Spurs boss AVB warns Man City of inspired Adebayor

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has warned Manchester City they face an inspired Emmanuel Adebayor tomorrow.

Adebayor missed the crucial spot-kick which handed Basel victory in the Europa League quarter-final last week. But he has vowed to put things right against City and Villas-Boas (left) will be looking for an immediate reaction.

The manager said: "I think the penalty miss is something that happens to all the great players.

"Zlatan Ibrahimovic missed a penalty, Lionel Messi missed a penalty last season against Chelsea, so it happens to the best.

"He had a great game against City in the first round of fixtures, so it can serve as an inspiration for a player that has played there and hopefully we can profit from that in some way."
