Commanded his box well when necessary and made one good stop from Defoe's powerful shot.
Might have believed he'd be in for a tough evening up against Walker and Bale but spent most of the game at the other end of the pitch. Uses the ball so well for a full-back and started the move which led to the opener with a fine drilled pass.
Clearly has the raw talent to be a success but still frustratingly erratic. Failed to put his stamp on the game due to some poor decision making.
Not always rock solid against Defoe's pace but marshalled Adebayor well.
Ensured Defoe had only scraps to feed on by remaining tight to the England forward but made a couple of silly challenges which could have cost his side.
As dependable as ever at full-back. Solid if unspectacular.
Kept things simple in midfield recycling the ball well and making some clever interceptions.
A real livewire from out wide. Seems to have improved his ball retention and on this form deserves his place in David Moyes' side after previously struggling to keep it.
Created Jelavic's opener with a brilliant piece of footwork before laying the ball off. Put in some impressive defensive work as well.
Sealed a dream full debut with a brilliantly taken goal from Osman's pull back. Substituted with 10 minutes remaining after clearly tiring but showed much promise against a mean Spurs defence.
Didn't contribute as much as he might have liked but often made space for others with his clever movement.
Not really tested beyond picking the ball out of his net following Jelavic's first-half goal.
Ensured Osman had to drift to find space and as eager as ever to get forward.
Generally solid against the burgeoning partnership of Cahill and Jelavic but was completely bamboozled by Osman's jinking run prior to the opener.
Could do little to prevent the goal but cleared everything else that came his way.
Ineffective from the right as Everton simply passed him inside and prevented the shot.
Didn't show anywhere near enough to justify his inclusion in the centre ahead of Luka Modric - who was shifted to a left-sided role.
So often heralded for his tackling but showed real quality on the ball on several occasions spreading the play with aplomb.
Struggled to influence the game from wide but, typically, didn't waste a pass.
Failed to get into the game and was rightly replaced by Louis Saha 10 minutes into the second half.
Fought well upfront but failed to score when presented with two great opportunities in the box.
- 1 J. Mucha
Made his return from injury as a second-half substitute and looked solid against the inevitable onslaught from Harry Redknapp's men.
- 2 T. Hibbert
Solidified the midfield as Tottenham pushed hard for an equaliser.
Came on to hold the ball and buy Everton time and did that brilliantly on several occasions.
- 28 V. Anichebe
- 19 M. Gueye
- 33 R. Nelsen
- 23 C. Cudicini
- 25 D. Rose
R. van der Vaart
Couldn't alleviate Spurs' attacking woes against a staunch Everton defence.
- 21 N. Kranjčar
Had little time to change matters.
Improved on Adebayor's pale showing but couldn't hurt his old side with a telling contribution.
