The versatile defender was in fine form during the win over Bremen but the Spaniard joked that he could have contributed even more Pep Guardiola joked that he expected two-goal hero Philipp Lahm to score a hat-trick in Bayern Munich's 6-0 Bundesliga win over Werder Bremen. The 30-year-old opened the scoring in the 20th minute before doubling his personal tally in the 79th minute to score his first-ever double, with Mario Gotze (2), Thomas Muller and Xabi Alonso finding the net as well. "I must admit that I am a bit disappointed with Philipp," Guardiola said at a press conference. "I expected him to get a hat-trick..." "Of course, I am delighted for Philipp and I am proud to be his coach." Meanwhile, the former Germany captain himself has admitted that he is unlikely to net a double again in the future. "I don't know whether this will be the last time I score twice in one game, but I think that's very likely..." Lahm had netted just 11 goals in 412 official appearances for Bayern ahead of the win over Bremen. Bayern Munich 6-0 Werder Bremen
