Adebayor returned from a heel injury and was able to grab two second half goals in the 5-1 win over Sunderland on Monday.

Adebayor and Tottenham were absolutely bombarding Sunderland in the second half, scoring four times in the final 45. Now that Adebayor is back and healthy, look for him to continue to grab goals as Tottenham's only true forward.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Manager Tim Sherwood confirmed that Adebayor has recovered enough from his heel injury to play Monday against Sunderland, the club's official web site reports.

With Roberto Soldado out with a hamstring injury, Adebayor will likely be pushed the full 90 minutes for a Spurs team desperate for three points. The striker has eight goals and three assists in 15 games this season, but hasn't played since March 16 against Arsenal, and hasn't scored a Premier League goal since February 12 against Newcastle.

Adebayor is out for Sunday's match against Liverpool at Anfield due to his heel injury.

Adebayor was not in the 18, and Roberto Soldado will start up front for Spurs. Adebayor was doubtful for the match, and his next opportunity to play comes April 7 against Sunderland at White Hart Lane.

Adebayor, who has missed Tottenham's last two matches, is doubtful to play Sunday at Liverpool, the club's official web site reports. Manager Tim Sherwood said "We're hoping Ade can make it but he has a nasty cut at the back of his heel. The question is whether or not we leave him out for another week, let it heal a little better or put him back in and it might open up again.

Adebayor has been Tottenham's best striker this season, although he hasn't scored in a Premier League match since February 12 against Newcastle. If he is unable to play at Anfield, Roberto Soldado is the likely candidate to start up front again.

Adebayor (knee) was able to start after passing a late fitness test but was unable to contribute any goals in the 0-1 loss to Arsenal on Sunday.

Adebayor was very effective even without recording any goals or assists. The injury did not seem to hamper him much, as he got off three shots and even drew two fouls. He was lucky not to pick up a yellow card, as he committed four fouls on the evening as well. It is a good sign to see Adebayor in the team and active, so look for him to continue to start next weekend against Southampton.

Adebayor will face a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match against Arsenal due to a knee injury, the Daily Star reports.

Adebayor was able to play in Thursday's Europa League match against Benfica, but is very much considered an injury doubt for Sunday's match. If he's unable to go, Roberto Soldado or Harry Kane could start in his place.

Adebayor assisted on Roberto Soldado's 28th minute goal during Tottenham's 1-0 win over Cardiff City on Sunday.

After bagging a brace during Thursday's Europa League win over Dnipro, Adebayor kept the solid play going with his assist Sunday. After barely playing under Andre Villas-Boas, Adebayor has scored eight goals and assisted on three others in 13 appearances this season.

Adebayor was back at it again, scoring two goals on four shots in the 4-0 Newcastle beat-down Wednesday.

Adebayor is back to being the stud he was a few years ago. That's three goals in his last two matches and he is undoubtedly the No. 9 goalscorer for Tottenham (disregarding the actual kit numbers). Anyone not using Adebayor in fantasy formats is just losing ground at this point.
