Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas insists there's problems with Emmanuel Adebayor.

There has been plenty of speculation that Adebayor was unhappy with Villas-Boas' preferred strategy of playing Jermain Defoe as a lone hitman.

The Spurs boss said: "Emmanuel had his first training session on Tuesday and he has not been selected for this game because I thought it was too soon, but he is in contention for Aston Villa."
