Tottenham ace Gareth Bale says he doesn't allow expectations from fans to weigh him down in games.

Winger Bale scored 26 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions for Spurs last season, but insisted he does not feel any pressure to perform.

He told Esquire: "I don't feel any pressure. If I'm the one scoring all the goals and winning us the games, then I just carry on as normal. I don't feel any different."
