Published Add your comment

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor saved his side from crashing out of the Europa League last night as the Togo international scored a brace to send the north London side through to the last 16. 

The striker has been in outstanding form for Tottenham since being given the chance to impress under Tim Sherwood. 

Adebayor was banished to the reserves during the final few months of Andre Villas-Boas' reign at White Hart Lane. 

However Sherwood has got the best out of the former Arsenal star by putting a loving arm around the shoulders of Adebayor. 

Here we list several Premier League stars who have proved the critics wrong by battling back from a string of poor performances to become a vital component of their team.
