Til, signed from Feyenoord, headed home two first half goals and added a third in the 69th minute as PSV upset the champions at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

Ajax, with Alfred Schreuder as their new coach in their first game since Ten Hag’s departure, had taken a 15th minute lead through their new signing Steven Bergwijn, who joined from Tottenham Hotspur, but were 2-1 down at the break.

Brazilian winger Antony made it 2-2 nine minutes into the second half before Cody Gakpo and Til handed PSV a 4-2 advantage with 20 minutes to play.

A cracking left footed shot from Mohamed Kudus pulled the score back to 4-3 in the 72nd minute but Ajax were then reduced to 10 men when substitute Calvin Bassey, another new player, was sent off in the 78th minute.

PSV finished off the goal feast with a stoppage time effort from the 19-year-old Xavi Simons, signed from Paris St Germain.

The new Dutch league starts next weekend.
