seda asTwente were the big winners of round 21 as they beat Cambuur 3-1, closing the gap on Ajax, who could only draw with Utrecht, at the top, whilst Feyenoord v Vitesse also finished in a draw. PSV’s season went from bad to worse in a 2-0 defeat to RKC, while their was wins for PEC Zwolle, AZ, Heerenveen, and NAC Breda.

Our team of the week is:

Goalkeeper: Jan Seda (RKC Waalwijk)

RKC’s keeper was in inspired form to keep out PSV in the 2-0 win on Sunday making a number of important stops, whilst also dominating in the air when the Eindhoven side resorted to long balls into the box near the end.

Right Back: Michael Lamey (RKC)

Lamey made crucial blocks in and around the penalty box to help his side come out victorious. Had to deal with the tricky Memphis Depay, but came out on top in their dual.

Left Back: Remy Amieux (RKC)

Like Lamey, Amieux dominated his side of the wing, and kept Luciano Narsingh quiet throughout until the PSV man was taken off. Amieux also made a great effort to get forward and set up attacks in a great all round performance.

Centre Back: Kenny Otigba (Heerenveen)

Scored Heerenveens opener in the 3-0 win over ADO Den Haag, showing great determination to prod the ball over the line. A the back, Otigba also made a number of crucial blocks including one on the line.

Centre Back: Guram Kashia (Vitesse)

Netted Vitesse’s equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Feyenoord on Friday with a bullet header. Kashia’s work helped Vitesse escape De Kuip with a point and maintain their fight for the Eredivisie title, as the defender helped keep Graziano Pelle at bay for most of the match.

Midfielder: Nemanja Gudelj (AZ)

Scored two stunning goals in the 2-0 win over Groningen, his first a rocket into the top corner from just outside the box, before netting with a brilliant volley. One of Gudelj’s best performances for AZ so far.

Midfielder: Evender Sno (RKC)

Sno netted both the goals in RKC’s battling 2-0 win over PSV. The midfielder showed great determination to get forward throughout the game, and also excellent composure with two excellent finishes. Despite the goals, Sno was also a massive presence in breaking up PSV attacks.

Midfielder: Dusan Tadic (Twente)

Tadic played a major part in Twente coming from behind to beat Cambuur on Sunday, laying on two assists in the eventual 3-1 victory. The midfielder also came close to scoring in another classy performance.

Forward: Bilal Basacikoglu (Heerenveen)

The 18-year-old has been one of the breakthrough talents in the Eredivisie this season, and the winger was once again excellent in the 3-0 win on Saturday, causing the ADO Den Haag a number of problems with his dribbling skills. Basacikoglu won the penalty which eventually made it 2-0.

Forward: Steve de Ridder (Utrecht)

De Ridder showed good composure to bring Utrecht level against Ajax on Sunday, holding off Joel Veltman before rounding Jasper Cillessen and slotting into an empty net. Could have won the game in the end, but his effort came back off the post.

Forward: Quincy Promes (Twente)

Promes once again dazzled in Twente’s win over Cambuur, ending the game with another assist to his name, whilst seeing a goal bound effort well saved. The winger is becoming one of the most dangerous attackers in the Eredivisie and a Netherlands call-up cant be far off.
