    Emmanuel Adebayor Tottenham Hotspur STAR MAN 
    Emmanuel Adebayor
    The former Arsenal man has been in fine form of late scoring four goals in his last five games. Adebayor has a good record against his old club and scored in last season's 5-2 defeat to the Gunners before getting sent-off moments later. The Ivorian will certianly be the man to watch for the Gunners defence on Saturday.
