Chelsea must win against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday if they want a chance of catching Manchester United who have a five point lead in the Premiership.
Adebayor said: “We all remember what happened in Cardiff and it is very important for ourselves and for our supporters to beat Chelsea this time.
“Of course the Carling Cup final still hurts. We were the better team for most of that game.
“It’s always difficult to accept when you play good football and don’t win. But we have already shown Arsenal are as good as Chelsea. The way we play football at times is just amazing.
“I don’t want to say this game on Sunday is all about revenge but we will give everything to win.”
