Video: Adebayor nutmegs Walker before scoring in Tottenham Hotspur training

Tottenham Hotspur Stands

Tottenham Hotspur's Emmanuel Adebayor scored a great goal in training.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor has shown the kind of sharpness in training that Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to see tonight against Burnley.

Spurs take on Sean Dyche's side in the FA Cup later this evening, with Adebayor likely to be recalled to the starting line-up, according to a report in the London Evening Standard.

The Togolese centre-forward has not played since the start of November and could leave White Hart Lane in the next few weeks.

It means that this could be his last chance to impress in a Spurs shirt and he will be desperate to take it in-front of an expectant White Hart Lane audience.

His form in training (which can be seen in the Spurs TV video above at 0:59) suggests that he may just have something to offer, too, as he danced past Kyle Walker before slotting the ball into the far corner. 

Tottenham are thought to be on the hunt for a new front-man in the near future, but if Adebayor can show the form which made him a world-class talent at his peak, Pochettino may be put off making a decision about his future for the time being at the very least.
