Eredivisie Team Of The Week – Round 5


Welcome to week five 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.



ERIK CUMMINS (Go Ahead Eagles): Although the Eagles fell to a 2-1 defeat away to Twente, Cummins saved a spot-kick to give his side a lifeline, but his efforts were wasted as the outfielders failed to get a goal for a point.


KELVIN LEERDAM (Vitesse Arnhem): A great performance from Leerdam in Vitesse’s 3-1 win over Excelsior, maurading down the wing to cause trouble throughout.

ETIENNE REIJNEN (SC Cambuur): Solid display from the big central defender in which he created an assist in his side’s comfortable 3-0 win over Groningen.

JOOST BROERSE (PEC Zwolle): Made amends from a first-half handball to concede a penalty to hammer home a wonderful second half free-kick to help Zwolle defeat PSV 3-1.

BART VAN HINTUM (PEC Zwolle): Gave Santiago Arias no time at all to create any chances for Luuk de Jong and attacked the left wing well to help out the Zwolle attack.


BEN REINSTRA (PEC Zwolle): The defender/midfielder scored a sublime strike to clinch all three points against PSV in Saturday’s late game.

ALBERT RUSNAK (SC Cambuur): The on-loan Manchester City man made his second ‘Team of the Week’ with a cracking performance against Groningen capped with a great goal.

JESUS MANUEL CORONA (FC Twente): A bit of a forgotten man in Enschede made everyone remember his name on Saturday with a wonderful goal, an assist and won a penalty in Twente’s win over Go Ahead Eagles.

JESPER DROST (PEC Zwolle): Played a great part in the 3-1 win over PSV with the equalising goal before half-time, although PSV keeper Jeroen Zoet should have done better with the shot.


SAMUEL ARMENTAROS (Willem II): The former Feyenoord striker tore his former team apart with a goal and assist in Willem II’s shock 2-1 win at De Kuip.

ABIOLA DAUDA (Vitesse Arnhem): The Nigerian became our Player Of The Week after scoring a 25 minute hat-trick against Excelsior on Sunday afternoon – looking a snip at €500,000 in the summer from Red Star Belgrade.

The underdogs of Zwolle have bitten another big dog and sent them away with their tails between their legs. This time it was the turn of Philip Cocu’s PSV to take home a 3-1 defeat to the hands of Ron Jans’ men after they lost superstar Memphis Depay to an early injury writes Will Burns.

Zwolle started debutant Warner Hahn in goal after the sale of Diederik Boer to Ajax on deadline day but it was his opposite number Jeroen Zoet was called into action first pulling off a save from the lively Jody Lukoki. Hahn’s gloves were warmed up minutes later as Depay fired a trademark free-kick at the young stopper. Depay, scorer of five goals in his last four Eredivisie games, did not last on the pitch much longer as he was struggling with a thigh problem and was replaced by striker Jurgen Locadia.

PSV were stupidly given a penalty kick by Joost Broerse after clearly handballing in the area from a corner kick. Luuk de Jong fired the ball straight down the middle to give PSV the lead and score his second goal of the campaign.

However, just before half-time the home side were given an equaliser by Zoet as Jesper Drost’s drive from the edge of the area was palmed in by the keeper. A shocking error that lifted the IJsseldelta Stadion as Zwolle surged on for a second, Cocu was desperate to hear Danny Makkelie’s half-time whistle.

Just after the hour-mark, tricky winger Ryan Thomas earned a free-kick after half-time substitute Oskar Hiljemark bundled him over around 30 yards out. The home fans clapped in unison as Broerse set-up the free-kick like a pole-vaulter at the Olympic Games. The 34-year-old defender smashed home a beauty to make it 2-1 and to earn redemption off the delighted Zwolle supporters for his earlier handball.

Ben Rienstra capped the night off after surging into the area, overpowering Hiljemark and chipping a wonderful effort over Zoet to cement the points late on.

Zwolle once again show tremendous character to win an important game inside a big atmosphere as PSV will now worry how long Depay will be missing from this team who are ready to mount a serious challenge for the league championship.
