Emmanuel Adebayor has insisted that he values Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-0 win over Everton yesterday higher than his individual strike which settled the game.

The striker’s 65th minute goal at White Hart Lane boosted Spurs’ chances of qualifying for next year’s Champions League as they moved into fifth place in the Premier League table with 47 points from 25 games, just three points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool.

And Adebayor explained after the game that he was more delighted with the result rather than his goal, which sealed the deal for his side.

The Togo international, who admitted that Everton were a good side, now wants Spurs to shift their focus onto their next game.


"I’m happy, delighted, but not about the goal, about winning the game”, Adebayor told his club’s official site.

“If someone else scored, I’d still be as happy. The most important thing is winning the game, not who scores.

"We knew it was going to be tough, we played against a good team in Everton.

"The key thing is to win and now we move onto the next one."

Tottenham will next play Newcastle United, who were thrashed 3-0 by Chelsea at the weekend, on Wednesday at St. James' Park.
