Much of the attention for this weekend’s match against Wolves will be the likely appearance in the starting line up of Emmanuel Adebayor. The giant Togolese striker is set to make his debut after missing out against Manchester City due to Premier League rules and he is looking forward to making an impact.
“Everyone has confidence in me, trusts me, everyone knows what I’m capable of doing which is very important to me and now it’s up to me to show them they are not wrong, that they have taken the right decision by scoring goals,” Adebayor said.
As for his ambitions for this season, he believes that Spurs will still challenge the top four despite their poor start to the season,
“I’m very happy and very delighted,” he continued. “I’m not saying we’re playing to win the league, we’re playing for the top four, which is not going to be easy but I think we’ve got the squad now.
Adebayor seems certain to start, with the only question being whether Harry Redknapp plays him as a lone striker or as part of a 4-4-2 alongside Jermain Defoe.
