After a two-week international break PSV return to domestic action, when they entertain VVV-Venlo at the Philips Stadium on Saturday night. PSV head coach Ronald Koeman had a near-full strength squad available to him at the Friday morning training session, while Farfán and Salcido return to Eindhoven later this afternoon. Ronald Koeman was relieved all players had come through unscathed.

Koeman has named Marcellis and Zeefuik in his nineteen-man squad for Saturday's match at the Philips Stadion. Väyrynen, De Jong, Da Costa, Rajkovic and Cássio Ramos are all ruled out through injuries. Koeman will decide on Saturday which player he will drop from the squad for the match against last-placed VVV-Venlo.
During the weekly media briefing on Friday afternoon Koeman was not anxious to look ahead yet at next Tuesday's UEFA Champions League clash with Fenerbahçe. 'A win on Saturday will boost our confidence, but actually Tuesday night's game will be a different game altogether. We may rest some players that have been away on international duty, but I can't say much about that. I will first talk to the players. I don't want to look ahead too much. We will take each game as it comes along.'
Koeman was relieved all players had come through the international matches unscathed. 'I am glad they are all available after the international break. And as far as I know, Farfán as well as Salcido have not sustained any injuries either, which is a good thing.' Koeman's team met VVV-Venlo in a pre-season friendly and the PSV head coach was impressed by their performance. 'They give youngsters a chance to shine. We know what to expect after we met them in summer. We always want to play attacking football.'
