Man Utd boss Ferguson: Adebayor has transformed Arsenal

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has sung the praises of Arsenal ace Emmanuel Adebayor ahead of today's big FA Cup meeting.

He said: "Arsenal might be a more compact team than when they had Thierry Henry in their side; they were more about individuals then.

"They looked to Henry as the player, whereas now they are more solid. Adebayor's height and physique make a difference.

"When we played them last season they were knocking long balls up to him and Arsene Wenger says his physical presence has made a big difference to the team.

"We have seen big centre forwards over the years whose main attribute was heading a ball but Adebayor has a lot more than that."
