Emmanuel Adebayor ready for Tottenham’s ‘tough game up north’
Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor warns Spurs to expect a "tough game" at Sunderland
Emmanuel Adebayor says Tottenham Hotspur should expect a “tough game” at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are aiming to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Liverpool at White Hart Lane before the international break, ending a four-game winning run.
Spurs, who have beaten West Ham United and Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League this season, are sixth in the table, whilst Gus Poyet’s Sunderland side are 13th.
Tottenham have emerged with a 2-1 victory on their last two visits to Wearside, whilst beating the Black Cats 5-1 in north London last April.
And Adebayor, who scored his only goal of the season so far in a 4-0 win over the Hoops, warned Tottenham to expect a difficult game against the Black Cats.
Game Day!! A tough game up north. Let's get the 3 points. #COYS
