Emmanuel Adebayor has no problem fighting for his place at Tottenham.

Both in-form Jermain Defoe and new signing Clint Dempsey are seemingly ahead in AVB's pecking order.

The ex-Arsenal man said: "Jermain is on fire at the moment and Clint is an unbelievable player. I am happy to be here - you just have to fight for what you want to achieve.

"The season started six or seven weeks ago but for me it starts on Sunday. As a footballer you have to be ready for when you have the chance to play. I have been injured but now I am back."
