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.
KENNETH VERMEER – FEYENOORD: Deserved clean sheet that protected all three points for Feyenoord against an persistent Willem II side.
SANTIAGO ARIAS – PSV: The Colombian faces a tough test against former team-mate Memphis Depay on Tuesday night but he prepared superbly in the 6-0 win over Cambuur with an assist.
SEAN KLAIBER – FC UTRECHT: Commanding display at right-back in Utrecht’s 2-1 win over Vitesse. Great attacking outing.
