Villas Boas hoping to use Adebayor’s ‘revenge’ factor

Andre Villas Boas hopes Emmanuel Adebayor’s motivation to take on his former team Arsenal will help Spurs on Saturday lunchtime.

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.

“But hopefully, it can have a positive effect, even if it can also have a negative effect. Last season, he scored from the penalty spot and he had a good game [at the Emirates], and this is the type of motivation for matches like this.”
