However, despite seeing his side go top of the table, the German tactician is keen to point out that it is still early days and believes there is plenty to improve on yet.
"I am more happy with the play and the results than the league table," said Schuster, who replaced title-winning coach Fabio Capello at the Bernabeu this summer. "We still have things to improve and the league table is not important. To be first is not bad, but to be there later on is more important."
