hupperts bIt was a bumper week of Eredivisie action, with Feyenoord, Vitesse, and Twente all winning, while PSV smashed Ajax 4-0 in the meeting of last season’s top two.

Below is our team of the week in a 4.3.3 formation:

Goalkeeper- Piet Velthuizen (Vitesse)

Vitesse’s last line of defence was excellent during his side’s 3-0 win over league leader’s PEC Zwolle, smartly keeping out an early Mateusz Klich effort. He was also called off his line a number of times to deny the dangerous Fred Benson.

Right back- Joshua Brenet (PSV)

Young PSV right back was up against Viktor Fischer, and kept the tricky Dane quiet for most of the 3-0 win over Ajax. Brenet was also unlucky not to score, when he shot just over the bar following a corner. A very accomplished performance.

Left Back- Lucas Bijker (Cambuur)

Cambuur came under immense pressure, after falling a man down against Go Ahead Eagles in the first half, but defended excellently to escape with a 0-0 draw. The top performer was left back, Lucas Bijker, who was rock solid, and made one crucial clearance of the line.

Centre back- Jeffrey Bruma (PSV)

In the first half of PSV’s 4-0 win over Ajax, it was the Amsterdam club, who were on top, but they could not find a way past the excellent Bruma. The defender made key interceptions throughout the match, including when Bojan was through one on one.

Centre back- Rasmus Bengtsson (Twente)

The Twente centre back was rarely troubled as Twente swept aside Heracles 3-0, and Bengtsson also got the scoring underway with a good header from a corner.

Midfield- Park ji Sung (PSV)

Man of the match as PSV swept Ajax aside 4-0, with Park excellent throughout the game, and scoring a great goal, where he ran the length of the Ajax half, before calmly beating Vermeer. Started on the wing, before moving infield, and helped control the centre of the pitch, with a classy performance.

Midfield- Nick van der Velden (Groningen)

Groningen hammered ten man RKC Waalwijk 4-1, with Nick van der Velden scoring the opener, with a left footed shot straight into the top corner. The midfielder also added an assist late on with a perfect free kick delivery.

Midfield- Krisztián Adorján (Groningen)

The midfielder on loan from Liverpool scored an excellent solo goal for Groningen in their 4-1 win over RKC late on, and was unlucky not to have had further goals to his name. The youngster can tackle, dribble, and score goals, meaning Groningen have a talent on their hands.

Attacker- Guus Hupperts (Roda JC)

The winger caught the eye in Roda JC’s 3-3 draw with Heerenveen, and scored the crucial equaliser to earn his side a point. Pace, and tricks, make Hupperts one to watch if he continues this kind of form.

Attacker- Lucas Piazon (Vitesse)

The classy Brazilian was excellent in Vitesse’s 3-0 win over PEC Zwolle, scoring twice, and causing a number of problem’s for the oppositions defence. Vitesse may have found the perfect Marco van Ginkel replacement, shame he is only on loan from Chelsea.

Attacker- Alfred Finnbogason (Heerenveen)

Another goal, and assist for the on fire Heerenveen front man, who now has nine goals for the season. His latest was at the end of a great run, which saw him beat three men before sliding the ball into the corner.
