PSV vs HRN Dream11: PSV Eindhoven will be looking to end four-game winless run when they host Heerenveen in the matchday week 14 at Philips Stadion, in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The 24-time English winners are 3rd on the points table and are already 14 points behind leaders and defending champions Ajax. That's a huge gap, possibly unbridgeable, for the Erik tan Haag's team is too good to let that lead through their hands. The best PSV can hope is to improve results and play with a bit more consistency. They should aim for the 2nd place, which is currently occupied by AZ Alkmaar, with 8 points gap between them.
As mentioned above, PSV are without a win in the last four league games, three of which ended in defeats for them. But one important point to note is that PSV opened the new season with a nine-game unbeaten run, winning 7 times in those games. So it has been a sudden loss of form, but the squad is good enough to recover from that.
Heerenveen, meanwhile, have turned the corner around in the last two months or so, and are heading North on the table. They are on a seven-game unbeaten run, with their last defeat coming more than two months ago. They have won our times in that period and now sit 7th on the points table, just three points adrift of their next opponents.
Donyell Malen: He is a doubt, but if he starts, he is a good value for the captain option, He has scored 10 league goals this season.
Denzel Dumfries: The right-back has been in phenomenal form all season, and has three goals to his name.
Chidera Ejuke: Leads the goal-scoring chart for Heerenveen with six goals, while striker Jens Odgaard is a good option as well.
Hosts: PSV Eindhoven
Match Timing: November 24, @07:00 PM
