Emmanuel Adebayor admits it has been a difficult season for the Tottenham striker but has vowed to “give everything” to help Spurs nick a top-four finish.

The Togolese striker has been limited to just 24 starts in all competitions for Andre Villas-Boas’s men since completing a permanent move to White Hart Lane from Manchester City last summer.

The 29-year-old has been hampered by injuries and has struggled for form for much for the season but his man-of-the-match display against Chelsea on Wednesday helped Spurs earn a point at Stamford Bridge.

And the former Arsenal striker is determined to help Tottenham finish the season on a high, despite the 2-2 draw leaving their top-four hopes out of their hands.

“Don’t get me wrong, it’s been a difficult season for me with injuries but I feel I’m getting fitter now and it’s strange, I’m getting fitter and it’s the end of the season,” Adebayor, who featured for Togo at the Africa Cup of Nations earlier in the year, told Tottenham’s website.

“We’ve two games to go and I will give everything I’ve got left in the locker.”

Adebayor cancelled out Oscar’s opener in the 2-2 draw at Chelsea with a sumptuous first-half strike, before setting up substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson for the winner.

“Even at 2-1, we had to believe that we had the quality to score,” he continued. “Clint Dempsey came in, Gylfi came in, we know with that quality we can score at any time. In the end we scored late and we wanted the third goal, but it didn’t happen for us.”

Tottenham travel to Stoke City for their penultimate Premier League game on Sunday.
