While manager Arsene Wenger rounded on the refereeing over the two legs, Adebayor said: "There's a lot of things I don't understand in football and I couldn't say if it was a penalty or not tonight.
"We had the chance of a penalty in both the last two games against Liverpool and the referee didn't see it like that but tonight he gave them a penalty. That happens in football and we have to be big enough to take it."
"Of course we can still win the league," said Adebayor. "Sunday is our season now - it determines whether we still have something to play for or whether we can go on holiday. If we win in Manchester we can still hope to win the league so we have to get our focus back, stay strong and make sure we do that. Right now we're all disappointed but we will be back in the Champions League next season and the boss knows the answers. He knows what to do and what's needed to win it."
