PSV Eindhoven have maintained their perfect start to the season after a slender 1-0 win over AZ Alkmaar in the Philips Stadion.

moreno ddAZ lined up with five defenders in a bid to frustrate PSV’s attackers and it worked in the first half with the home side only creating one clear cut chance. Sergio Rochet kept out Luuk de Jong’s header and from the rebound Davy Propper fired wide.

On 52 minutes, PSV found a way through with Jetro Willems cross met by the head of former AZ defender Hector Moreno and the ball flew past Rochet.

PSV could have added further goals after the opener but poor finishing let them down, while AZ’s counter attacking style failed to produce an equaliser. The slim victory keeps PSV joint top with Feyenoord, while AZ travel to Serbia in the Europa League next week looking to return to winning ways.
