Emmanuel Adebayor was praised by his manager Andre Villas-Boas after his goalscoring display against Chelsea.
The forward caused somewhat of a stir among Spurs fans when he was selected ahead of Jermain Defoe, who did not even get any game time and had to settle for being an unused substitute.
Adebayor scored our first equaliser with a stunning curled effort from outside of the box after Gary Cahill backed off. The Togo striker also had a key part to play in substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson’s 80th minute effort. Adebayor neatly flicked the ball to Sigurdsson, who found the bottom corner.
“Adebayor’s performance was absolutely outstanding,” AVB told the press.
“He’s been struggling with knee pain and he put himself forward for the team with a great game and a great performance.”
