On December 13, 2006, Adebayor once again demonstrated his knack of scoring crucial goals as he scored the winner in a 1-0 win at the JJB Stadium against Wigan. In the 88th minute, after a long ball from Fàbregas, and a well timed run, Adebayor was able to poke the ball under and between the legs of the advancing Chris Kirkland. On December 16, 2006, Adebayor came on for Arsenal when they were losing 2-0 at home to Portsmouth F.C.; he scored within minutes, slotting in a perfect cross from Theo Walcott and Arsenal went on to draw after his cross was slotted home by Gilberto Silva, via a mis-control from Walcott. Adebayor's next appearance for the Gunners on December 23, 2006 resulted in him converting the third goal, a penalty, in a 6–2 victory over Blackburn Rovers. He further contributed by assisting another two goals, firstly for Alexander Hleb and the second for Robin van Persie. His next goal came in the second leg of the semi final of the Carling Cup. With the scores at 0–0 (though Arsenal holding an advantage due to a 2–2 draw in the previous leg) Adebayor slotted past the goalkeeper his left foot after Tomas Rosicky had cleverly played him through. Adebayor was sent off in Arsenal's 2–1 Carling Cup final loss to Chelsea. He was shown the red card after a fracas towards the end of the match involving both Chelsea and Arsenal players. It was alleged that he had thrown a punch at Frank Lampard. The FA subsequently gave him an additional one-match ban and a fine of £7500 for failing to leave the field of play immediately, as well as a three-match ban for the red card.

After a fruitful pre-season, displaying vast improvements in terms of his shooting ability and attacking prowess, his 2007-08 campaign has started brightly. After dispatching a penalty during the 3–1 win over Portsmouth, his two goal brace against Tottenham Hotspur was instrumental in a 3–1 win in the first North London derby of the season. Adebyaor then scored his first hat-trick for Arsenal in a 5–0 home win against Derby County on 22 September 2007. This was the second hat-trick scored at the Emirates Stadium after Jay Simpson scored three for Arsenal's U18 side in an FA Youth Cup match against Cardiff City, in a 3-2 win.
