Adebayor believes his high aims will be met at Spurs

EMMANUEL Adebayor hopes Tottenham's win over Swansea can spark a revival that will see him end his first season at the north London club with a top-four finish and his first FA Cup winner's medal.

Adebayor bagged two vital late goals on Sunday as Spurs ended their seven-week wait for a Premier League victory by beating the Swans 3-1 at White Hart Lane.

Previous defeats to Everton, Manchester United and Arsenal had put the club in danger of dropping out of the top four, but they are now level with the Gunners and five points clear of Chelsea and Newcastle, in fifth and sixth, with seven games left.

Tottenham also have an FA Cup semi-final against the Blues to look forward to a week on Sunday and Adebayor, who has never clinched a cup winner's medal, is confident his team can end the season with a bang.

"For me, my target before coming to join Tottenham was to get into the top four and we are in a good position to do that now," the 28-year-old said.

"We are in the FA Cup semi-final as well. We just have to give it a go, try to give everything and finish in the top four, and why not win the FA Cup as well?"

Tottenham are yet to come to an agreement with City over making Adebayor's move to White Hart Lane permanent.

The player himself wants to stay in London but has hinted that he would be unwilling to take a pay cut from the £170,000 he is reported to earn at the Etihad Stadium.
