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

    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

    12
    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

    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

    2.50

    Kyle Naughton

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

  • Michael Dawson

    Michael Dawson

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

  • Paulinho
    1

    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
    0
    10
    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
    0
    9
    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
    0
    9
    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
    5
    7
    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
    1
    13
    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

    Lewis Holtby

    Came on for Naughton nine minutes from time.

  • Roberto Soldado

    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
    2
    7
    2.00

    Erik Lamela

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

  • Jussi Jaaskelainen
    6
    1
    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
    8
    1
    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
    6
    1
    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
    4
    1
    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
    6
    1
    2.50

    Guy Demel

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

  • Kevin Nolan
    8
    2
    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
    13
    1
    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
    5
    0
    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
    7
    0
    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
    9
    0
    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
    6
    1
    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.
