It will be interesting to see if Spurs can ever get two fit strikers ahead of a game between now and the rest of the season. For now, our lack of cover up front has been exposed once again with reports that Emmanuel Adebayor is set to miss tomorrow night’s Europa League tie with Inter Milan.
Ade was taken off at White Hart Lane on Sunday but after the match, head coach Andre Villas-Boas felt that the injury wasn’t serious. Admittedly he’d said something similar about Sandro after the QPR game but Adebayor seems unlikely to face a similar lay off.
However, reports confirm that the Togolese missed training today and looks almost certain to sit out tomorrow night’s first leg.
Fortunately, Jermain Defoe is ready to resume his role as the lone striker so expect JD to take his place in the starting XI for Thursday, and on Sunday when Tottenham travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool.
Having only one fit striker isn’t ideal but if the situation persists until the end of the season, it will surely force Spurs into the transfer market when the window opens in June.
