Twente vs Ajax build-up, pre-match team news & previous lineups:
Consistency has been a major issue for Twente this season and goes a long way to explaining their sixth-placed position in the table, despite pulling off results against Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord, all of whom sit above them. Their victory over Ajax, for example, was sandwiched between defeats to relegation-threatened RKC Waalwijk and AZ Alkmaar.
The Tukkers will therefore be looking to put paid to their inconsistent tendencies and win back-to-back games for only the second time this season. But in Ajax, they face the reigning champions and a side who have just shattered the Eredivisie transfer record, recently signing Sebastien Haller for an unprecedented £20m+ fee.
Haller helped Ten Hag’s men overcome a two-goal deficit to salvage a point against title challengers PSV at the weekend with an assist, which marked their second successive draw. The capital club will be desperate to right the wrongs from their defeat to Twente last month, as well as avoiding a third straight winless game.
- Twente (vs Emmen): Drommel; Ebuehi, Pleguezuelo, Pierie, Oosterwolde; Roemeratoe, Zerrouki, Bosch; Cerny, Ilic, Menig.
- Ajax (vs PSV): Onana; Mazraoui, Schuurs, Blind, Tagliafico; Gravenberch, Klaassen; Antony, Promes, Tadic; Labyad.
Kik Pierie and Danilo, both on loan from Ajax, are available to play for Twente later this week and featured in the 2-1 win last month, but club captain Wout Brama faces a late fitness test. For Ajax, Brian Brobbey, Lassina Traore and David Neres are nearing returns to the first-team fold though Thursday could prove too soon.
Players to watch:
Twente: Renowned for their talent-producing exploits, Ajax have just started to up the ante when it comes to importing players with potential, recently tapping in to the South American market. David Neres and Antony have proven inspired signings, while Danilo, currently on loan for Twente, is also proving a shrewd piece of business. The 21-year-old signed from Santos in 2017 and netted 19 goals for Jong Ajax in 2018/19. However, this season he is enjoying his first considerable foray in the Eredivisie, and flourishing. The Brazil U23 international has netted 11 goals and registered five assists for Twente in just 15 Eredivisie games, and could leave his parent club red-faced if he produces the goods on Thursday.
Ajax: West Ham fans will be interested to see how Sebastien Haller gets on back in the Dutch top-flight. The Ivory Coast international largely flattered to deceive in claret and blue colours, but then, David Moyes never truly played the forward to his strengths. He rose to prominence as part of Frankfurt’s ‘magic triangle’, registering nine Bundesliga assists in 2018/19, but in east London he was tasked with leading the line as a more traditional No. 9. The frontline systems were almost chalk and cheese between the Hammers and Frankfurt. At Ajax he will once again be part of a more ‘fluid’ frontline and provided greater support up front, which could see the out-of-sorts marksman rediscover his spark.
