What has Erik ten Hag said?

Erik ten Hag spoke about Newcastle’s alleged time-wasting during his pre-match press conference, saying: “Concern, we know they delay, yeah. It’s something that is what the refereeing doesn’t want, they want to have tempo in the game, that is the aim of the PL, so they have to be consistent to let the game go, so do and act what the policy is.

“It’s about us, like we did in the two previous games, it’s about us, as every game, we want to dictate, to control the game but we play against a good opponent, we’re aware of that. They’ve had a great season with their manager, way of play. It’s a team that is really hard to beat. We are looking forward to the challenge and the evidence is we can beat them.”
