Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor seemed overawed at the Emirates on Saturday.
Perhaps Adebayor was mindful of the fact he was sent off against Arsenal last season, or perhaps he was tired after an excellent performance at Old Trafford in midweek.
The 2-0 north London derby defeat shows Adebayor is crucial to Spurs’ hopes for the rest of the season to finish in the Champions League spots and in the Europa League.
If Adebayor is firing, scoring goals and bringing his team mates into play, Tottenham look like a good side, as they did at Manchester United.
However, if the Togo striker looks disinterested or simply fails with important chances, Tim Sherwood’s side don’t look great at all.
