Adebayor would LOVE Spurs to finish above Arsenal

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor is determined to finish above former club Arsenal this season. Gooners have never forgiven him for quitting the Emirates to join Manchester City in July 2009.

Adebayor, 28, said: "Everyone knows there's a big rivalry between Arsenal and Spurs.

"When I was at Arsenal, my job was to score goals for them. Now I'm at Tottenham and I have to help the team finish in the top four.

"We have a big chance this season to finish on top of them and we have to take it.

"Last season at the last game of a tough race, you know what happened. We don't want to commit the same mistake. For me it's a big chance to show people I was right to leave Arsenal, which means finishing on top of them. If that's with Tottenham even better."
