Erik ten Hag’s side, who lost 1-0 to Liverpool in the Champions League in midweek, returned to victory with some authority on Saturday afternoon
Jurgen Ekkelenkamp gave the championship to the away team after 13 minutes, Lassina Traore adding two and Dusan Tadic another before half-time
Things only got worse for VVV after the split with Christian Kum sent off in the 52nd minute After being reduced to 10 men, the home side fell apart, conceding four goals in five minutes
Traoré got his hat trick in the 54th minute before Anthony, in the 55th, Ekkelenkamp, in the 57th, and Daley Blind in the 59th minute completed the appalling seven minutes for Venlo
Traoré added another in the 65th minute, then Klaas-Jan Huntelaar then added two goals in two minutes before Lisandro Martinez made 12 two minutes later, with another 12 minutes to go
The Amsterdam players relaxed slightly towards the end of the game before Traore caught his fifth of the game with three minutes remaining, to finish the absolute inspiration
While no one at Venlo feels too good about themselves tonight, you’ve got to hand it over to whoever managed their Twitter account for the game, just to have managed to keep a sense of humor on it all.
Ajax, who have now scored 18 goals in their last 180 minutes of league football, have now passed rivals PSV at the top of the table, although the Eindhoven side now have a game in hand
VVV are in the middle of the table but the loss means they haven’t won in their previous five games, with their only victory coming on the opening day of the season
There was no winner in Eredivisie last season, as the league ended when the Covid-19 pandemic struck with Ajax at points level with AZ Alkmaar after 25 games at the time
