Solid performance from the experienced Dane, made comfortable saves from Sandro and Pavlyuchenko efforts and won Stoke the game with crucial penalty stop.
Played well at full-back, was solid in the tackle and also got forward well which pegged the usually ambitious Assou-Ekotto back into his half. Scored what ended up being the winning penalty.
Continues to look comfortable in an unfamiliar role. Was untroubled throughout most of the match and also showed a willingness to attack.
Looked solid and physical in his more familiar central defensive role after playing on the right in recent fixtures. Booked.
Partnered Huth well, regularly organising his back-line. Evening was made easier by the poor performances of Spurs' attacking players.
A solid game out wide from the former Arsenal man, who showed his usual array of good set-piece delivery and a range of passing. Hit bar with penalty but was saved by Pavlyuchenko's miss and Sorensen's save.
Unspectacular performance from the Irishman. Rarely gave the ball away but failed to produce any penetrative passes.
Nothing out of the ordinary from the Honduran, who ran hard in the midfield and looked to contain the creative threat of Van der Vaart before being substituted in the 65th minute.
Was Stoke's most potent attacking threat throughout the match creating a handful of opportunities and had a few efforts from distance.
Worked hard during his time on the pitch but a lack of creativity from his team-mates resulted in a lack of chances for the former Birmingham man.
Failed to make an impact in his short time on the pitch, and will be ruing a missed opportunity to stake a claim for a first-team place.
Had little to do but still managed to look uncertain throughout, further backing up Redknapp's decision to sign 40-year-old Friedel this summer.
A solid performance from the Cameroonian defender. Was outshone by his defensive partner but will have no complaints about his own display.
Is often a useful attacking threat down the left for Spurs but failed to make an impact on the evening, defended well, however.
Solid game from the Croatian against the tricky, Etherington. Showed little attempt to join the attack which resulted in a lack of width.
Was the outstanding player on the pitch during normal time, comfortably dealing with Crouch, Jerome and Walters throughout, also showing a decent range of passing from the back. Confidently lashed home from the spot.
Was booked but that didn't tarnish a good performance as he continued his step-up into the first team with a solid display.
Showed no ill effects of his recent injury lay-off in a 70-minute outing. Displayed a good level of fitness and also gained attention with a new eye-catching hair-do.
R. van der Vaart
Continued his comeback from injury with an impressive performance showing nice touches and typically intelligent play.
Showed some good touches in midfield playing in a wider role and looks like he could be one to watch in the future.
G. dos Santos
Again failed to live up to his reputation and potential. Has vocally expressed his wish to leave White Hart Lane and looks unwilling to try his best for Redknapp.
Looked poor and uninterested throughout, regularly drifting out of position and gave the ball away countless times. Hit Sorensen with a shot when Dos Santos was better positioned. His penalty blazed over the bar in the shootout which summed up his whole performance.
- 27 C. Nash
- 28 A. Wilkinson
- 24 R. Delap
- 14 D. Pugh
Substituted on in the second half and used his experience well in a steady and composed performance.
Struggled against his former club as Stoke looked to utilise his height and was dominated by Kaboul and Bassong.
Had a gilt-edged chance to open the scoring in extra-time but was unable to find the net when one-on-one with Gomes.
- 23 C. Cudicini
Another of Spurs' young players to come on and he showed good touches in the middle of midfield, partnering Livermore well. Was unfortunate to have missed the crucial spot-kick.
Brought on in extra-time in an attempt to inject pace into a sluggish match and took on his man a couple of times but was unable to have a big impact on the game.
In-form striker brought on in an attempt to grab a second-half goal but Spurs' lack of creativity left him starved of good opportunities.
