Ten Hag ready for Spurs clash
Erik ten Hag seems to have a plan for how to get the better of Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham side.
Manchester United welcome Spurs to Old Trafford on Sunday in what should be an enthralling match up.
And ten Hag has been full of praise for the north London outfit who beat United 2-0 in the reverse fixture back in August.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, he said: “It’s definitely different. I think it’s a really big compliment the way they played, so he [Postecoglou] changed the environment there.
“They play really proactive, it’s very enjoyable to watch them, with a lot of dynamics. Very proactive. And they combine it with good results.”
But ten Hag is confident that his side can turn over Spurs this time after drawing positives from the last meeting.
He added: “But also, when we played them over there, I think we can take belief out of that. I would say, especially in the first 35 minutes, we dominated them.
“And we should have gone in the lead. But we didn’t, so we have to make our own luck and take control of the game, and then we have to finish the chances.”
