Football: Adebayor stars as Sherwood's Spurs extend league run

LONDON (AFP) - Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice as Tottenham Hotspur moved level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool in the Premier League after a 3-1 win away to struggling Swansea on Sunday.

Adebayor's goals, separated by a Chico Flores own goal, ensured Tottenham remained unbeaten in the league under manager Tim Sherwood, whose record now stands at five wins and a draw since the Englishman replaced sacked predecessor Andre Villas-Boas.

For Swansea, an eighth successive league match without a win left Michael Laudrup's men just three points above the relegation zone.

The Welsh club had early chances at the Liberty Stadium, with Hugo Lloris saving Jonjo Shelvey's long-range shot and striker Wilfried Bony hitting the crossbar when the France goalkeeper had been beaten by a powerful shot.
