Eran Zahavi returns to starting XI against Ajax

PSV take on Ajax in the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam. Eran Zahavi returns the starting line-up, partnering Donyell Malen up front. Mario Götze has been ruled out of Sunday afternoon’s clash, but several players, including Mauro Junior, Ryan Thomas, Érick Gutiérrez and Marco van Ginkel, have shaken off injuries and are called up to the match squad.

Jorrit Hendrix has not received a call-up. PSV can leapfrog Ajax and move to the top of the table, provided they claim all three points in Amsterdam. They also look to score their 5000th goal since the introduction of the Dutch Eredivisie. Referee Björn Kuipers has been chosen to take charge of the game. Kick-off is at 16.45.

 This is how PSV line up:
Mvogo; Dumfries, Teze, Boscagli, Max; Rosario, Sangaré; Ihattaren, Gakpo; Malen, Zahavi
Unnerstall, Müller, Viergever, Baumgartl, Fein, Van Ginkel, Gutiérrez, Mauro, Madueke, Piroe, Thomas
