thumbnail Hello,

The 27-year-old is happy to get off to a strong start for Spurs, who have won each of their last three Premier League matches, winning praise from manager Harry Redknapp

Emmanuel Adebayor believes he is getting his form back after setting up the opening goal in Tottenham's 2-1 win away at Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

The Togolese forward capitalised on a loose pass after just three minutes that allowed him to race towards goal and cut back for Rafael van der Vaart to finish.

He went on to complete 90 minutes as Spurs withstood a spirited fightback from the home side at the DW Stadium, despite being affected by an eye injury after a challenge.

"I'm getting my form back slowly and I think I helped my team to win," he told talkSPORT.

"Unfortunately the second half was quite difficult because I was playing with only one eye. I couldn't see the ball, I couldn't see my opponents or anything but I managed to stay on the pitch for 90 minutes."

The 27-year-old signed for Spurs on loan from Manchester City over the summer after failing to feature in manager Roberto Mancini’s plans, in a late deal that put an end to months of speculation over Harry Redknapp's plans to sign a striker.

He has started well for Spurs after scoring on his debut in a 2-0 away win against Wolves, then twice in a 4-0 home victory over Liverpool, despite having played for rivals Arsenal and contributing to Spurs’ Champions League quarter-final exit during a loan spell with Real Madrid.

Spurs manager Redknapp was full of praise for his side's recent form with their new signing up front, saying: “We made it nine points out of nine so we are on a good run.

"His movement is top-class and he is playing with loads of enthusiasm. He got in some good positions today."
