Tunnel vision is the mantra from Norwich City midfielder Nathan Redmond for the Premier League run-in.

Norwich host Manchester United and Watford before a final day trip to Everton and the England Under-21 international is in no doubt what is required.

City can move out of the bottom three with a win over the Red Devils on Saturday before both Newcastle and Sunderland kick-off later in the afternoon.

'We've got a massive week with three games in eight days so we've got to give it our all,' he said. 'Everyone is looking forward to it and is up for the challenge. We're not thinking about other teams because first and foremost we've got to get a good result ourselves.

'We believe we can get a result going into every game and that will be no different this weekend. Momentum will be key, but we've got to focus on the Manchester United match first.

Redmond insists the majority of Alex Neil's squad proved last season they can handle the pressure after battling through the Championship play-offs to clinch promotion.

'It's a different scenario, but we had a similar pressure last year,' he said, speaking to the club's official site. 'That time it wasn't a fight for our lives, it was about ensuring nobody stopped us from getting to where we wanted to be. Our attitude now is about fighting to stay in the league.

'It's a different kind of pressure, but if we bring all the experience we've had I'm sure we can achieve what we want to.

'The supporters are going to play a vital role in these last few games. They have been with us all season and throughout my time here as a whole, so we know we can count on them.'
