Emmanuel Adebayor has spoken of his regret at being sent off in this weekend's north-London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham.

Adebayor put Tottenham into the lead after 10 minutes, but following a rash challenge on Santi Cazorla, was shown a straight red card from referee Howard Webb. Arsenal then went on to record a 5-2 victory at the Emirates Stadium.


The Togo international told The Sun: "I completely understand my sending off changed the entire outcome of the game and I whole-heartedly apologise to my team mates, the manager and all the Tottenham fans for letting them down. But I must stress that my challenge was not malicious in any way whatsoever.


"Nobody could have felt more devastated than me as I walked off the pitch. I so much wanted to help Tottenham win and thought for a moment that I'd actually set that win up when I scored, but football changes so quickly. One minute a hero, the next a villain."


The goal was Adebayor's first of the new season, having missed much of the early stages through injury, and the form of fellow striker Jermain Defoe.


This was the second consecutive time Tottenham have lost 5-2 away to Arsenal - in February of this year Tottenham took a 2-0 lead, thanks to a goal and assist from Adebayor, only for Arsenal to come back and record a comfortable win. The Spurs starting line-up this weekend showed eight changes - only Kyle Walker, Adebayor and Gareth Bale featuring in both.
