Helpless to prevent Rosicky's stunning opener. Had little else to do but made a sharp save to deny Mertesacker in the second-half.
Caught on his heels for Rosicky's goal and lacked support defensively. Good athleticism and looked to support attacks.
The subject of Tim Sherwood's ire after one particularly half-hearted attempt to stop Oxlade-Chamberlain. Solid on the whole but looked too casual at times and could have conceded a penalty on Koscielny in the second-half.
Poor positioning from the right-back as Arsenal were allowed to easily play balls in behind him. Decent enough on position and produced one dangerous cross in the first-half.
Some strong challenges and headers but the Frenchman was susceptible to Arsenal's movement on the counter-attack.
Rather quiet in the first-half but direct dribbling style caused Arsenal problems after the break.
Some moments of quality but found himself rather isolated on the left at times. Looked more dangerous when he drifted inside to central areas.
One of Tottenham's more impressive players with his touch and strength, but the Belgian was poor in the final third. Denied by Koscielny's block when he had a magnificent chance to score just after the re-start.
A passenger for much of the game. Poor passing and didn't seem in tune with the pace of the game.
Snapped into tackles and broke up Arsenal's play, but the Brazilian will be disappointed with the way he lost possession in the build-up to Rosicky's goal.
Worked hard but sometimes appeared to be trying to do too much on his own. No real chances to score but poked a volley just wide in the first half.
Had almost nothing to do in the first half but struggled under the pressure of high balls in the second half.
Booked for a late challenge on Rose in the first half but produced a strong defensive performance on the whole.
The centre-back was always ready to put his body on the line and he produced a wonderful block to deny Chadli a certain goal early in the second half.
Towering in the air up against Adebayor and made several interventions around the penalty box as the Gunners kept a clean sheet. Almost scored at the other end with a sharp volley.
Beaten too easily by Townsend a couple of times but showed good pace and used the ball well to support attacks.
Some tidy control as he looked to get in between the lines and worked hard to put Spurs midfielders under pressure.
The Spaniard kept his passing simple and efficient but was overrun at times, particularly in the second half.
Stunned White Hart Lane with a wonderful half-volley into the top corner in just the second minute. A fitting goal to win the match and a bright overall performance.
Always looked a threat on the counterattack as he looked to get in behind Naughton. Hammered his best chance into the side netting in the first half.
Rather ineffective display from the Frenchman as he lacked the movement and speed to exploit the space in behind the Spurs back line.
Arsenal's most dangerous player with his close control and dribbling speed. Had chances to score but lacked composure, most notably when he dinked over Lloris but wide of the post.
