Welcome to week three of our Eredivisie Team of the Week which leads into our Eredivisie ‘Player of the Season’ competition. All players have performed so well this weekend that Martijn Hilhorst and Will Burns have decided they should be in our team of the week. Each player in the eleven receives one point and whichever player is declared ‘Player of the Week’, he receives an extra point.
KOSTAS LAMPROU – WILLEM II: A tremendous clean sheet against AZ Alkmaar, denying the Alkmaar side seven times to keep a point for the Tilburgers.
KEVIN DIKS – VITESSE: Another fantastic outing for the soon-to-be-superstar – kept Feyenoord at bay while posing a threat at the other end.
THOMAS LAM – PEC ZWOLLE: The young Finnish defender has become reliable at the back for Ron Jans and made some vital challenges in their 2-1 over FC Twente.
DIRK MARCELLIS – PEC ZWOLLE: The rock and leader at the back for PEC Zwolle – creating a great partnership with the young Lam.
CANER CAVLAN – SC HEERENVEEN: The left-back has made quite the arrival in Friesland. Great performance keeping Luciano Narsingh quiet and converting a spot-kick in the great 1-1 draw against PSV.
BEN REINSTRA – PEC ZWOLLE: Scorer of the winning goal in a team that is over-performing yet again this season so far.
WOUTER MARINUS – PEC ZWOLLE: Strong performance for the young midfielder who is finally finding himself under Ron Jans.
THOMAS BRUNS – HERACLES: A helping hand in Heracles’ 6-1 victory over SC Cambuur – a solid outing topped off with a fine goal.
OUSSAMA TANNANE – HERACLES: Scoring FOUR goals means that Mr Tannane is our PLAYER OF THE WEEK.
ARKADIUSK MILIK – AJAX: A leading performance up top for the Amsterdammers, notching a goal in their 2-0 win over N.E.C. Nijmegen.
WOUT WEGHORST – HERACLES: Took a ‘supporting actor’ role in Saturday night’s 6-1 demolition of SC Cambuur. However, notched a lovely goal to help Heracles complete the rout.
