It's squeaky bum time for...

Tottenham Hotspur

Harry Redknapp's side have been hogging the plaudits this week, moving level with Manchester United and three points behind leaders City – with the chance to close the gap should they beat Wolves today.

If the record books are a guide, Jermain Defoe could prove a lethal weapon. The forward has struggled for gametime but remains top scorer, and stuck two beauties past Wolves last season. Redknapp has done his best to talk up Tottenham's title chances, but Wolves claimed an unlikely win at White Hart Lane in 2009 and any slip-up will bring all the 'shaky Spurs' headlines out of the attic.
