Ajax remain top of the Eredivisie ladder after beating Heerenveen while PSV eased past RKC Waalwijk.
Goals either side of half time from Tom De Mul and Wesley Sneijder were enough to give the Amsterdamers the points at Abe Lenstra Stadion.
PSV stay just two points off the pace following a 3-0 away win over RKC Waalwijk.
Following a goalless first half, goals after the interval from Arouna Kone and Ibrahim Afellay put the high-flyers in control.
Kone's second and PSV's third in injury time ensured the champions bagged their eighth league win from 10 matches.
Sparta Rotterdam have been cast three points adrift at the foot of the table following ADO Den Haag's 2-0 success over 10-men Heracles.
ADO entered the game with only five goals from their opening nine matches, but second half efforts from Santi Kolk and Eljero Elia secured a long-awaited victory.
Any hopes Heracles harboured of getting back into the contest evaporated when Ramos Everton was sent off shortly after Kolk opened the scoring.
Vitesse Arnhem missed the chance to leapfrog Excelsior in the Eredivisie table after conceding late in a 2-2 draw.
Anduele Prijor opened the scoring for the visitors after 29 minutes and soon after Danko Lazovic doubled their lead.
However, Lazovic went from hero to zero when he collected a red card just before half time.
Luigi Bruins pulled one back from the penalty spot and just when it looked like they would miss out Johan Voskamp struck in injury time to salvage a point.
