Eredivisie Team of the Week: Four-goal El Khayati claims the MVP

The Eredivisie season is back and so is our Player of the Year tournament. Every week Will Burns and Steve Davies select the best 11 from that week’s action and each player is awarded one point. One member of the team will win the ‘Player of the Week’ award and be awarded two points. Check the current standings here.

FOUR goals by Nasser El Khayati more than earns himself Player of the Week! The attacking midfielder, a summer signing from Queens Park Rangers has hit six goals for the season already.

It’s the oldest strikeforce in the Eredivisie up top for our Team of the Week as Robin van Persie and Klaas Jan Huntelaar’s goals made them a no-brainer in the forward line.

PSV smashed Willem II 6-1 thanks to two goals from Nick Viergever and boy did Angelino put in a shift. The Spanish left-back on-loan from Manchester city certainly looks a talent at this early stage.

Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech are other entries from Ajax as they led their side to a 4-0 away victory in Arnhem versus Vitesse.

More next week. Remember to keep an eye on the standings of the Player of the Season tournament by clicking here.
