The Togolese striker is confident that Arsene Wenger's men will turn in a spirited performance.
"For me as an Arsenal player I know how important it is," Adebayor told Sky Sports News.
"We know we are eight points behind and we have a chance to play them and close the gap.
"We have to keep focused. It is going to be an important game and I don't have to say too much about it.
"The motivation will come from within ourselves. We need to show good character and a good personality to win the game."
