The north London rivals will meet each other at White Heart Lane on Sunday with the hosts looking to close the gap on the top four, whilst Arsenal try to play catch up with runaway league leaders Chelsea.

But with the Gunners leading the charge up until a few weeks ago, Adebayor has insisted that the pressure was too much for the club to bear and now none of the side’s stars have the guts to keep up the fight.

“Arsenal are a good team when they have the ball. When they don’t, they are not that good. When you put them under pressure, they can’t handle it,” said the striker.

“They don’t have a lot of physical presence. Apart from Flamini, I don’t see anyone who puts themselves into a proper battle.

“Rosicky is not that type of player, Cazorla is not the type of player who defends. Arteta is trying to do it, but that’s not his job.

“They don’t have anybody who can say, ‘if I have to kick, I will kick. If we have to fight, I will put myself at the front of it’. That’s how we have to play. Push them and force them to make errors.”
