Sam Allardyce's side stunned their London rivals at White Hart Lane following second-half goals from Winston Reid, Ricardo Vaz Te and Ravel Morrison

By Greg Stobart at White Hart Lane

  • Hugo Lloris
    6
    16
    2.50

    Hugo Lloris

    The Frenchman was not helped by his defenders and was a little unfortunate with both the second and third West Ham goals.

  • Kyle Walker
    4
    28
    1.50

    Kyle Walker

    Fell asleep defensively, especially in the lead up to West Ham's crucial second goal. Saw a lot of the ball but offered little in attack.

  • Jan Vertonghen
    9
    23
    2.00

    Jan Vertonghen

    Comfortable on the ball but some sloppy moments defensively and may feel he could have done more to stop Morrison's goal.

  • Kyle Naughton
    5
    18
    2.50

    Kyle Naughton

    Rarely troubled by Downing but found it difficult on the ball as he kept having to cut inside.

  • Michael Dawson

    22
    1.50

    Michael Dawson

    Good first half and dominant in the air - but the Spurs captain made poor decisions after the break.

  • Paulinho
    10
    20
    2.50

    Paulinho

    Busy performance from the Brazilian. Finishing was off key in the first-half but kept joining the attack and played in Defoe with an excellent pass just after the restart.

  • Andros Townsend
    8
    16
    2.50

    Andros Townsend

    Pace and dribbling gave Spurs another dimension but, on the whole, West Ham shackled him well. Fired just wide with a cracking effort from 30 yards in the first half.

  • Mousa Dembélé
    9
    19
    2.00

    Mousa Dembélé

    The Belgian never really got to grips with the game. Wanted more time on the ball than West Ham allowed him.

  • Gylfi Sigurdsson
    10
    21
    2.00

    Gylfi Sigurdsson

    A very quiet game from the Icelandic midfielder, who came into the fixture in great form but was on the fringes of the match.

  • Christian Eriksen
    16
    19
    2.50

    Christian Eriksen

    The playmaker showed some touches of class but failed to dominate the game. Lacked movement in front of him and was crowded out by West Ham players.

  • Jermain Defoe
    5
    37
    1.50

    Jermain Defoe Flop of the Match

    The former West Ham striker did not take advantage of his first league start of the season. Missed a glorious chance to open the scoring at the start of the second half and failed to provide an attacking outlet.

Substitutions

  • Lewis Holtby
    9
    14

    Lewis Holtby

    Came on for Naughton nine minutes from time.

  • Roberto Soldado
    11
    17
    2.50

    Roberto Soldado

    Came on in the 74th minute with Spurs already 2-0 down. One shot deflected just wide but no other involvement of note.

  • Erik Lamela
    12
    17
    2.00

    Erik Lamela

    The Argentinian replaced Soldado in the 63rd minute but made little impact.

  • Jussi Jaaskelainen
    16
    2
    3.00

    Jussi Jaaskelainen

    Might have expected a busier game, certainly in the first half, but was sharp enough off his line to make a great save to deny Defoe early in the second half.

  • Winston Reid
    18
    2
    4.00

    Winston Reid

    Opened the scoring for the visitors from six yards after his initial header bounced off Kevin Nolan. Dominate at the back and won everything in the air.

  • James Tomkins
    16
    2
    2.50

    James Tomkins

    Lost track of Defoe a couple of times but on the whole was very assured and read the game well. Tested Lloris at the other end with a header from a corner.

  • R. Raţ
    16
    4
    3.00

    R. Raţ

    Coped fairly well with the threat of Townsend, forcing the Spurs winger outside on to his weaker right foot.

  • Guy Demel
    12
    4
    2.50

    Guy Demel

    Too physical and athletic for Sigurdsson as he made strong challenges and won 50-50s.

  • Kevin Nolan
    14
    6
    2.50

    Kevin Nolan

    Took up good positions in midfield and always an attacking threat. Should have scored with a volley just before half-time but missed the target.

  • Ravel Morrison
    42
    5
    4.00

    Ravel Morrison Top of the Match

    Classy and mature display from the young midfielder and he capped it off with a stunning goal, dinking the ball over Hugo Lloris after running half the length of the pitch. So much technique and confidence in possession, even under pressure.

  • Mark Noble
    18
    2
    4.00

    Mark Noble

    Set the tone for West Ham's performance with his work-rate and passing in central midfield. The Hammers' creative hub and he played a lovely ball to Vaz Te for his side's second goal.

  • Mohamed Diame
    22
    2
    3.50

    Mohamed Diame

    Powerful pressing and running in midfield and effective on the counter-attack - highlighted with the turn and pass in the build-up to the third goal.

  • Stewart Downing
    15
    6
    3.00

    Stewart Downing

    The winger's left foot caused Spurs problems and he was very disciplined with his tracking back at the other end.

  • Ricardo Vaz Te
    15
    3
    2.50

    Ricardo Vaz Te

    Needed a touch of fortune to score his side's second goal after the ball bounced back off his thigh. Had been quiet until that moment but possessed a counter-attacking threat.

Substitutions

  • Joey O'Brien

    Joey O'Brien

    Came on for Noble in added time.

  • James Collins
