A spectator beyond collecting a dangerous Bale cross in the first half.
Helped make for an interesting 'battle of the England full backs' by giving an assured performance up against Kyle Walker. Did great work going both ways in an unfamiliar role on the left.
Part of an imperious partnership which ensured Adebayor had to drop deep for any joy.
Couldn't be faulted going toward his own goal but left a lot to be desired in an attacking sense. Still learning.
Composed on the ground and dominant in the air, a complete performance from the Dane.
Still a bit ring rusty or unable to provide the cut and thrust of old? Far from classic Gerrard but the midfielder is still the outstanding midfielder in his side.
Passed the ball well but was part of a problem in terms of cutting edge. Never really found a killer pass.
Hard-working defensively but misplaced several passes at key moments in broken play.
Kept Assou-Ekotto shackled but did not do near enough going forward. Rightly replaced by Suarez.
Has been getting better and better over recent weeks and showed why here. A real handful for the Spurs defense and unlucky not to find the chance which his performance merited.
Didn't hit the levels of recent performances and was cleverly marshaled by the less-experienced Walker.
Despite Liverpool's domination toward the end, the American was comfortable throughout.
Not a usual starter but looked as if he had never been away with a composed performance.
As Fabio Capello watched on he may have wondered what might have been if King had not suffered so terribly from injuries. A rock in defense.
Given very little license to go forward from the tireless Kuyt but solid the other way.
With Fabio Capello watching on, Walker did himself no harm with an assured showing.
Nowhere near his usual self. His subdued performance was largely thanks to the defensive work of Kelly.
Allowed the game to pass him by somewhat and won't be challenging Rafael van der Vaart's position anytime soon.
One of the tidiest midfielders in world football did not disappoint. At the heart of everything Spurs do.
Gets so much praise for his defensive work but showed his neatness in possession here as part of a passing carousel with Modric.
Some tidy touches but nowhere near the threat that Spurs would have enjoyed through Aaron Lennon.
Starved of service but frustrated by the dominance of Skrtel and Agger when fortunate enough to get the ball.

Brought on to provide bite but failed to do so.
A real live wire upon his return but missed the best opportunity of the match with a header straight at Friedel. Also received a booking for a wild kick at Scott Parker.
