Erik Ten Hag has faced Graham Potter in the Premier League this season but the former Ajax believes the fight is between the team and not the managers.

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has faced Graham Potter this season when the Chelsea’s manager was at Brighton.

Ten Hag lost hist first game of the Premier League at Old Trafford to Potter’s Brighton before replacing Tuchel at Stamford bridge.

Manchester United will travel to play Chelsea in the Premier League after an incredible performance against Tottenham.

When asked in the prematch conference how he feels to face the manager he has faced before Ten Hag claims it’s a different team and the fight is between the teams and not the managers.

“It’s nothing, I think from that game. It’s a different game , different team. Yes, some different players, we are further in the process so I don’t take – of course, I know more about him and the first time he knew maybe more about me.

“And that is maybe an advantage because he maybe know more about Manchester United in the first game, so now I’m longer in the UK – in the Premier League – so tomorrow, good fight. But it is not a fight between managers, it is a fight between teams: Chelsea, Manchester United.”

United have defeated Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham in the Premier League at Old Trafford this season but lost to City away from home, but Ten Hag believes the feeling is still the same as they feel strong.

“For me it’s never an issue, away or at home, because the pitch is even big. t’s 11 against 11, there’s a ref, so it’s all the same. And, also away we always have a lot of support from out fans, so we are really happy with that. We feel strong and we are looking forward to that game tomorrow.”
