Stood no chance with Modric's goal, and was largely let down by his defenders for the opener. Organised his side better in the second half, as the Baggies spent much of the period on the front foot.
Handled Lennon well throughout the match. The speedy Spurs winger hardly got a look-in against the former Reading and Aston Villa man. A sturdy performance from the full-back.
Did well to keep up with Bale, and was constantly snapping at the Welshman’s heels. Struggled more with the attacking full-back in the second half, but overall Di Matteo will have been pleased with his showing.
At fault with Tamas for Modric's goal. His performance improved after the interval, although he was rarely called into action as Spurs failed to test the home side's backline.
Largely at fault for Modric’s goal. Was unable to clear effectively when challenging Pavlyuchenko, despite Olsson’s support. Recovered well as the game progressed.
Very composed start to game, sweeping the midfield and preying on loose passes exceptionally well. Unfazed by Palacios' heavy challenges and was a key component in the Albion midfield.
Went close to equalising minutes after Modric’s goal, but his header from Brunt’s free-kick drifted just wide. He then thit a 30-yard pile-driver at the Italian's goal, and missed by inches. Was replaced by Steven Reid on 72 minutes.
After looking to supply his teammates with numerous deliveries, the midfielder was on hand to head home from close range to bag the equaliser. Replaced by Giles Barnes with just over ten minutes remaining.
Leading the line on his own, the former Celtic man struggled to overpower Kaboul in the first-half. He battled well throughout, but despite his involvement in the build-up to Brunt's goal, rarely offered much threat in attack.
Persistent tracking of Lennon evoked much praise from the home faithful in the early stages. Forced a wonder-save out of Cudicini with minutes left on the clock, with a curling effort which would have been good enough to win any match.
Faultless for West Brom's opening goal. The Italian offered a far more composed performance than his showing at White Hart Lane last time out against Wigan.
By far the most dominate of the Spurs defenders. Showed good strength in an early exchange with Fortune. He built on his impressive first-half performance alongside Gallas, as the home side pressed heavily during large periods of the half.
The ever calm Croatian covered well for Lennon and Van der Vaart, as Spurs fluid attack reshuffled in front of him.
Quiet first-half. His debut seemed more in-keeping with a rising academy rookie than an experienced professional. His performance picked-up after the interval, and the run of Fortune brilliantly to deny the forward. Booked after a cynical challenge on Odemwingie.
A quiet afternoon by his standards. Whether the weight of responsibility as captain stifled his attacking play is unknown, but the midfielder had to stay deeper than usual due to Spurs' abundance of playmakers.
Fortunate to escape an early booking after tripping Thomas. The Hondurian tussled with Odemwingie throughout the match, and without him Spurs could have become severely stretched.
Had the first opportunity of the match, but scuffed his shot over Carson’s crossbar. Made amends on 25 minutes with a well-taken drive. Replaced shortly after, following a heavy collision.
R. van der Vaart
After a tepid start, the Dutchman began to see more of the ball as he floated around the final third. It was his cross which Tamas was unable to deal with, resulting in Modric’s goal. Tried his luck from distance on two occasions just before the break, with only a 25-yard free-kick hitting the target, forcing a comfortable save out of Carson.
Should have given Spurs the lead on six minutes, but blazed his left-footed shot over the bar. Saw more of the ball as the match went on, with Spurs looking to stretch their opponents, but Shorey was always on hand to supress his attacking bursts.
A performance full of the power and pace you now expect from the Welshman. Should have doubled Spurs' tally in the second half after latching onto a great pass from Van der Vaart.
Confounded many of his critics in the lone-striker role. With little to feed on, the Russian continued to hassle the West Bromwich backline at every opportunity. Replaced by Robbie Keane on 64 minutes.
- 13 G. Myhill
His strength was probably added in case Spurs went on the attack in the dying moments, but as it turned out, Di Matteo could have afforded to have been more adventurous.
- 6 Pablo Ibáñez
Was handed a four minute run-out by his manager, but was hardly enough time to make a difference.
- 9 R. Bednar
Replaced Brunt but failed to make any significant impact on the proceedings.
- 31 S. Cox
- 37 S. Pletikosa
- 19 S. Bassong
- 32 B. Assou-Ekotto
- 8 J. Jenas
Reminded Redknapp of his talents after replacing Modric in the first-half. Showed extreme competence on the ball and enough guile in his passing to more than adequately deputise for his Croatian teammate.
Replaced Pavlychenko on 64 minutes, and offered considerable energy in attack. Tested Carson with a dipping volley in the dying minutes of the match.
Replaced Lennon on 77 minutes to offer a new dimension to Spurs' attack, but despite offering a taller body in the box, the England striker made little impact.
