PSV Eindhoven made it eight league wins from eight games with a 4-0 victory over VVV Venlo in the Philips Stadion. 

Following the 2-1 loss to Inter Milan in the Champions League in midweek, Mark van Bommel was forced into one change with Trent Sainsbury replacing the sick Daniel Schwaab. The Australian defender had to make a last-ditch challenge to prevent Ralf Seuntjens from giving VVV the lead early on as PSV began slowly.

Eventually, PSV began creating chances and in the 34th minute, the opening goal came when Pereiro combined with Pablo Rosario and De Jong before feeding Hirving Lozano who found the bottom corner.

Jay-Roy Grot missed an excellent chance to equalise for VVV early in the second half before PSV took control with Steven Bergwijn a constant threat. The winger, who is in line to make his Netherlands debut next week set up Luuk de Jong to head in PSV’s second on 64 minutes.

Bergwijn then set up substitute Erick Gutiérrez to curl in a third before Lozano sealed the victory from the penalty spot in injury time. The spot-kick was given for a foul on Jorrit Hendrix which was spotted by VAR.

The win keeps PSV perfect in the league with 24 points from 24 while VVV are 6th.
