EX-CHELSEA star Jamal Musiala scored a stunning goal as he shone for Bayern Munich in the 3-3 draw with RB Leipzig on Saturday.
The England Under-21 international, still only 17, came off the bench as an early substitute at the Allianz Arena, replacing Javi Martinez after 25 minutes.

And within five minutes of stepping on to the field in arguably the biggest match of his life, Musiala fired his side level.
Trailing to Christopher Nkunku’s opener, the English teenager picked the ball up from Kingsley Coman 20 yards out.
He took one touch to get the ball out of his feet and then, with three defenders around him, let fly by cutting across the ball.
Musiala’s lethal strike stayed true and low, nestling into Peter Gulacsi’s bottom corner.
It was his third goal of a remarkable season for the playmaker, who left Chelsea after eight years in the academy last year to join Bayern.
The club’s youngest Bundesliga player ensured he also became their youngest goalscorer on the opening day of the season by finding the net in the 8-0 win over Schalke.
He was also on target against Eintracht Frankfurt before making his full Champions League debut away at Atletico Madrid in midweek.
But despite his excellent finish to equalise, Musiala could not inspire his team full of experienced senior internationals to victory.

Thomas Muller tapped in four minutes later to put Bayern in front.
But Julian Nagelsmann’s men hit back through Justin Kluivert’s first Leipzig goal and an Emil Forsberg header either side of the break before Muller headed in a second to snatch a point.
This was the fourth match in a row the Bavarians went behind, rescuing a point in two and winning two.
The result means Hansi Flick’s side stay top of the Bundesliga table, two points clear of Leipzig in second with Borussia Dortmund a further two behind.
