Who needs Thierry Henry?

Emmanuel Adebayor
is thriving as the main threat in the Arsenal attack since Henry's departure to Barcelona. The Togolese striker scored twice to lift his league tally to 18 goals as the Gunners regained the lead in the English Premier League on Saturday when they beat Manchester City, 3-1, and Manchester United had to settle for a 1-1 tie at Tottenham.

Adebayor also set up Croatia international Eduardo's goal when he headed on Gael Clichy's cross.

"We do not forget Thierry," said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, "but to fill that void the way Emmanuel has done is fantastic."

Adebayor has scored in each of his last games and now scored two goals in three of his last five games for Arsenal, which moved two points ahead of Manchester United.

Man U had gone into the day with the lead on goal difference.

Chelsea fell six points behind Arsenal when it drew, 1-1, at Portsmouth. The Blues had their nine-game winning streak snapped when Jermaine Defoe, signed from Tottenham on Thursday, scored in his Pompey debut.
