Recommended Player for Gameweek 13

Recommended Player for Gameweek 13 - Emmanuel Adebayor (Tottenham Hotspur)

My recommended play for gameweek 13 is Tottenham's loan signing Emmanuel Adebayor. He brings proven pedigree to Spurs' lack of striking options, courtesey of his experience with the likes of Monaco, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Man City. Such has been his impact that he has been a regular starter, which has led to England's Jermain Defoe being relegated to bench duty.  5 goals and 5 assists from 9 matches indicates that he is involved with goals on a regular basis.  Admittedly he had not scored for 6 gameweeks prior to GW 12, but this should not underestimate his true worth. As mentioned when recommending Kyle Walker a few weeks ago, Spurs have relatively generous fixtures up until mid-January. This will allow for more goals for Tottenham's attack orientated team and may even make them surprise title challengers come the New Year. At 8.6 he is a relative steal when considering the prices of the out-of-form Rooney (11.9) and his team mate Hernandez (10.0). It would be a surprise for Harry Redknapp to bench Adebayor in place of Defoe, unless he and Spurs go through a bad patch. Buy him now before his value exceeds 9.0!
