Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has launched a scathing attack on Manchester City's team spirt ahead of his side's match against the Premier League champions.

Adebayor made a permanent move to Tottenham from the Citizens last summer - after scoring 18 goals in 37 appearances while on loan at the north London side.

The Togo international, who is likely to be involved in Tottenham's crucial encounter against his former employees, believes Andre Villas-Boas' side can claim all three points on Sunday.

"If we put them under pressure we have a chance to win for sure. I was there and whenever things are not going their way there will definitely be a fight or an argument on the pitch and that is how we can take them down," Adebayor told

"I think that this will be the decisive game for us. If we win, the confidence will be back. Then we will have a chance to finish in the top four."

The 29-year-old has been heavily criticised in recent weeks for not producing the same level of performances he displayed when he was trying to earn a permanent move to White Hart Lane.

Adebayor has failed to live up to his own high standards this season by netting just three goals in the Premier League this campaign.
