Maybe a bit out of form, but mostly his competitor Daley Blind from Ajax had a great spell of form lately. He will now play with U21, will make his debut there probably. Willems is in my opinion one of the brightest talents we have. Still only 18, only 17 at time of the EC2012, and physically improving a lot. Technically very sounds, but defensively still prone to errors. Would do him good if he stays for a year or 3/4 at PSV and play 150+- matches until he leaves.
Standout players this season have been:
Forwards: Bony, Pelle, Finnbogason, Boetius
Midfielders: Maher, Strootman, Tadic, Clasie, Vilhena
Defenders: Alderweireld, Kalas, Van Der Hoorn, Willems, Blind, Van Rhijn
GK: Velthuizen, Vermeer, Zoet
