Bernardo Silva has welcomed the pressure as title-chasing Manchester City prepare for a critical derby at Manchester United this week.
Wednesday's trip to Old Trafford appears to be the biggest hurdle left facing City as they chase another Premier League crown following Saturday's tense 1-0 win over Tottenham.
Much has been made over whether United fans might actually prefer loathed neighbours City to win the title rather than arch-rivals Liverpool, but Silva does not expect that to affect players' thinking.

United are in a tight battle themselves for a top-four spot and Silva thinks they will be just as hungry for the points.
The Portuguese midfielder said: 'We are so happy with the win (on Saturday) and now it's on to another tough one against Manchester United which I think will be crucial for the title.
'It's a big game for us, a big game for them. They need points to be in the top four and we need them to fight for the title.
