Tottenham caretaker boss Tim Sherwood was happy to start Emmanuel Adebayor for their Capital One Cup defeat to West Ham United.

Adebayor was making his first start of the season and scored his first goal since May after a rumoured fallout with Villas-Boas.

Sherwood said: "He's not got a point to prove to the fans. You could see the way they reacted to him.

"If he shows that effort and drive, which he did tonight, and a real desire to want to play, I've got no hesitation to have him around the team."
