Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has plenty of time for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

All eyes will be on Adebayor as he faces his former club in the colours of their local rivals. Szczesny believes the Togo international is one of the best strikers around but he says Arsenal have a plan to stop him.

"He is a quality player - probably one of the best strikers I've ever trained with," Szczesny told arsenal.com. "It will be very hard to keep him marked but I'm confident we can do it.

"We won't approach the game in a different way than we usually do. Ade is a great striker and we know how dangerous he is but I think it is to our advantage that we know how to deal with him. I'm not going to tell you because it's our little secret!

"I might have let a few in [when they trained together at Arsenal] but I am sure it will be different this time. I would love to keep a clean sheet against him, I'm not going to lie. But I am very confident we can do that and get the three points."
