How Adebayor has been proven wrong by Spurs teammates while away from the team

Tottenham Hotspur have addressed their home form already.

Tottenham Hotspur's squad have proven Emmanuel Adebayor wrong, while the striker has been away from the side. 

Earlier in the season, Adebayor made comments saying that Spurs were more suited to playing away from home because of the atmosphere at White Hart Lane, but his concerns have been found unwarranted. 

"Will it help playing away from home? To be honest, I think so," Adebayor said to BBC Sport back in November

"And I am not just talking about me, I am speaking on behalf of all the players.

"When you are playing at home and your own fans start booing you after a few minutes then it is harder."

Adebayor has made just one appearance for Spurs since those comments were made and he may be slightly embarrassed by them now.

Tottenham's recent upturn in form is owed largely to Mauricio Pochettino making White Hart Lane a fortress again. 

Spurs made a worrying start in front of their own fans, winning just two of their first six league games, but they have worked hard to change things around. 

Since a humiliating defeat to Stoke City, where they were thoroughly outplayed, Spurs have won seven and drawn two of their nine games and it is a run of form which has proven the catalyst to turning their season around.

Tottenham are now in contention for a top-four spot, while they also hold ambitions of claiming some silverware in both the FA Cup and the League Cup. 

Spurs have beaten the likes of Chelsea and drawn with Manchester United during this series of excellent results, highlighting the strides forward they are making under Pochettino's guidance. 

Tottenham's superb home record will be tested now as they face another two matches at White Hart Lane in the next week. 

If they are able to avoid defeat in both those games it will really provide a foundation for them to build upon and optimism is likely to be raised even further for the rest of the season.
