Adebayor, who has been working to over come a back injury, has flown home to Togo for personal reasons and will miss Thursday's Europa League match against Besiktas, reports Sky Sports.

Adebayor hasn't played for Tottenham since early November when he started complaining of back issues. He has returned to Togo with approval of the team's management.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Adebayor was a substitute in the 2-1 loss to Stoke Sunday.

Adebayor has been struggling all season and it appears his playing time is dwindling with his poor play. Soldado and now Kane are stealing his minutes and it will only continue if he can find some productivity. Hopefully he can find his way back into the starting XI when they travel to Hull in two weeks.

Adebayor got off two shots, both on goal, but was unable to score in the 2-1 win over Aston Villa Sunday.

This was the first time Soldado and Adebayor started together and they struggled for the majority of the match not scoring until the final ten minutes. It looked as though Adebayor's goal last week would get him back on track, but keep monitoring him as he can be a dynamic goal scorer.

Adebayor started and scored in a 2-1 loss to Newcastle on Sunday.

This was a great sign for Adebayor, as he was struggling and his starting spot looked to be in some danger. However, the goal was his only shot, so the line doesn't exactly tell the whole story. Spurs have two promising fixtures coming up, so Adebayor's value could stay higher than it's been.

Adebayor was an unused substitute in Tottenham's 4-1 loss to Man City on Saturday.

With only a single goal in the new season, manager Mauricio Pochettino wanted to go a different direction with Roberto Soldado to spark the team. While Soldado looked fine, the team looked far worse. Adebayor may have just been getting a day off, so keep an eye on the situation next week agaisnt Newcastle to see exactly what Spurs do with their starting striker role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Adebayor had a decent game against Arsenal Saturday getting off two shots, both on goal in the 1-1 draw.

Adebayor has been struggling to score this season, but looked pretty effective today and looked close to netting a couple times in this one. Look for him to maintain his starting job for the time being, but if he continues to put up zero's in the goals category, his job could be in jeopardy.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Adebayor played a full 90 minutes Sunday and only got off one shot in the 1-0 loss to West Brom Sunday.

Adebayor has been struggling a bit lately scoring only a single goal in his five games started. His starting striker role doesnt sem to be in question yet, but if he continues to struggle they may give Soldado a chance. With that said, he'll likely start next weekend against his former team Arsenal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Adebayor started again Sunday, but was unable to contribute in the 0-3 loss to Liverpool.

Adebayor has been solid this season and looked like Spurs' most likely threat to score Sunday, getting off three shots in the match. Look for him to continue to start and be a solid source of goals the rest of the campaign.
