Ramselaar made 49 appearances for Utrecht before moving to PSV Eindhoven in the summer. Sunday will be the first time the midfielder has faced his old club because he was still at Utrecht when the two sides met earlier this season.

Ramselaar said, ”It will be strange and will be like a training match because I trained so much with these players when I played for FC Utrecht. I think that it is great for FC Utrecht that they are 4th in the Eredivisie and I am delighted for them and I hope that they can qualify to play European football at the end of the season.

”When I played for FC Utrecht at home to PSV Eindhoven at the start of the season I was motivated to play extra well so that apparent interest from PSV Eindhoven for me remained because you never know what can happen in terms of a transfer.

”I must say the difference of playing for PSV Eindhoven is that the internal and external pressure is bigger and you must perform well in every match. At FC Utrecht we could lose a couple of games but if PSV Eindhoven lose a couple of games it’s a crisis.

”Normally If I score I go wild but if I score against FC Utrecht I will try to be calm.”
