Was rarely tested by a Tottenham attack hampered by poor passing and a lack of sufficient numbers after the Naughton red card. His team also protected him very well for the most part, though he did make two impressive stops - from a Townsend drive and a Bentaleb strike. Powerless to prevent Dier's late winner.
Lennon's natural inclination to cut inside from the left meant his pace was never tested before the Naughton red. Lamela became his direct opponent after that but the Argentine more often preferred to drift into a central position.
Kept Adebayor's back to goal and helped ensure there was no space in behind for the likes of Lamela and Lennon to exploit.
West Ham's deep defensive line helped prevent Adebayor from isolating him one-on-one for 63 minutes but once the Togo international did, the Welshman had no answer beyond a cynical foul which yielded a deserved second yellow card and a dismissal.
Enjoyed a very impressive debut, marshaling Lamela with great assurance and usually providing accurate long balls up to Cole.
The most dangerous player on the pitch until Collins was sent off, producing consistently dangerous deliveries from wide and unleashing one low shot which had Lloris worried.
Always dangerous in getting to second balls in the Tottenham penalty area and forced the penalty with a hard shot which Naughton blocked with his arm.
Kept things ticking over without wowing anyone with his skill but missed his side's best chance to break the deadlock from 12 yards. One forward surge in the second half forced a decent stop from Lloris.
Showed great energy to shut down Eriksen's space and drove forward whenever he could, but wayward shooting ensured he never managed to test Lloris.
Ricardo Vaz Té
A surprise starter on the left flank, he contributed little beyond diligently tracking Naughton's early forays forward before being replaced by Diame on 68 minutes.
Acquitted himself well alone up front, troubling Kaboul, Dier and Capoue with his physicality and creating chances for teammates without carrying much of a threat himself. Faded as the game wore on though.
Could only watch as Noble's penalty trickled wide of his post but made some significant saves after that as Tottenham slowly clawed their way back into the game.
Gave Downing far too much room and did not produce enough himself going forward, though Naughton's red card saw him saddled with increased defensive responsibilities.
Vaz Te gave him little to worry about but he saw red after just 29 minutes when he blocked a Nolan shot with his arm.
Paired with two unfamiliar partners over the course of the afternoon he always looked vulnerable to the brute force of Cole and West Ham's midfield runners.
Seemed to freeze at times amid West Ham's aerial bombardment on his Premier League debut but improved after he was shifted to right back. The unlikely hero late on as he rounded Adrian to slot in the winner.
Drifted around the final third but found space between the lines in short supply for most of the match. Also wasted a couple of promising free-kick opportunities.
Could not help his team find any real passing rhythm early on and after circumstances dictated he move to center back his positional play declined dramatically.
Composed at the base of midfield even in adversity and always tried to be progressive on the ball, even if his inexperience showed on occasion. Stung the palms of Adrian late on.
Never looked comfortable starting on the left and did not give Adebayor or any of his creative partners any real service to speak of.
Struggled to impose himself on Collins and Reid but eventually managed to get the Welshman sent off, though he could not capitalize on the space produced by the red card. Replaced by Kane on 83 minutes.
Had slick moments but is still some way from producing a Premier League performance which justifies his immense talent. Denied space and service here.
