SO, THEY ARE mortal after all.

Last night, Bayern Munich failed to win a league game for the first time since May – held to a scoreless draw by Eintracht Frankfurt.

Pep Guardiola’s side had won all ten of their Bundesliga games, hitting 33 goals in the process.

They had scored in every competitive match this season but that run ended at the Commerzbank Arena.

Robert Lewandowski thought he’d netted an 89th-minute winner but he was correctly found to have been offside and  the mid-table side survived to claim a memorable point.

Next up for the German giants is a Champions League clash with Arsenal – the Bavarians having suffered a 2-0 defeat in the reverse fixture a fortnight ago.

The stalemate with Frankfurt does give second-placed Borussia Dortmund the chance to cut the deficit at the top of the league.

They face Werder Bremen later today and a victory will inch them to within five points of their bitter rivals.

Crisis? What crisis? It’s been some start for Chelsea against Liverpool
