BERLIN - Champions Bayern Munich will kick off 2018 with an almost complete squad after top scorer Robert Lewandowski, Mats Hummels and Joshua Kimmich were declared fit before their Bundesliga campaign resumes against Bayer Leverkusen today.

The Bavarians, eyeing a record-extending sixth consecutive league title, are 11 points clear at the top, having won nine out of 10 league games under coach Jupp Heynckes, who took over in October following the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti. The trio of players resumed training this week after being out for several days and could now be in today's squad as the Bundesliga returns following its winter break.

Only Manuel Neuer and Thiago Alcantara, both long-term injury absentees, will be missing for their trip to Leverkusen though Heynckes will have new signing Sandro Wagner available, with the forward having joined from Hoffenheim.

"I think we are on a good track, we worked hard and are focused," said Germany international Wagner, who is hoping to nail down a spot in Germany's World Cup squad in June.

"No one is thinking about the lead in the standings," Wagner said. "That is why everyone is working extra hard."
