Juande Ramos has not given Jermain Defoe a full game since his appointment as head coach at Tottenham - but he insists there is no pecking order of strikers at White Hart Lane.

Defoe came off the bench to grab the late winner in Sunday´s 2-1 win over Manchester City, his first strike under Ramos and a goal that reopened the debate over why he sees such little action.

Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov appear to be the first-choice pair for Ramos, and Darren Bent has been given two starts in the last week without making an impact, but Ramos said: "There´s no one, two, three or four in order," said Ramos. "We simply have four centre-forwards to play in two positions so two can play each game and two have to sit it out."
