Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor is backing Wigan Athletic to upset Arsenal tonight.

Adebayor saw enough from Roberto Martinez’s team in their FA Cup Final win against Manchester City to believe they can cause another surprise against his former club.

“It will be tough for them but they have just won the FA Cup and, with the confidence they have, it’s a good time for them to play Arsenal,” said Adebayor. “We hope so and we’ll be cheering for them.

“We know they have a good team with Shaun Maloney, Callum McManaman and Arouna Kone. They fought for every ball and deserved to beat Manchester City.

“Now they have two big games to save their season and if they can find a way to do that, it will be tremendous. They have to go to Arsenal and do their job there.”
