"Head-to-head goal difference" covers "just head-to-head"
"Just head-to-head" presumably means for example, winning both games or drawing one and winning another, no matter the score.
But "head-to-head goal difference" covers that already:
Win both games and you have a better GD no matter what
Win one game and draw the other and you have a better GD no matter what
So saying "head-to-head goal difference" accounts for "just head-to-head" already plus gives you more detail of who has the tiebreaker if you have one win and one loss.
Right now it's up to the author.
We always cite the source so people can make their choices about whether to believe the source or not. Personally there’s a couple of sources I don’t use, or if I ever do, I say it with the context of "this is a tabloid, but here is what they are saying." I think going forward we might have to put a big asterisk if we see an interview from The Mirror, unfortunately.
