CHERRIES striker Benik Afobe insists the pressure is firmly on Tottenham ahead of the teams' hotly-anticipated clash on Saturday.

The Dorset club will hope to become the fourth Premier League team this season to stop Spurs from taking maximum points at their temporary Wembley home (3pm).

Afobe, who made his case for a starting berth by hitting a hat-trick in the Premier League Cup last week, is under no illusions over how tough the task will be.

But the former Wolves hitman believes his side can play without pressure at the iconic venue.

Afobe told the Daily Echo: "Tottenham are the toughest team I've played against in the Premier League but anything can happen.

"They are going to be under pressure at their home stadium and we have nothing to lose.

"Sometimes when you play with no fear and no pressure, it works out better for you so, hopefully, that can be the case for us.

"Everyone keeps saying Spurs are not doing well at home but every time you go to Wembley, it's like a cup final or a semi-final.

"Every team that plays against Spurs there, it's their cup final, especially the teams who haven't been in the FA Cup final, League Cup final or the Champions League.

"For a team like us, it's going to be a great day out but we are going to, hopefully, keep Tottenham's home run of not doing too well going.

"When we have played them in the past two years, they have been tough games. When you see them on TV, it's a tough game.

"They have got world-class players and are in the Champions League, so they have improved a lot in recent years.

"But we have nothing to lose, we will go there with a game plan and, hopefully, we can cause an upset."
