    AMSTERDAM — PEC Zwolle ended PSV Eindhoven's perfect start to the season by winning 3-1 to go level on points with PSV at the top of the Eredivisie on Saturday.

    Luuk de Jong gave PSV the lead with a 32nd-minute penalty but Jesper Drost levelled five minutes before halftime, and Joost Broerse — who gave away the penalty — made it 2-1 for Zwolle in the 64th with a curling free kick. Ben Rienstra completed the scoring in the 87th.

    Netherlands winger Memphis Depay, the league top-scorer, limped off in Zwolle with an apparent groin injury after 15 minutes.

    Defending champion Ajax struggled past last-place Heracles Almelo 2-1 in Amsterdam. Arek Milik, the Polish striker on loan from Bayer Leverkusen, struck in the first and last minutes of the first half before Wout Weghorst pulled back a late goal for the visitors.
