    Hugo Lloris

    A couple of shaky punches and kicks but could not stop the West Ham goals.

  • Kyle Walker

    Kyle Walker

    Captain for Spurs on the night. Solid defensively and bombed forward at every opportunity.

  • Vlad Iulian Chiricheş

    Vlad Iulian Chiricheş

    Coped well with the physical threat of Cole but beaten too easily in the air in the build-up to West Ham's equaliser.

  • Danny Rose

    Danny Rose

    Looked fairly sharp on his second game back. Sometimes a little reluctant to attack.

  • Etienne Capoue

    Etienne Capoue Flop of the Match

    Coped fairly well in central defence but didn't offer a challenge as Maiga headed home the winner.

  • Andros Townsend

    2.50

    Andros Townsend

    Back in the side on the left wing, where he looked to commit defenders and deliver crosses. One strike just wide early on but final delivery was hit and miss. Came off with a hamstring injury in the 73rd minute.

  • Mousa Dembélé

    2.00

    Mousa Dembélé

    Played the slightly deeper role of the two central midfielders. As usual, carried the ball well but sometimes delayed his pass too long and slowed the game down.

  • Gylfi Sigurdsson
    0

    2.50

    Gylfi Sigurdsson

    Looked to link up Spurs attacks and arrive at the edge of the box. Had a couple of half chances and did a decent job, although he lacked the guile of predecessors in that role like Luka Modric.

  • Aaron Lennon
    0
    0
    2.50

    Aaron Lennon

    Jinked past defenders to get in good positions but crossing too often hit the first man.

  • Jermain Defoe

    2.50

    Jermain Defoe

    Did very well to jink down the left and produce a fantastic cross for Adebayor's goal. Struggled once the hosts changed formation and he was asked to lead the line.

  • Emmanuel Adebayor
    0

    3.00

    Emmanuel Adebayor

    An impressive return to the line-up marked with a fantastic goal in the 67th minute. Led the line well before being replaced in the 78th minute.

Substitutions

  • Ezekiel Fryers

    Ezekiel Fryers

    Came on in the 62nd minute but allowed Diame too much space.

  • Lewis Holtby

    Lewis Holtby

    No impact after coming on for Adebayor 12 minutes from time.

  • Nacer Chadli

    2.50

    Nacer Chadli

    Came on for the injured Townsend in the 73rd minute. Delayed too long when he had a glorious chance to score.

  • Adrián San Miguel Del Castillo

    Adrián San Miguel Del Castillo

    Decent display from the back-up goalkeeper included a great late save off Sigurdsson. Good handling when needed and could do nothing about Adebayor's goal.

  • George McCartney

    George McCartney

    Did a good job at left-back up against the threat of Defoe and Adebayor, although he may have been caught under the ball a little for the Spurs goal.

  • R. Raţ

    R. Raţ

    Identified by Spurs as a weak link and easily beaten at times, but he kept plugging away.

  • Joey O'Brien

    Joey O'Brien

    Decent job up against both Townsend and Lennon as he looked to force them wide and then block the cross. Brilliant sliding challenge on Chadli when the Belgian was through on goal.

  • James Collins

    3.50

    James Collins

    Powerful in the air, especially up against Adebayor and made some important interventions.

  • Matthew Jarvis

    0
    3.00

    Matthew Jarvis

    Made little impact in attack until he popped up 10 minutes from time with an emphatic finish into the roof of the net.

  • Jack Collison

    Jack Collison

    Worked hard to press Spurs midfielders but showed very little quality on the rare occasions he got the ball.

  • Matthew Taylor

    2.50

    Matthew Taylor

    Beaten too easily on the touchline by Defoe in the build-up to Adebayor's goal, but made up for it with a clever pass to set up Jarvis' equaliser.

  • Alou Diarra
    0
    0
    2.50

    Alou Diarra

    Made one crucial challenge to deny Adebayor in the first-half and took up good positions to try and stop Spurs playing between the lines.

  • Joe Cole

    0
    2.50

    Joe Cole

    Only showed his quality in glimpses and failed to produce the killer pass on a couple of occasions when play opened up for him on the counter-attack.

  • Carlton Cole

    2.50

    Carlton Cole

    Very isolated as West Ham's lone striker but worked hard to stretch the Spurs defence before being replaced by Maiga in the 65th minute due to injury.

Substitutions

  • Ravel Morrison

    Ravel Morrison

    Some classy moments after coming on for Diarra 11 minutes from time.

  • Mohamed Diame

    Mohamed Diame

    Tested Lloris with a fierce right-footed volley after coming on for Cole 20 minutes from time before crossing for Maiga's winner.

  • Modibo Maiga

    Modibo Maiga Top of the Match

    Came on for the final 25 minutes and produced a lovely flick-on in the build-up to Jarvis' strike before heading home the winner five minutes later.
