HEAD-TO-HEAD: Adebayor v Remy - Spurs man outshines reported target

Emmanuel Adebayor

Emmanuel Adebayor shone for Tottenham Hotspur against Queens Park Rangers, putting Loic Remy in the shade.

Adebayor V Remy

Tottenham Hotspur put in an impressive performance to beat Queens Park Rangers 4-0 at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Two goals from Nacer Chadli and one apiece from Emmanuel Adebayor and Eric Dier gave Mauricio Pochettino's side the points and ensured they maintained their 100% start to the league campaign.  But how did Adebayor do in comparison with reported Spurs target Loic Remy?

In truth, the Togo international outshone him in every department, scoring one, setting up another and generally looking a cut above. He had four scoring attempts in total, half of which were on target.  In comparison, Remy failed to get either of his shots on goal.

The Tottenham man also played four key passes while Remy failed to create a scoring chance for a teammate despite playing for 10 minutes more than Adebayor.

And then there was the pass accuracy, with Adebayor's an impressive 93% and Remy's a disappointing 63%.

When you consider those figures, you wonder if Tottenham really need Remy, or if they should simply put their hopes in the players who shone on Sunday.
