Team news: Ade's back!

Shaun Botterill

Emmanuel Adebayor is set to return to the side in time to face Sunderland, which is good because we only have Harry Kane healthy.

Good news, everyone! Sky Sports is reporting that Emmanuel Adebayor looks likely return to the team sheet in time for this weekend's home game versus Sunderland.

Ade's been out for about three weeks now with a heel injury (no wrestling jokes, plz), and Spurs have certainly missed him out there. Tim Sherwood announced that our beloved Togolese striker looks likely to have a role in the match, though who knows if he'll start or not:

"We'll continue to assess him as the week progresses and hopefully he'll then be back in contention against Sunderland... He's obviously been a big miss. He's been outstanding for us."

Good thing, too, since Roberto Soldado is still out with no return date. Who knows, we might again see Nacer Chadli playing at striker this weekend if Ade can't make it.

In other injury news, Jan Vertonghen (ankle), Paulinho (conjunctivitis, aka "pink eye"), Kyle Walker (groin), Etienne Capoue (ankle), Erik Lamela (back), and Vlad Chiriches (back) are also all at various levels of 90% fitness and it's unlikely we'll see any of them in action this weekend.
