And Lloris believes the former Manchester City, Arsenal and Real Madrid forward should be credited for his general play, not just his goalscoring exploits.
"He's a top player and a decisive player," he told the club's official website.
"Take away the fact that he scored the goals, he worked a lot of the team. He made a lot of runs and created a lot of space around him.
"Sometimes when you are struggling in a game he's a good target, he can keep the ball and help the team to play higher up the pitch."
Adebayor's purple patch in front of goal has coincided with a fine run of form for Tottenham, who have won four straight Premier League matches to move them up to fifth in the table.
