Muller said in a post-match interview: "He's a player with a lot of heart and a lot of power... extreme power.
"Sometimes maybe his positioning on the field is not the best, but he gets the opponent thinking, 'Oh, I have time, I have time'.
"And then 'Meep meep meep meep' the FC Bayern roadrunner comes ahead and steals the ball."
19-year old Davies has quickly established himself as Bayern's first-choice left-back since making the switch from the MLS and has produced an array of all-action displays up and down the flank.
He was sensational at Stamford Bridge in the 3-0 win over Chelsea in February, producing a stunning run and assist for Robert Lewandowski.
Davies is the real deal and he's absolutely rapid.
