Hummels conceded two as Dortmund lost their Champions league first leg against Juventus 2-1 Tuesday.

The Dortmund captain returned for his first game since Freiburg on Feb. 7. but looked rusty from the start. Hummels didn't look comfortable at the back and seemed sluggish throughout in a forgettable game for the defender.

Hummels kept his second clean sheet in three games as Dortmund easily beat Freiburg 3-0 Saturday.

Hummels looked dominant defensively against Freiburg and never looked like he would set a foot wrong. Having played poorly in the last outing with Augsburg, Hummels looked remarkably composed in what was a routine win. Despite the flood of criticism sent Dortmund's way in recent weeks, the team's defensive line has now only conceded one in three.

Hummels had an uncharacteristically poor game Wednesday as Dortmund lost 1-0 at home to Augsburg.

All the speculation linking Hummels with a move away from Dortmund in the January transfer window may have affected the defender's preparations for Wednesday's match. The defender looked rusty and far less composed than usual, even his attempts to clear for the goal looked decidedly lacklustre. Dortmund cannot afford their captain having a repeat performance as they stay rooted to the foot of the table.

Hummels kept a clean sheet Saturday as Dortmund tied 0-0 with Bayer Leverkusen.

Hummels was on fine form for the Bundesliga restart, marshalling the back-line very effectively and keeping a clean sheet in the process. The highlight of his performance was an excellent goal-line clearance from Leverkusen's Gonzalo Castro attempt in the first half.

Hummels would not rule out moving to Manchester United despite insisting that he is loyal to the club, reports the Daily Mail.

Manchester United is in need of adding to their defensive line, and Hummels would come with a price tag of around 30 million. The defender said a move in January is unlikely, but did not rule out a transfer in the future.

Hummels scored his side's only goal as Dortmund lost 2-1 Saturday at Werder Bremen.

Hummels scored to pull a goal back for Dortmund but his diving header from Ilkay Gundogan's corner turned out only to be a consolation. The captain put in a lot of effort to get Dortmund a crucial win, ever-present in defense and going forward when the opportunity arose. However despite the goal and making a game high of successful tackles, his sloppy defending played a part in both the goals his team conceded. He was guilty of failing to execute the offside trap for Bremen's first goal after just three minutes and then was to easily turned on the build-up to the second. Hummels held his shirt over his head at the final whistle knowing simply that neither he nor Dortmund were good enough.

Hummels put in a very solid performance despite conceding two goals in Dortmund's 2-2 draw Wednesday with Wolfsburg.

Hummels was the star man of the Dortmund defense and really proved his worth to the team. He was a rock in defense throughout while he also had two shots and played a key part in Dortmund's first goal, his marauding run forward setting up Ciro Immobile who assisted Pierre-Emerick Aunameyang's finish. If Dortmund's torrid Bundesliga form continues into the New Year, they're going to find it really tough to keep hold of their prized captain come the end of the season.

Hummels failed to keep a clean sheet as Dortmund lost 1-0 Saturday to Hertha Berlin.

Hummels had a couple of good chances, going particularly close when Hertha Berlin goalkeeper Thomas Kraft punched over his header in the second half. Yet despite offering a threat aerially from set-pieces, Hummels was error-prone in defense. His performance was not up to its usual standard in what was a shaky looking Dortmund backline as the team fell to its ninth league defeat of the season.
