Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is renowned for his composure in and around his penalty box, and the Germany international lived up to that reputation after producing a brilliant piece of skill during Saturday's 4-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

The 28-year-old stopper showcased his talent with the ball at his feet when he completed a sensational flicked volley to clear away the danger as an opposition striker closed down on the edge of his 18-yard line.

Pep Guardiola's side were cruising with a three-goal advantage at the Commerzbank-Arena, and Neuer seized an opportunity to entertain the visiting supporters with a cheeky showboat.

Frankfurt manager Thomas Schaff didn't look particularly amused by the custodian's perceived arrogance, and was pictured raising an eyebrow on the touchline immediately after Neuer's tricky clearance.

The result means Bayern maintain their unbeaten start to the 2014/15 campaign, sitting top of the Bundesliga table with 27 points from their opening 11 games.
