Boss Derek McInnes today insisted the Dons can handle the mounting pressure and expectation at the top of the Premiership table.
A sensational 12-game unbeaten league streak has moved the Reds level on points with Celtic at the summit.
Speculation that Aberdeen can win a first league title since 1985 was ramped up when the Reds overcame defending champions Celtic 2-1 at Pittodrie.
It was the first time since 1990-91 Aberdeen had completed a home double over the Hoops in a season.
Having secured 30 points from the last possible 36, Aberdeen’s odds on winning the Premiership crown have been slashed by bookmakers to 6-1.
McInnes accepts expectation is piling on his squad but reckons that is nothing new as they have been dealing with that for years.
The Dons boss, whose side travel to Inverness Caley Thistle on Monday, said: “There has been expectation on us from day one, but I get that.
“I am totally relaxed with that and the players are too.
“We all know what is expected of you when you work at this club.
“In the past two-and-a-half years we have shown that we are capable of going on a strong run.
“If we can keep a steady hand, retain that same focus and level of concentration, that is when we keep winning games.”
