I don’t assume we’ve actually raised our stage as a lot as we must always right here.
“Away from house’s utterly totally different as a result of regardless that there’s no followers, the strain is type of off, the strain’s all the time on house groups to make the sport and attempt to win the sport and it most likely fits us a bit higher to play on the counter assault.

“However house or away we are going to go, like we all the time do to win each recreation. We don’t go anyplace to attract, we don’t go anyplace to vary our type or change our techniques, we go to dominate possession and to create probabilities and win video games and we’ll be doing the identical.”
