Looking back at the Sampdoria game he said: “We played with a three at the back and five in midfield, then we went to 4-3-3 with the personnel in the second half.
“Two formations which we’ve worked on in training and two formations which I think has worked.
He told the official site: “We were very fluid in the first half, found the spare man in the hole between the lines and got at them.
“We got the ball wide and in the box – I think the ball into the box could be a little better.
“We passed it, everybody wanted the ball, which was great and we created a tempo which was the best we’ve had in pre-season.”
