Christian Atsu scored for Vitesse Arnhem.

Ghana winger Christian Atsu opened the scoring for Vitesse Arnhem in the 2-1 win over PEC Zwollo in the Dutch Eredivisie on Saturday night.

The 22-year-old, on loan from Chelsea, cut in from the left before shooting past goalkeeper Diederik Boer with his weaker right foot on three minutes.

Atsu has now scored two goals in 11 league appearances for the club.

The home team equalized through Guyon Fernandez seven minutes later at the IJsseldelta Stadion.

But Vitesse scored the match winner in the last minute of regulation time through Patrick van Aanholt, another player on loan from Chelsea.

Vitesse Arnhem have now moved to the summit of table but could be toppled if Ajax win against PSV on Sunday.
