Adebayor eyes Spurs recovery

Striker looking for Tottenham to get back to winning ways in league

Emmanuel Adebayor: Looking to gain victory at Goodison Park on Saturday

Emmanuel Adebayor has backed Spurs to bounce back from successive Premier League defeats at Everton on Saturday.

Third-placed Spurs' title hopes have virtually gone after losing 5-2 at rivals Arsenal at the Emirates and then slipping to a 3-1 home defeat to Manchester United.

Since those setbacks, Harry Redknapp's side have gained a morale-boosting 3-1 win over Stevenage in Wednesday night's FA Cup fifth round replay, in which Adebayor bagged a penalty.

The on-loan Manchester City striker is now looking for Redknapp's third-placed side to push on against the Toffees in their bid to secure UEFA Champions League football next season.

Bounce back


Watch Everton v Tottenham Hotspur live on ESPN from 5.30pm on Saturday.

He told the club's official website: "We believe we can bounce back.

"Don't get me wrong, we had some difficult moments in the last two games, but every team in the league will have those moments.

"We have to believe in ourselves, to keep going. We will win points, lose points, so will Arsenal, Chelsea, City and United.

"We have a big chance to finish in the top three and we have to keep going until the end of the season."


Adebayor hailed Spurs' character after they went 1-0 down to League One Stevenage but battled back to victory.

He said: "It was important for us to show character and personality, especially after going 1-0 down.

"I'm sure fans would have thought 'not again' but we changed it around, stayed calm, played our football and won 3-1. Now we concentrate on Everton."
