Spurs boss Sherwood warns Arsenal of fired up Adebayor

Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has warned FA Cup opponents Arsenal they face a fired up Emmanuel Adebayor today.

Adebayor scored the opener in the 2-1 victory against Manchester United on New Year's Day - his fourth goal in five games - and Sherwood was full of praise.

"There are certain players you look to see if they are playing when the team sheet comes in," he said.

"I did that at Old Trafford to see straight away if Wayne Rooney's playing and I'm sure Arsenal will do the same with Adebayor.

"It says a lot about him that he is obviously under some stress when he came off on the stretcher. He was in real pain and couldn't walk, was getting cramped up everywhere.

"For him to put himself in the frame for another huge game - he knows how big this game is. He's played in enough of them, so for him to put himself in the frame for this is real credit to him."
