At the press conference, Erik Ten Hag spoke about the match with Leeds United, which has many problems this season. Jesse Marsch is no longer the coach of Leeds, and such a change can often mean the 'rebirth' of the team. They should be afraid of that at United.
‘It's about the match of the Roses,’ said Ten Hag, as quoted by dailymail.co.uk ‘It's definitely a big game in this part of England, it's a big game for us. We know we have Manchester City and Liverpool, but for our fans this means so much.
Our players are aware of that and know what to do.’
Manchester United plays great at home and they look invincible. Erik ten Hag expects equally good games away from his team. This season they show that there is no team that poses a threat to them.
Their priority remains the TOP 4, and there are also theoretical chances for the title if their two rivals; City and Arsenal start playing badly. However, it is hard to expect that. ‘It was one of our aims this season as a part of the process to restore Man United to the (top).
It's a part of it. Home is good but in away games we can show even more personality and be more convincing. That's the next step. We have to make the same personality on the pitch as we have at home. But I'm really happy with the process at home.
It's great to have that connection at Old Trafford, but when we play away a lot of fans are following us.' Erik ten Hag believes that his team can do a lot. There is a great atmosphere in the team. You can feel how much the Dutchman influenced everyone.
'Nothing changes, the pitch is the same size. So in that fact, we can grow. We still have steps to make but happy with that as well.’
