Thomas Muller admits Bayern Munich are feeling the pressure in title pursuit

Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller has admitted that the team are feeling the pressure as they seek to secure an eighth-straight Bundesliga crown. The Bavarian giants recently extended their gap over Borussia Dortmund to four points at the top of the table, but they had to do it in the hard way after scrapping through a 1-0 win over Werder Bremen at the Allianz Arena.

Speaking after the game, Muller admitted that the club are desperate to win the German top-flight title and this has certainly increased the pressure of expectations, he told "The pressure is there, we’re feeling it as we all desperately want to win the Bundesliga title. After half time, we had to up the pace, which we did, even though the result was still relatively close."
