Was a passenger in the first half and could only stand and watch Bale's sideshow. Powerless to prevent any of the Welshman's three strikes.
Had looked commanding in the opening stage of the game but thereafter his presence was barely required.
Understated performance from the Romanian, provided a good foil for the more creative midfield players but was economical and progressive with his passing.
Guarded his flank against Bale's foraging runs and restricted the Welshman's output. Got forward to good effect and tested Cudicini's handling with a pair of rasping drives towards the end of the first half.
Chaperoned Crouch and dealt comfortably with everything Spurs threw at him, which wasn't much all things considered.
Well-taken goal, curled the ball beautifully around Gomes to give his side the lead early in the game.
Lovely combination with Eto'o before thumping the ball past Cudicini to give Inter a commanding first half lead. Picked up an ankle injury early in the second half and was withdrawn.
Lively from the young Brazilian. Supplied a precise reverse pass to split the Tottenham defence for Inter's fourth goal of the night. Showed some bursts of South American flair with weaving dribbles at Hutton and was ambitious, if sometimes wasteful, with his passing.
Wonderful pass through to Biabiany in the build-up to Inter's second goal. Became quieter as Inter cemented their lead but still showcased some intricate touches.
Made a bright start and was brought down by Gomes after chipping the keeper in a one-on-one to gain his side a penalty. Faded as the game progressed.
Perfectly placed pass to assist Inter's opener before coolly tucking away a penalty to give his side a two goal lead. Cute first-time lay-off to assist Stankovic and got Inter's fourth with a good run in behind the Tottenham backline before providing a tidy finish.
Helpless for the opening goal but gave away penalty in the first ten minutes before being somewhat harshly dismissed.
Lost Eto'o for Inter's fourth and couldn't made the ground up on the Cameroon international. Experienced at this level and has no excuse for mistakes of that nature.
A more composed performance than his central defensive counterpart. Made a very good last ditch tackle on Sneijder as the Dutchman jinked past Gallas into the penalty area.
Got the run around by Coutinho but wasn't completely embarrassed by the Brazilian. Stayed tight to his man and wasn't guilty of any glaring defensive mistakes. Made a driving infield run in the dying stages but his shot went well over.
Caught napping as Sneijdner played the ball in behind him leading up to the penalty. Unforgivable considering Spurs had already conceded.
Sacrificed for Cudicini after Gomes was sent off, had no opportunity to get a foothold in the game in his brief appearance.
Looked out of his depth, failed to influence the game going forward and didn't track Zanetti for the opening goal. His lacklustre performance only served to highlight Van der Vaart's absence.
Did well to find Crouch with a deep cross when in double coverage and was one of the few Tottenham players who kept his head up after a demoralising first half. Made a mazey infield run to set up Bale for the Welshman's third goal of the night.
Largely anonymous contribution from the Englishman. Lost the midfield battle but played a part in ensuring Sneijdner wasn't completely dominant.
Continued to provide an outlet for Spurs and got a couple of decent crosses into the penalty area for his side. Didn't look overawed when facing Maicon and scored two outstanding individual goals with two solo runs and equally sumptuous strikes to finish. Added a third goal in the dying seconds to complete a stunning hat-trick.
Wasted a good opportunity to test Cesar when Lennon picked him out with a cross from the right in the first half, sending his header well over the bar. Generally struggled to make the ball stick and offered his side very little before being replaced by Robbie Keane.
- 12 L. Castellazzi
Replaced the injured Stankovic at the start of the second half. Had a shot that nearly snuck into the bottom left-hand corner.
Replaced Biabiany as Inter looked to add defensive solidity with 15 minutes to play.
- 23 M. Materazzi
- 19 E. Cambiasso
- 11 S. Muntari
On for Chivu as Inter looked to close out the game.
Couldn't do anything to stop Inter's second or third goals, but made a poor attempt to prevent Eto'o scoring Inter's fourth. Also made a few handling errors but improved as the game went on.
- 4 Y. Kaboul
- 5 D. Bentley
A rare appearance for the Honduran who replaced Huddlestone with 10 minutes remaining. Booked in the final minutes for a cynical tackle on Lucio.
- 21 N. Kranjčar
- 9 R. Pavlyuchenko
Replaced Peter Crouch and had a negligible impact.
