Both teams have made a positive start to the campaign with the visitors currently in fourth place, while the home side are two places below in sixth.
Willem II were beaten away from home for the first time this season following a 3-2 defeat versus Heracles at the Erve Asito on October 2.
Fred Grim's men showed great resolve to come behind from two goals down thanks to Mats Kohlert and Max Svensson who cancelled out earlier strikes from Rai Vloet and Delano Burgzorg, only for Ismail Azzaoui to decide the game in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
As a result, the Superkruiken have lost ground on a couple of teams in and around, but they remain just three points off the top of the table.
Lying in store next for the Tilburg-based club is a clash versus an opposing side who have come out on top in 11 of the last 20 meetings dating back to 2008.
After seeing their six-game unbeaten streak come to an end last time out, Sunday's visitors go in search of an immediate response to lift the mood once again.
Twente were denied a fifth straight victory following a 1-1 stalemate versus Groningen at the Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium two Fridays ago.
Off the back of one point from their first three games, the Tukkers have now picked up 13 of the subsequent 15 available and have surged up the log consequently.
They remain the only team to have denied Ajax all three points on home turf and will be confident of picking up another feather in the cap in front of their fans.
The home side will also have to make do with the absence of 21-year-old defender Kik Pierie who has been nursing a back problem since April.
FC Twente possible starting lineup:
Unnerstall; Sadilek, Hilgers, Propper, Everink; Brama, Zerrouki, Vlap; Rots, Van Wolfswinkel, Limnios
Willem II possible starting lineup:
Wellenreuther; Owusu, Jenssen, Bergstrom, Kohn; Saglam, Saddiki, Llonch; Kohlert, Okyere Wriedt, Nunnely
We say: FC Twente 2-1 Willem II
After a rough start to the season, Twente have turned a corner in recent weeks and now have an opportunity to move ahead of Willem II, who have been superb since the opening weekend. We expect a close and entertaining contest with a narrow victory for the home side at the end of the 90 minutes.
