Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice as Tottenham Hotspur won 4-1 at struggling Bolton Wanderers to stay on track for a top-four Premier League finish.
Tottenham took the lead through Luka Modric’s sensational volley but were pegged back soon after the break when Nigel Reo-Coker’s low finish caught the visitors cold.
Bolton threatened to go ahead but Spurs hit them with a superb goal on the break, with Rafael van der Vaart finishing after a scintillating run by Gareth Bale.
Spurs added a third 55 seconds later, with Adebayor tapping in Aaron Lennon’s cross before the Togolese striker rounded Adam Bogdan to stroke in a fourth – and inch Tottenham ever-closer to Champions League football once again.
This fixture will long be associated with the shocking collapse of Fabrice Muamba in an FA Cup match in March, but the midfielder returned to the Reebok Stadium for the first time – and received an emotional greeting before kick-off.
A tearful Muamba returned to the stands, but was forced to watch Spurs dominate the early exchanges.
