In recent weeks, however, his form has dipped slightly, but the striker is happy to return to scoring ways in the match against Newcastle United.
“When you go through four, five, six games without scoring you start questioning yourself what is wrong. I’ve had some stick from my team-mates – in a good way – but it was important to be part of it, to score, to make assists. I’m very happy, very pleased. We took the three points, we showed character, personality,” Adebayor told the club’s official website. Tottenham are currently challenging for a top four finish, and they are well placed to do so this season.
