Afterwards Frank de Boer said to NOS, “I said before the game that it was important not to lose today and to win is absolutely fantastic.

”We started well with a great goal from Milik and a fantastic assisted pass from Joel Veltman but after the first goal I thought that we fell away a bit during the first half”.

In the run up to the game PSV were the favorite to win after their good form of late and champions league exploits. This result may well be looked upon as a surprise result, but Frank de Boer does certainly not see it that way. ” No we had full confidence is getting a good result today and we knew we could win if we could take it to PSV as a team and work together and be compact and to dare to take our chances when they arrive and we did that”.

”I am very proud of our players they fought really hard for this victory and they deserved to win this game.

”I have always said that I prefer to be the league leaders rather than the chasers but we must play this way every week until the end of the season and then we have a great chance to be champions”.
