PSV Eindhoven rolled out comfortable 6-0 winners over lower-table batlers Excelsior, confirming their spot on top of the tree.

After 15 games PSV, under new coach and former Socceroos assistant Mark van Bommel, have a whopping 14 wins and one loss.

It speaks dividends of the Eredivisie's big three dominance that this incredible form only puts them two points clear of Ajax, with Feyenoord a further eight points back.

Sainsbury has only played 213 minutes of Eredivisie football this season, playing the full 90 minutes just four times for his club across all competitions.

Following some shaky displays in the Socceroos' recent friendlies - especially considering he's tipped to take the captain's mantle following the Asian Cup - he drew some criticism over his move to PSV.

Although Sainsbury certainly isn't the worst off, with Behich only playing a lacklustre 70 minutes of Eredivisie football this season, a huge drop off from his talismanic status at Bursaspor.

The two Aussies' Asian Cup campaign kicks off against Jordan on December 6.
