so it doesn’t look like I’m out of position just running back as fast as I can to catch up.”

The Ghana born defender made a crucial intervention in the second half when he out-run Dortmund striker Erling Haaland to make a crucial clearance.

Joshua Kimmich's 43rd minute goal was the difference on the day.
