It’s definitely different,” Ten Hag said on the challenges that Tottenham pose. “I think it’s a really big compliment the way they played, so he (Ange 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 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.”
