Ade is the derby man - Wenger

Arsenal will be playing Tottenham on Sunday, Wenger has pin pointed that Adebayor will be his key man in the north london derby.

Adebayor has an impressive record against the Spurs. He has scored eight times in the last eight derbies including a brace in White Hart Lane. No wonder Spurs fans hate him!

The Togolese striker has not been in good form this season, and the match against the Spurs might be something he is looking forward to. He has always scored against them, he would be wanting to do that again to end his goal draught.

Wenger said that Adebayor was disturbed in the start of the season because of the speculation that the player will be leaving Emirates in the summer. Fortunately for Arsenal, Van Persie rose to the occasion and has started finding the target.

Adebayor had a great last season, scoring 30 goals and finished second only to Cristiano Ronaldo in the Premier League.
