Adebayor double denies Baggies

Published Add your comment

Emmanuel Adebayor’s double ensured that Tottenham Hotspur stay third in the Barclays Premier League after overcoming West Bromwich Albion.

Youssouf Mulumbu headed The Baggies in front, but Adebayor tucked the ball away after his initial penalty had been saved.

The Togolese striker then turned provider, setting up Jermain Defoe for a stunning second, before the on-loan Manchester City forward scored his fourth in two games.

Steven Reid’s cross sparked the home side into life, as he found Mulumbu who drifted in between Younes Kaboul and Ledley King.

Spurs’ equalised when Nicky Shorey fouled Aaron Lennon in the penalty area, and Adebayor, who had his first effort saved, slid the rebound home.

His strike partner Defoe put Tottenham ahead when he fired home after a lighting counter-attack.

The visitors soaked up ample Spurs pressure, before being hit on the break late on as Adebayor scored again, after Gareth Bale pull-back.
