Moussa Dembele, Emmanuel Adebayor not badly injured

Great news coming out of White Hart Lane following the North London Derby: Our injured starters will be okay.

We all feared the worst watching both Moussa Dembele and Emmanuel Adebayor forced out of the North London Derby with injuries, but it seems that both will be fine. Or, at least, there's no ligament damage as far as anyone can tell thus far. According to Andre Villas-Boas, via the Guardian's Daniel Taylor and the Evening Standard's James Olley, they'll be in contention to face Inter.

I have to say, I was sufficiently freaked out when both went down. Dembele was up and walking around after his injury, but Adebayor looked like he'd seriously injured himself. I'm very pleasantly surprised to learn that they're both not looking at long-term absences.
