A Lucas Piazon double and an injury time goal from Patrick van Aanholt sealed all three points for Vitesse Arnhem with a 3-2 defeat of Heerenveen on Saturday.

Fellow Chelsea loanee Christian Atsu also joined the duo in the starting lineup for Vitesse in a game that was dominated by Heerenveen as the home side stretched their lead to two goals to nil after fifty minutes of play.

Up stepped the 19-year old Brazilian Piazon, who is enjoying a successful loan spell so far at the Eredivisie club, instigated the comeback when he produced a smart turn and finish just inside the box as Heerenveen started to hit back.

With 18 minutes remaining, Piazon netted the equalizer as his free-kick evaded everyone in the box and ended up in the bottom corner of the net.

The Chelsea effect didn't stop there though as three minutes into stoppage time, Dutch defender van Aanholt scored with a fantastic strike past goalkeeper Piet Velthuizen, with Piazon supplying the assist.
