Welcome to our weekly section at TotalDutchFootball.com – the Eredivisie Team of the Week. Below you will see our ‘Player of the Week’ also – each player will be allocated points and at the end of the season we will declare our ‘Player of the Season’. Each player will be given one point for being named in our team and the ‘Player of the Week’ will gain two points.
Marco Bizot (FC Groningen) – In what seems a rarity, Bizot kept a clean sheet for Groningen this week as they kept up their 100% record. They have to thank Bizot at times, pulling off saves to keep his team at zero.
Santiago Arias (PSV) – The right-back, just signed for a snip from Sporting Lisbon looks to be fitting right in with the Eredivisie table-toppers. A strong performance helping the right wing in attack from the young Colombian.
Jeffrey Bruma (PSV) – Another excellent performance from the PSV man in the 5-0 win of NEC. Strikers Michael Higdon and Christoph Hemlein were kept at bay with ease by the big commanding central defender.
Darryl Lachman (PEC Zwolle) – The 23-year-old stormed forward with pleasure at times in the 3-1 win over Heralces and also put in some good blocks to intercept the Almelo attacks.
Xandro Schenk (Go Ahead Eagles) – A fantastic free-kick goal for the Eredivisie new boys earns him a spot in our team of the week.
Kamohelo Mokotjo (PEC Zwolle) – Another excellent display and scored a lovely goal in Zwolle’s 3-1 win over Heracles on Saturday.
Georginio Wijnaldum (PSV) – The new captain of PSV managed to go one better than last week and hit the net twice from attacking midfield.
Christian Eriksen (Ajax) – Although he tasted defeat against AZ and looked dejected after the game, he has to credited for yet another free-kick goal.
PLAYER OF THE WEEK Zakaria Bakkali (PSV) – A record-breaking five-star performance on Saturday and now the youngest player to ever score an Eredivisie hat-trick.
Romeo Castelen (RKC Waalwijk) – The returning Castelen scored his first Eredivisie goal for six years and was influential in his teams 4-2 victory over Vitesse Arnhem.
Marnix Kolder (Go Ahead Eagles) – His winning goal with ten minutes remaining on Saturday gave Go Ahead their first win on their return to the top flight.
