Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor believes that his former club Arsenal are not capable of winning a trophy this season.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor does not believe that talent is enough for Arsenal to win a trophy this season.

The 28-year-old scored 62 goals in 142 appearances in a three-year spell with Arsenal, but as Adebayor prepares to face his former club on Saturday, he has insisted that the Gunners will not end their seven-year trophy drought this season.

Adebayor told The Sun: "I think we all know it is a long time since Arsenal won a trophy. I have a huge amount of respect for all the players there now. But to win a trophy is not so easy.

"The players at Arsenal are good but sometimes you need more than good to win a trophy. You also need luck. You never know but the league looks over for them and the Champions League looks tough, so I cannot see them winning any trophies.

"You also need people who say OK, I will give my life on the pitch. That is rare in football."

Adebayor has yet to score in six appearances for Spurs this season.
