Had a far quieter afternoon than his opposite number and his first major task was to pick the ball up from the net after Ramsey's equaliser.
Enhanced his reputation with a fine display in both the defensive and attacking thirds, culminating in his first ever goal for the club, a slightly hopeful but well hit long-ranger that squired through Szczesny's grasp.
Solid display from the Cameroon international, who was shrewd enough to guide Walcott on the inside rather than allow the turbo-charged England man to get outside of him.
Once again Spurs' lucky omen as he brilliantly led by word and outstanding deed in central defence.
A cocktail of the very good, the half-decent and the wayward from the powerful Frenchman, who dominated in the air but was occasionally clumsy on the deck. Made some spirited runs forward.
R. van der Vaart
Scored his fourth goal in three north London derbies - and the 10,000th of all time for Spurs - with his clinically dispatched volley. The Dutchman was heavily involved throughout, and was perhaps fortunate to escape a red card after following his yellow card for a terrible challenge on Gibbs with his controversial goal celebration. But he sent through a stream of enticing crosses from the right flank and his movement was clever enough to manipulate some excellent goalscoring positions. Withdrawn after 63 minutes for his own good.
Energy and class from the left-sided flier, who delivered a series of tempting crosses on an afternoon when he consistently had the beating of Sagna, and then Jenkinson, with his pace and timing. Came close to scoring with a couple of scorching long-range rockets and a one-on-one with Szczesny.
Quiet in the opening hour as Spurs were out-numbered in midfield but became far more influential following the introduction of Sandro and controlled the game in the last 20 minutes.
Fine display in central midfield after being initially overshadowed by his opposite number, Coquelin. Should have done better with a one-on-one with Szczesny in the early exchanges but made some excellent interception, particularly in the latter stages.
The former Arsenal man was on the receiving end of some disgraceful chants from the away end but kept his composure with a controlled and inspired display. Set up Van der Vaart's goal with a smart cross and was a constant threat with his pace and power.
Preferred to Sandro as Redknapp opted to play two strikers but struggled to justify his selection in a quiet display until the last 10 minutes when Spurs carved out chances at will.
Blotted what would have been a man-of-the-match display with his fluffed attempt at keeping out Walker's hopeful long-ranger. But the young Pole demonstrated excellent reflexes and positioning either side of his error to deny Parker, Van der Vaart, Adebayor, Bale and Defoe.
Demonstrated a sure touch in congested areas and made some fine interceptions but was occasionally caught out by the intensity of the occasion and both of the Spurs goals reflected poorly on the German following mis-communication in the Arsenal back four.
Had a rare defensive off day as he struggled to cope with the brilliance of Bale. But his attacking forays were always laced with menace and he sent in some fine crosses. Stretchered off after colliding with the advertising hoarding.
Van der Vaart's movement caused him problems but he stuck to his task well and was confident on the ball.
Neat and tidy display by the Spaniard but was unable to quite dominate the midfield. Arsenal fans will expect more invention from the deep-lying playmaker as he settles in at the club.
Impressive display by the young Frenchman, who had been given the nod ahead of Frimpong. Settled in well with a solid early tackle on Adebayor and made a string of excellent interceptions. Used the ball intelligently and without fuss.
Once again cast as a makeshift centre-half and began in horrible fashion by missing a tackle on Adebayor and almost immediately afterwards losing the ball to give Parker a one-on-one with Szczesny. Grew in stature as the game wore on and expertly set up the equaliser with a fine run and cross.
Rested from the starting XI in midweek after his busy start to the season and it had the desired effect. Steered in the equaliser after a well timed run from midfield. Cast in the playmaker role, he was unable to provide the creativity that Arsenal would have wanted with some rather predictable use of the ball.
Nearly scored with a pair of fizzing left-foot shots in the opening period but was generally anonymous on the right flank after passing a late fitness test on the morning of the match. Withdrawn after 71 minutes.
R. van Persie
Resourceful and energetic display by the Arsenal skipper, but struggled to get much change out of the two special K's, Kaboul and King.
Squandered a brilliant opportunity to put his team ahead after half an hour and showed only glimpses of his pace and trickery. Subbed with 15 minutes left.
- 23 C. Cudicini
Came on for Parker in the last minute.
- 19 S. Bassong
Brought solidity to the midfield after replacing Van der Vaart and played a key role in the build up to Walker's goal by evading a number of Arsenal players.
Helped shore up the midfield in the closing minutes.
- 17 G. dos Santos
- 9 R. Pavlyuchenko
- 21 Ł. Fabiański
- 11 André Santos
Had a tough derby baptism against the resourceful Bale after replacing the injured Sagna.
Made little impact after replacing Gervinho.
Brought greater invention to the midfield after replacing Walcott and made some good runs. Booked in added time for a clumsy challenge.
- E. Frimpong
- 9 Chu-Young Park
