- Tottenham Hotspurs and Arsenal will cross swords in the Premier League for the umpteenth time this evening as both teams chase Champions League qualification
- Aside from the bragging rights usually associated with derbies, tonight's fixture between the two London rivals has Champions League ramifications
- One of the rare footballers who played for both clubs, Emmanuel Adebayor is at a crossroads on which of the sides to support
Legendary Togolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor is divided on who to support ahead of the all-important north London derby, which will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at 6.45 pm.
Tonight's north London derby which pits fierce neighbours Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs together has top four repercussions, with the winner likely to seal Champions League football next season.
Adebayor, who played for Arsenal and Tottenham at different points in his nomadic career, does not know which of his former employers to support.
In a post on the photo-sharing app Instagram, spotted by Sports Brief, Adebayor who is clearly pomped ahead of the big game was caught in a conundrum on who to support between Arsenal and Spurs.
Tottenham, coached by the enigmatic Antonio Conte, has managed to rope themselves into the top four discussions after a poor start to the season while Arsenal have also rallied after a recent dip in form.
With the game finely poised no team on either side of north London will leave any stone unturned with both bragging rights and Champions League football at stake in tonight's game at the Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium.
The 38-year-old striker played for the Gunners between 2006 and 2009 scoring 46 goals in over 100 games while making 92 appearances for Spurs between 2011 and 2015.
