Roberto Soldado confirms on Instagram that he won’t be playing for Spurs v Hull

It was pretty much expected, but Roberto Soldado has announced on Instagram, a full four hours before the Capital One Cup tie with Hull, that he won’t be playing for Tottenham this evening.

Reposting a picture alongside Sandro, the Spanish Spurs striker tagged the image with the following statement: “With @sandroraniere after a good training,back home. Tonight encourage mates. Come on Spurs!!”

Could this mean a first start of the season for Emmanuel Adebayor? Or perhaps we will see the Togo hitman come on for his first Tottenham appearance of 2013/2014.
