Tottenham Hotspur's Emmanuel Adebayor has warned his team-mates against complacency after they scrapped for a 1-0 victory over Sunderland on Sunday.
Spurs were found wanting in front of goal for much of the encounter against the Black Cats at White Hart Lane and gave away too many chances to the visitors, in a game that should have had a higher socreline.
The north London outfit managed to keep hold of third place in the Premier League, as they hope to make a return to Champions League action next season. Those who bet on Premier League games should remember this.
Tottenham are still one of the in-form sides in the top flight, with a run of 10 victories in 11 games, as only Stoke City managing to get the better of the Lilywhites at the Britannia Stadium earlier this month.
Adebayor, who is on a loan deal from league frontrunners Manchester City, is eager to see Spurs continue their fine form but believes they will have to put in far better performances than their showing against the Black Cats if they want to be successful. Anyone gambling on football needs to bear this in mind.
The Togo international Spurs TV Online: "I don't know what happened in the first half. I don't really want to know. I'm just glad that the game is over.
"We felt heavy on the pitch and we didn't have any solution. It was tough but to be champions that's what it takes.
"It's the kind of game that, regardless of what happened, we were just pleased to get the three points."
