Football-Oranje picks its team of the week from round 14 of the Eredivisie.

eredivisie-team-14Sergio Padt: A 4-0 win for Groningen may indicate that Sergio Padt had an easy afternoon, but that is far from the truth. PEC Zwolle dominated large parts of Saturday’s clash and only a number of saves from the stopper, and some poor finishing ensured that Groningen kept a clean sheet.

Hans Hateboer: Another stong performance from the Groningen right back saw him end the match with not only a clean sheet, but also two assists.

Ridgeciano Haps: He has been the strongest left back in the Eredivisie all season and Haps once again looked excellent in the 5-1 win over Heracles. Haps earned himself one assist while remaining untroubled at the back.

Dario Dumic: The centre-back was linked with Newcastle United during the week and you could see why on Saturday as he put in a strong performance in the 3-2 win over Twente. He was not only assured at the back, but Dumic also got himself on the scoresheet to ensure victory.

Davinson Sanchez: The Colombian centre back was once again excellent at the back for Ajax in their 1-0 win over Heerenveen on Sunday. Sanchez made nine clearances and two interceptions as he dominated Heerenveen’s attack.

Robert Muhren: Heracles couldn’t handle the AZ midfielder on Sunday with Muhren netting twice in the first half, and he could have completed his hat-trick on several occasions in the second.

Davy Klaassen: The Ajax captain was once again crucial for Ajax as he netted the only goal in their 1-0 win over Heerenveen. Klaassen made a clever run into the box and was calm with the ball at his feet to beat a Heerenveen keeper Erwin Mulder.

Simon Tibbling: The Swede kick-started Groningen’s 4-0 win over PEC Zwolle with a goal in the opening minute and after that Tibbling remained one of the best players on the pitch. A very assured performance.

Jay-Roy Grot: The 18-year-old was handed a start on Saturday and he repaid that faith with an excellent first half double in NEC’s 3-2 win over FC Twente. The tall forward is definitely one to watch for the Nijmegen side.

Oleksandr Zinchenko: The on-loan Manchester City youngster inspired PSV’s 3-1 win over ADO Den Haag on Saturday with the midfielder playing a part in two of their goals. Zinchenko played a glorious through ball to Luuk de Jong in the second half for PSV’s third goal.

Sebastien Haller: The Frenchman hasn’t been as lethal in front of goal so far this season as Utrecht’s fans expect but he netted twice in the 3-3 draw on Sunday and looked back to his best.
