Other than picking the ball up out of his net, had nothing to do all afternoon until making a fantastic save to deny Odemwingie's header.
Solid performance at the heart of the host's defense, he ably marshaled after they conceded the opener though was provided by the odd scare from Odemwingie.
Withdrawn after five minutes when he was injured during West Brom's opener.
Looked out of sorts at right back, with West Brom intent on providing a test of his capabilities. Came good though and put in a solid display that saw him threaten down the right regularly.
Commanding presence at the back that saw him rarely beaten in the air or on foot.
Dictated play from deep with an excellent range of passing and was the foundation that allowed Spurs more progressive players to come to the fore. Replaced on the hour mark
R. van der Vaart
Stung Carson's palms with a great effort in the first half and was creative and innovative throughout.
A real live-wire throughout, crafting opportunities and linking the midfield and front two with endless guile. Another eye catching performance with intelligent use of the ball.
Fantastic finish for the goal but should have added to his tally for the day. Wastefully missed the rebound from a Van der Vaart effort and would have been upset not to see at least one of his headed attempts hit the target.
Always probing down the left even when forced to switch to left-back. A constant cause of problems all day for Olsson.
Looked desperately short of confidence and interest before stepping up to sink a great goal. Much improved in the second half.
Had no chance with Pavyluchenko's goal but otherwise made a couple of decent stops as well as fully commanding his area with Spurs opting to pump balls into the box on a regular basis.
Had to cope with Spurs' relentless attacking drive and stood up to the test reasonably well.
Came off just before half-time nursing a knock. Had a torrid afternoon but stood up well in the face of Spurs' waves of attack.
Was made to look pedestrian by a raiding Bale as the full back was beaten again, and again down his side.
Steady yet uninspiring performance. Did his job on the day, no more, no less.
Sat deep and tried to quell Spurs' forward momentum. Put in a few crunching tackles but was largely over-ran and out-thought in the middle of the park
His pressure on the ball let to his team's opener. A big, physical presence in the middle of the park but a lot of the time the play passed him over with the subtlety of Spurs' more creative entities coming to the fore.
Started the game brightly down the left before becoming more subdued as the game developed.
A quiet game from the captain who seemed unable to get himself into the game but provided plenty of bluster.
Assured finish for the goal against the run of play but otherwise wasn't really given a sniff all afternoon.
Did well for the goal but was forced to drop deeper and deeper in the quest to get on the ball and accordingly saw his influence wane.

Powerhouse display when he came on, covering every blade of grass on the pitch. Put himself around and showed composure on the ball in equal measure. Top stuff.
Came on with half an hour left and provided the spark his side desperately required.

Came on in the dying moments
