Player Ratings

A couple of less than confident kicks early on but these were more than covered by a fine save at the end.

Guy Demel
Spurs' lack of attacking threat allowed him to get forward to good effect.

George McCartney
Same as Demel. Only on the other side.

Winston Reid
Seems to have recaptured the form that he had prior to the injury that interrupted his season.

James Tomkins
Made Adebayor look very ordinary. Which of course he is.

Mark Noble
Ran the show. Although Lloris got most MOTM plaudits in the papers he's our candidate.

Mo Diame
Some good moments but I'd dearly like to know what he sees down those blind alleys he keeps seeking out.

Matt Taylor
Keept Paulinho so quiet I had to check the team sheet to see if he was actually playing.

Stewart Downing
Good first half and contributed with a goal ?EUR" though Adebayor's assist helped.

Kevin Nolan
Got through a fair few miles off the ball which is the sort of thing that often goes unnoticed.

Andy Carroll
Virtually unplayable. Held the ball up well and brought others into play.


Carlton Cole
A couple of good runs in his cameo.

Matt Jarvis
Didn't really show in the few minutes he was on.

Jussi Jaaskelainen
Did not play.

Pablo Armero
Did not play.

James Collins
Did not play.

Antonio Nocerino
Did not play.

Ricardo Vaz Te
Did not play.
