The Sun - Arsenal are really ... Smokin'
EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR lit up Arsenal’s title charge and roared: Now we are smokin’!  


The Daily Mail - A striking difference as Adebayor shows the real value of a predator
Arsene Wenger need only cast a glance in the direction of White Hart Lane to see what happens when you lose such a precious commodity as a quality striker.  

The Daily Express - ADEBAYOR SHOWS HE’S REAL DEAL FOR WENGER
HAVING seen the hands already played by two of his rivals for the Premier League title earlier in the weekend, Arsene Wenger could have been excused for keeping an ace or two up his sleeve at Upton Park yesterday.

The Times - Julien Faubert's faux pas gifts victory to Arsenal
Much has been written about the frosty relationship between Nicklas Bendtner and Emmanuel Adebayor, but it was Arsenal’s odd couple who came to their team’s rescue on an evening when it seemed likely that they would lose ground on Liverpool in the race for the Barclays Premier League title.  

The Independent - Adebayor maintains Gunners' grip on Zola
How Gianfranco Zola must hate the sight of Arsenal. In his seven years in Chelsea's midfield, the diminutive Italian never once tasted success against Arsène Wenger's team in 12 appearances. Yesterday, as West Ham's manager, that sequence continued in a gripping encounter that was settled by an own goal and a last-gasp Emmanuel Adebayor special.

The Telegraph - Emmanuel Adebayor comes off bench to fire Arsenal to victory
The case of the captain and the cigarette has been emphatically snuffed out. Arsenal proved on Sunday that they had no time for such frivolities as William Gallas being caught smoking outside a nightclub, with Emmanuel Adebayor’s brief but incendiary star-turn lighting up the Premier League title race.

The Guardian - Adebayor adds missing cut to Arsenal's thrust
Arsenal were ultimately the clear and deserved winners but if their captain, William Gallas, was tempted to lean on a post with another gasper between his lips it was an indulgence he could never afford against a determined and well organised West Ham United side.
