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 returned from injury and kept a clean sheet in Dortmund's 1-0 victory Friday over Hoffenheim.

Hummels hadn't played since injuring his foot against Bayern Munich on Nov. 1 but was fit to return against Hoffenheim and kept a clean sheet. Although his defensive services weren't called upon frequently, the Dortmund captain commanded the backline expertly and did well to track back to clear a goal bound Sebastian Rody free kick. He also had two shots and went close to scoring when Hoffenheim goalkeeper Oliver Baumann tipped over his header. This performance was a reminder that Hummels is a key part of the Dortmund defense and his team will desperately hope he has more luck with injury in the second half of the season.
