Ibrahim Afellay returns to the starting line-up when PSV entertain De Graafschap at the Philips Stadium tonight, with a 7.45pm kick-off. The midfielder was ruled out of PSV's past two games, but has returned to full fitness. PSV coach Huub Stevens plays two in attack, with Amrabat partnering Lazovic and Dzsudzsák providing support.
Salcido and Marcellis at the heart of defence
Stevens pairs Carlos Salcido and Dirk Marcellis at the heart of his back four. Jérémie Bréchet and Edison Méndez have withdrawn from the squad due to injuries, but Stijn Wuytens is fit enough to start. Ibrahim Afellay makes a comeback to the team and is set to turn provider for the forwards Dzsudzsák, Lazovic and Amrabat. Danny Koevermans, who scored a consolation in PSV's 3-1 defeat at Anfield, is dropped to the bench. Otman Bakkal, who broke the deadlock last week when he set up Wuytens to score the only goal in PSV's 1-0 win over FC Volendam, also starts on the bench.
PSV starting line-up:
Isaksson, Kromkamp, Marcellis, Salcido, Pieters, Simons, Wuytens, Afellay, Dzsudzsák, Amrabat and Lazovic.
Substitutes: Cássio Ramos, Maza, Zonneveld, Koevermans, Culina, Nijland and Bakkal
