Tottenham striker slams Arsenal’s lack of fight

Ex Arsenal forward Emmanuel Adebayor has heaped pressure on his former club ahead of today’s North London derby, as reported by Sky Sports.

Spurs host the Gunners this afternoon in what is yet another vital clash between the pair, with fourth place now seemingly the best both can hope for.

Adebayor was sent off at the Emirates last season after a characteristic lunge, but the Togo striker is currently on fine form and has set his sights on the Gunners.

The 30 year old believes that Arsenal cannot handle the physical game that Tottenham will bring today, and that when they don’t have the ball they are there for the taking.

“Arsenal are a good team when they have the ball. When they don’t, they are not that good. When you put them under pressure, they can’t handle it,” Adebayor said.

“They don’t have a lot of physical presence. Apart from Flamini, I don’t see anyone who puts themselves into a proper battle.

“Rosicky is not that type of player, Cazorla is not the type of player who defends. Arteta is trying to do it, but that’s not his job.

“They don’t have anybody who can say, ‘if I have to kick, I will kick. If we have to fight, I will put myself at the front of it’. That’s how we have to play. Push them and force them to make errors.”
