When asked by Robson to pinpoint a specific area that can be improved, Ten Hag replied: “The timing. When you start the press. For instance, I see still switches we can avoid and we can prepare a better press.
“And I think, also on the ball, we play well but you see, in the end, when it’s 2-0 or 3-0 up, the belief is increasing. And then, also on the ball, we can delay and we can postpone and we can fight opponents so they come out and we can speed up.
“The 2-0 [goal], especially, was a great goal.”
