Percy Tau played for the duration as Anderlecht cruised to a 4-2 win over Waasland-Beveren in a Belgian First Division A encounter on Saturday.

Tau made his fifth appearance for the Purple and White at the Freethielstadion but he could not add to his tally of two goals so far this season.

Goals from Adrien Trebel, Jeremy Doku, Yari Verschaeren and Lukas Nmecha secured maximum points for Vincent Kompany's men despite late efforts for Din Sula and Daan Heymans for the hosts.

During the encounter, Tau made the third-highest number of key passes, behind Albert Lokonga (four) and Yari Verschaeren (three).

The 26-year-old also played a defensive role in the game and he made three tackles in total.

Saturday’s victory shot Anderlecht to third in the Belgian First Division A table, level on 12 points with second-placed Beerschot while they are six points behind leaders Sporting Charleroi.

After playing two games without scoring, Tau will be hoping to find the back of the net when Kompany's side welcome KAS Eupen to Lotto Park on September 27.
