Graziano Pelle: Scored the winner against PSV to send Feyenoord third

Tim Matavz went close before Jeremain Lens gave PSV the lead in the 34th minute, rounding off a fluent counter-attack.

But Ruben Schaken equalised after an exchange of passes with Marcelo (47) and Graziano Pelle's shot on the turn (68) earned three points for the hosts.

The result saw Feyenoord close to within a point of second-placed Ajax, who needed a late Lasse Schone goal to salvage a 1-1 draw against ADO Den Haag.

Niklas Moisander's error allowed Tjaronn Chery to put ADO ahead against the run of play on the half-hour but Schone struck back five minutes from time.

Sixth-placed FC Utrecht beat Roda JC 4-0 after their relegation-threatened opponents were reduced to 10 men inside the first 20 minutes.

Abel Tamata's dismissal and Jacob Mulenga's successful penalty swung the game Utrecht's way from an early stage and Jan Wuytens (27) gave them a 2-0 half-time lead.

Thomas Oar struck shortly after the interval before Mulenga rounded off the scoring.

NAC Breda clambered above weekend opponents AZ Alkmaar with a 1-0 victory on the road.

A solitary strike from Nemanja Guedlj with just six minutes on the clock was enough to collect three points for the visitors.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
