Welcome to week two of the Total Dutch Football.com Eredivisie 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.
Week two sees Robin van Persie claim the Player of the Week award after the shift he put in during Feyenoord’s 3-0 win over Rotterdam rivals Excelsior. Scoring one and creating one, he got our vote of the standout star this weekend.
Making their second week in a row is VVV goalkeeper Lars Unnerstall, Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt and AZ Alkmaar pair Thomas Ouwejan and Teun Koopmeiners. Joining his AZ teammates is Ousamma Idrissi who notched two goals, as did Kristoffer Peterson who guided Heracles to defeat ADO 4-2 on Saturday.
Hirving Lozano, arguably last years’s MVP, grabbed a slot in our team by scoring the opener in PSV’s 2-1 away to Fortuna Sittard.
Rounding out the team is Sean Klaiber, goal-scoring defender from FC Utrecht and Jens Toornstra of Feyenoord, both helped their teams to wins.
