Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes admits Manu Adebayor is red hot after Arsenal's victory on Monday night.

"Adebayor's an outstanding footballer," Hughes said. "My back four dealt with him as well as I've seen anyone deal with him.

"Goals bring confidence and he's scoring them left, right and centre. We've come up against him, equipped ourselves well, but he's ended up on the scoresheet again."
