Steven Bergwijn is Eredivisie's Player of the Month Published on 2/27/2018

PSV attacker Steven Bergwijn has been named the Eredivisie Player of the month (February). From the match data statistics of Opta Sports the 20-year-old attacker appeared to have performed the best, followed by Fredrik Midtsjø (AZ) and Angeliño (PSV).

Last Sunday Bergwijn was involved in all three goals of PSV against Feyenoord. PSV took the lead on 23 minutes when Santiago Arias was left free to head in Steven Bergwijn's cross. Ten minutes later it was 2-0, as Gaston Pereiro set Bergwijn through on goal and the winger dinked the ball past Brad Jones and into the net. In the second half Pereiro made it 3-1 from close range after Brad Jones could only parry Bergwijn's shot. 

Earlier this month, Bergwijn was also decisive in the match against Sparta Rotterdam, by striking twice (1-2). Together with the games against SC Heerenveen and Excelsior Rotterdam, the attacker created 10 chances and delivered 10 shots on goal. 

The Eredivisie Player of the Month is determined on the basis of match data of Opta Sports. This years first Player of the Month was Hirving Lozano (PSV Eindhoven), followed by Steven Berghuis (Feyenoord Rotterdam), Gastón Pereiro (PSV Eindhoven), Zakaria Labyad (FC Utrecht), again Steven Beghuis (Feyenoord Rotterdam) and Jonas Svensson (AZ Alkmaar).
