Defoe warns Manchester giants

Jermain Defoe has warned both Manchester clubs that Tottenham are thriving on the pressure of maintaining their outside chance for Premier League glory.

Tottenham have been in outstanding form this campaign, and Harry Redknapp's men are currently three points behind second-placed Manchester United boasting a game in hand.

It has been suggested the unfamiliarity of pushing for the title could see a wobble from Spurs, but forward Defoe, whose strike defeated West Brom on Tuesday, has talked up the confidence within his side's camp.

"I'm loving the pressure," he told the Daily Mirror. "It's like playing tournament football for England, when everyone is pinning their hopes on you to make the breakthrough.

"It means I have to make sure my preparation is right, that my attitude is right. Because I know how much it means to so many people.

"Everyone saw the tension at our place on Tuesday. The way that the fans, my team-mates and the manager and his staff celebrated when I got that goal and I enjoy being able to make that happen.

"That result on Tuesday shows that we are well and truly in the title race. The lads showed so much character to keep going when West Brom made it so hard for us.

"City and United know we are a threat, and with every game that we keep on winning we can put pressure on them to keep winning."

"We don't feel negative pressure. We are enjoying it. But at the same time we know that it may not come again in the way that it has. This is such a good opportunity for us. We want to take it with both hands."
