Utrecht ended up comfortably defeating Den Haag, with two of the goals scored by right-back Sean Klaiber.

He would double the scoreline eight minutes into the second half, making it 2-0, after sending a fizzing cross-cum-shot across the penalty box into the left corner. Whether it was meant as a cross or a strike on goal is up for debate, but either way it wrongfooted the goalkeeper, who weakly allowed it past him into the corner.

There was no doubt about his intentions for his second goal, though, as he rifled a belter on a shot into the left corner from a tight angle down the right channel six minutes from time.

He was excellent apart from his goals, too, completing 74/79 attempted passes and enjoying 100 touches which was the fifth-most of anyone in the league in this round of fixtures.

SECOND: Klaiber has team-mate Simon Gustafson (8.6) to thank, at least in part, for his two goals as it was the attacking midfielder who assisted both his goals.

THIRD: Steven Berghuis (8.3) was key for Feyenoord in the 3-2 win against Heracles, assisting the first goal and making seven ball recoveries.
