Mark van Bommel frustrated significantly from the way in which a leader PSV Sunday crashed in the top match against Ajax (3-1). The coach saw his team and at times dominate in the Johan Cruijff ArenA, and find that the Locals more money.
“I take no one’s blame, because we have just very well done”, said Van Bommel after the second PSV defeat of this Premier league season against FOX Sports. “In the first half, Ajax have no real chance, and after a rest we had the control. This is, therefore, an unnecessary defeat.”
PSV went in with a 1-0-lagging behind the rest in by an own goal from Daniel Schwaab, but it came after a rest back in the match. The visitors were in the second half with a man more on the field by a direct red card for right back Noussair Mazraoui and De Jong headed home straight after the 1-1.
Surprisingly enough, it was the then Ajax that have twice scored in the remainder of the contest. Dusan Tadic shot in the 72nd minute on a penalty kick in and David Neres decided the match in stoppage time in Amsterdam advantage.
“After the 1-1 we were looking for the lead, because our idea was to win and those opportunities were there,” analyzed Van Bommel. “We had to rest even the control over the match, but we lost by two moments where we hit weggaven. I can here a nice story to hang up, but we are with empty hands.”

Luuk de Jong found the PSV’ers too eager
Captain Luuk de Jong felt that there was much more in it for PSV. The striker, who in the ArenA for his 22nd goal of the Eredivisie-season, drew found his team after the equalizer, perhaps a little too overconfident.
“After the 1-1, we all believe in it and when we are just a bit too much forward and walked,” said The Young against FOX Sports. “We were a bit too eager, because Ajax can also with ten man football. After the 2-1 we tried to do everything to be on the same level, but unfortunately.”
By the victory of Ajax is the advantage of PSV at the Amsterdam only two points, but according to Young there is no man overboard. “Of course, here we are sick to death of, but we are still top and have everything in their own hands.”
PSV the lead in the next round or temporarily lose, because Ajax is in the midweekse round earlier in action. The team of trainer Erik ten Hag plays Wednesday, an away game against FC Emmen, while PSV a day later PEC Zwolle will receive.
