Emmanuel Adebayor is determined to achieve a place in the Premier League’s top four on Sunday and insisted: "We deserve it."

Ade's target

The striker dispatched a penalty as we came from 1-0 down and being reduced to 10 men to secure a 1-1 draw at Villa on Sunday.

That goal made it 16 goals in 31 league starts for ‘Ade’ and means we go into the final weekend a point clear of Newcastle in fourth and a point behind Arsenal.

Victory against Fulham at the Lane on Sunday will guarantee at least fourth spot with Arsenal travelling to West Brom. Newcastle go to Everton.

“We have do everything it takes to win the last game and we’ll see what happens from there,” said Ade, who also has 11 assists to his name.

“Arsenal are playing at West Brom, that’s tough for them. We’re playing our last game at home and we couldn’t ask for more than that.

“It will be an amazing game, the fans will be with us and hopefully we’ll get what we deserve, and that’s to finish in the top four.”

Ade felt the 10 men showed real character to take a point at Villa.

“We knew it would be tough,” he said. “We needed to win and they needed to win to keep out of relegation.

“They scored a deflected goal in the first half. What could we do about that? Nothing.

“We dusted ourselves down for the second half because we knew we had the ability to come back.

“We showed character in the second half, played together, worked hard and went home with one point.”
