Steven Berghuis hit a hattrick as Feyenoord defeated PSV Eindhoven 3-1 in De Kuip to pile the pressure on Mark van Bommel.

Dick Advocaat was able to recall Kenneth Vermeer and Nicolai Jorgensen for the clash with PSV. The visitors made several changes to the side that drew with Rosenborg in the Europa League on Thursday. Donyell Malen, Pablo Rosario and Ritsu Doan all started while Olivier Boscagli remained at left-back.

PSV started brightly but it was Feyenoord who took the lead in the 19th minute when Steven Berghuis headed in a Luis Sinisterra cross.

The Colombian winger then played a big role as Feyenoord doubled their lead in the 34th minute. He drove past Denzel Dumfries and the right-back pulled him back to concede a penalty. Berghuis added a second from the spot.

Just after the break, PSV were dealt another blow when Donyell Malen was forced off injured. Cody Gakpo replaced the striker.

In the 64th minute, Feyenoord were awarded another penalty when Nick Viergever was adjudged to use his hand to block a Berghuis strike. The winger made no mistake to seal his hattrick and put Feyenoord 3-0 up.

Steven Bergwijn was denied by an excellent Kenneth Vermeer save while at the other end, Lars Unnerstall kept the score down with an important stop to keep out Jorgensen.

Substitute Gaston Pereiro did pull one back for PSV with a delightful chip over Vermeer but it was nothing but a consolation. Feyenoord rise to fifth in the table while PSV remains fourth.

Big question marks will now once again surround Mark van Bommel’s position in charge after another sorry defeat.
