Jadon Sancho scored the winner for Borussia Dortmund against rivals Schalke

Jadon Sancho fired Borussia Dortmund nine points clear at the top of the Bundesliga on Saturday with a late winner in a 2-1 derby triumph at Schalke, while a Robert Lewandowski double against Nuremberg helped champions Bayern Munich up to second.

England winger Sancho, who suffered a bereavement in mid-week, slotted the winner 15 minutes from time in Gelsenkirchen to seal Dortmund’s first away derby win for five years and maintain an unbeaten start that now stretches to 14 games.

Thomas Delaney’s seventh-minute header for Dortmund was cancelled out by a Daniel Caligiuri penalty just after the hour mark before Sancho struck following a beautiful one-two with Raphael Guerreiro.
