Adebayor scored for Tottenham in their 5-2 defeat at Arsenal last season, and Villas Boas said his personal feelings would be a factor in his selection policy.
“I suggest to make the most of it, we can use individuals’ motivations and that is why we used Adebayor also in the game versus City last weekend. These are things that you have to count on.
