LONDON (AFP) - Emmanuel Adebayor's return to form has ensured Tottenham head into their FA Cup third round clash at Arsenal with renewed confidence they can overcome their north London rivals on Sunday.

Adebayor has scored four times in five appearances since being restored to the team by new manager Tim Sherwood after a spell in exile under previous boss Andre Villas-Boas.

The Togo striker continued his impressive revival with the opening goal in Tottenham's 2-1 win at Manchester United on Wednesday.

And Spurs left-back Danny Rose believes the strike partnership between Adebayor and Roberto Soldado is one of the reasons behind the side's recent renaissance.
