Teams gunning for us - Jamie

Jamie O'Hara has warned that teams will be determined to take our scalp as we sit proudly at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

We've put together our best start since the double year with three wins out of three against Liverpool, Hull and West Ham to top the table on goal difference from Chelsea.

Birmingham City are next up at the Lane and Jamie says we'll have to deal with the additional pressure of being top.

"Teams will be gunning for us," said Jamie, who made a goalscoring return to the side in Wednesday's Carling Cup win at Doncaster. "It's what the likes of United and Chelsea have to deal with all the time and we have to deal with it as well.

"We're winning games, putting in good performances, everyone is talking about us and we have to work hard and continue doing the things we've done from the start of the season."

Jamie was in fine form alongside central midfield partner Tom Huddlestone, also on the scoresheet, in the 5-1 victory at the Keepmoat Stadium.

It was Jamie's first start of the campaign. "You've got to be ready to take your chances," he said. "It's always hard sitting on the bench, it can be frustrating but to go out there and play, to win 5-1 and put in a decent performance, that's what you have to do to give the manager a problem.

"All I can do is work hard - it's tough at times but that's all part of being at a club like Tottenham."
