The Boeren are currently third in the table, a point behind Vitesse in second and three points behind leaders Ajax. Opponents Utrecht sit 10th going into the game.
It has been an impressive start to the season for PSV under new boss Roger Schmidt, as they have won seven and lost just one of their 11 league games so far.
Then on Thursday night they ran out comfortable 4-0 winners over Cypriot side Omonia in the Europa League – Donyell Malen, Denzel Dumfries and Piroe getting on the scoresheet – to secure top spot in their group.
PSV have a perfect home record in the league this season – winning all five of their games in Eindhoven so far, scoring 12 goals and conceding just once.
That is not good news for Utrecht, who have an atrocious record away at PSV in the Eredivisie. They have picked up just five points from their last 38 games at The Philips Stadion since they last recorded a league victory there in 1980.
Domstedelingen have just two wins to their name this season, and both of those came on home turf under previous manager John van den Brom, who left to join Belgian side Genk at the start of November. New boss Rene Hake is winless in his first four matches.
They have drawn each of their last three games 1-1, most recently against ADO Den Haag last weekend. They had 20 shots, and took the lead just after half time through Justin Hoogma, but had to settle for a point when Michiel Kramer equalised late on.
While Utrecht have not yet won on the road, they have only lost once – drawing their other four away games.
Having finished in the top six in each of the last five seasons, supporters will be underwhelmed to currently find themselves in 10th.

We say: PSV Eindhoven 2-0 FC Utrecht
All the signs point towards a PSV win in this game – the league table, form guide and of course Utrecht's staggeringly bad record at the Philips Stadion. It should be a fairly comfortable three points for Schmidt's side.
