"That is a little bit heartbreaking. Adebayor has scored in every game and looked like an absolute world beater," the hitman told Sky Sports News.
"Him and Craig Bellamy have really hit it odd but sadly he won't be making the trip to Old Trafford. You know, that is a disappointment.
"We've not just been playing great with Adebayor up front, we're playing great across the board. I think the blue half of Manchester are very much looking forward to Sunday.
"United have started well as well, so it's pick'em game come Sunday."
