The hosts took the lead after 21 minutes through Nick Viergever but Memphis Depay hit an equaliser with a stunning free-kick in the 35th minute.

The two sides remained level at a goal apiece until the 57th minute when Jóhannsson secured all three points for AZ.

Joshua Brenet mistimed his header on a loose ball 25 yards from goal and Jóhannsson, who was behind the PSV defender, seized the opportunity.

The 22-year-old celandic-American chested the ball down and struck a dipping volley on the bounce that beat goalkeeper Przemysław Tytoń.

It was Jóhannsson's second goal in as many games against PSV and fifth league goal of the season.
