Emmanuel Adebayor is hinting that the positive vibes from Manchester City fans have inspired his free-scoring start to the season. The 25-year-old felt Arsenal supporters took their frustrations out on him last season and the Togo striker insists he is enjoying his football again following his summer move.

"As soon as you play for a team where the fans love you and are always behind you, you try to give them something back," he said.

"That is what I have been showing since I joined this club. It is the same with new players like Carlos Tevez and Gareth Barry - with the support from the fans, that motivates and makes you a special player."
