A round-up of how all the Dutchmen playing in Europe’s biggest leagues fared over the weekend.


Italian Serie A

Frank de Boer is coming under more pressure as Inter Milan boss after his side slumped to a 2-1 defeat at Atalanta. Inter now slide to 14th in the table.

Kevin Diks made his first appearance in Serie A this season as a late substitute in Fiorentina’s 5-3 win over Cagliari.

Jonathan de Guzman was an unused substitute for Chievo in their 0-0 draw at Empoli.

Kevin Strootman made his return from injury as a 70th-minute substitute for Roma in their 4-1 win over Palermo. Ouasim Bouy was an unused substitute for Palermo.

English Premier League

Virgil van Dijk was once again outstanding in the Southampton defence as his side held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw on Sunday.
