Tottenham can upset AC Milan with pace and Premier League intensity, says Jermain Defoe.

Tottenham can upset AC Milan with pace and Premier League intensity, says Jermain Defoe.

Harry Redknapp’s men are the underdogs going into their Champions League last-16 clash against the current Serie A leaders.

Ahead of Tuesday’s trip to the San Siro, England hitman Defoe, 28, said: “If you look at the Champions League and European football it’s similar to football at international level.

“It’s a bit slower and the teams like to pass and have more time on the ball. Look at Serie A and again it’s slower compared to the Premier League.

“So, if we approach these games against Milan with Premier League intensity, we will create a lot of chances – and we can win those games.”
