We at Football-Oranje.com select our team of the week from round three of the Eredivisie.


It was a great weekend of action in the Eredivisie with PSV seeing off Ajax 3-1, while Utrecht caused the shock of the week beating Feyenoord 2-1. There were wins for Cambuur, Willem II, Heerenveen, PEC Zwolle, and ADO Den Haag. Go Ahead Eagles drew 0-0 with Dordrecht, while NAC netted a 90th minute equaliser to earn a point against Twente.

Our team of the week is:

Goalkeeper: Martin Hansen (ADO Den Haag)

Hansen was the outstanding goalkeeper of the weekend, helping his side keep a clean sheet against Groningen with seven saves throughout the match.

Defender: Joshua Brenet (PSV Eindhoven)

The PSV right back was impressive up against Lasse Schone during the 3-1 win over Ajax on Sunday, and also looked to get forward at every opportunity. The youngster is looking like a much better option than Santiago Arias for the starting spot.

Defender: Martin Peersman (Dordrecht)

Dordrecht came away from Deventer with a very credible draw against Go Ahead Eagles, and Peersman helped his side keep a clean sheet by keeping the dangerous Lesley de Sa quiet throughout the game.

Defender: Maikel van der Werff (PEC Zwolle)

He may have missed a penalty in PEC Zwolle’s Europa League tie last week, but Van der Werff responded in style by putting in a great defensive performance in the 2-1 win over Vitesse, with the defender also scoring from a free kick.

Defender: Gianni Zuiverloon (ADO Den Haag)

Before ADO Den Haag scored two late goals to seal a 3-0 win on Sunday they were put under a lot of pressure from Groningen, and only some excellent defending from Zuiverloon stopped their opponents scoring. The centre back made one great clearance of the line, and won all his aerial duels.

Midfield: Roland Alberg (ADO Den Haag)

Alberg was in excellent form on Sunday, and was behind both of Kramer’s goals against Groningen with two perfect assists.

Midfield: Ali Messaoud (Willem II)

The midfielder was a constant threat to the AZ Alkmaar defence, scoring once and hitting the post as Willem II claimed their first win of the season.

Midfield: Daley Sinkgraven (Heerenveen)

Heerenveen may have lost Hakim Ziyech, but in Sinkgraven the club have a special talent, who can easily replace the now Twente man in their midfield. Against Excelsior on Saturday, the youngster was excellent, and ended the game with an 89% pass accuracy.

Forward: Luciano Narsingh (PSV Eindhoven)

Narsingh’s pace on the right wing helped PSV end a six year wait for a win at the Amsterdam Arena. He raced away from Joel Veltman to set up Memphis Depay’s equaliser, before running onto De Jong’s through ball to put his side 2-1 up. The winger finally looks back to his best.

Forward: Tommy Oar (Utrecht)

The winger was the catalyst for Utrecht’s 2-1 win over Feyenoord on Sunday, setting up both goals. His first assist was after great persistence to steal the ball in he corner.

Forward: Michiel Kramer (ADO Den Haag)

The tall striker netted two late goals to seal a 3-0 win over Groningen, and was a nuisance up front the whole game.
