Fine two-handed save from Sneijder free-kick and safely dealt with the long-range strikers that came his way. The former AC Milan man was troubled less than he might have expected.
Often the weak link in the Spurs back line but linked intelligently with Bale and will have been relieved that his team-mate's magnificent kept Maicon quiet.
The adventurous right-back got in some excellent positions but his delivery and decision-making was hit-and-miss. Dealt capably with Pandev.
Under-rated but developing into a beast of a centre-half. His brute strength and aerial prowess kept the blue-and-black attacks at arms length.
Might not be to everyone's tastes but his experience and pedigree crucial to keeping the back door shut.
Looked cumbersome at times after missing two games with an ankle injury but grew in stature as the game wore on and began pinging his trademark Hollywood passes.
R. van der Vaart
Smashed home his sixth goal in five White Hart Lane appearances with absolute conviction and took up some superb positions all over the front line. Substituted at half-time with a recurrence of the hamstring injury he sufferd at the weekend
At his most electric on a night when he looked like the player he should be more often. His speed and trickery ensured Spurs hummed on both flanks.
Brilliant feet and vision to lay on Tottenham's opener and fused silk and steel in the central acres. A masterful midfield display.
A star was confirmed in the San Siro and his reputation was enhanced even further with an even more stunning display on the left flank that will give Maicon nightmares for years to come. Has surely added around £10m to his fee with his magnificent performances over the two Inter matches. If there were any doubts that he is world class before, there are none now.
Won his fair share of headers but his touch was not adhesive enough. His poacher's goal made amends for blasting a volley wide when he should have slid the unmarked van der Vaart in for a tap-in. Substituted with 15 minutes left.
Making his first start since joining the club in the summer of 2009, he did litttle wrong apart from one flimsy punch but lacked the aura of the injured Cesar.
Mixed cynicism with resilience and just about kept his head above water in as tough an examination of his team's sturdiness that he will have experienced for some time.
The Inter legend was given the run-around by Modric as, for once, he looked every single one of his 37 years.
Handled Crouch capably and Tottenham's attacking zest was not enough to stem his trademark forays forward but will not look back fondly on a night when the normally impregnable defence was torn apart.
The right-back's powerful romps down the flank were initially one of Inter's biggest attacking threats but his defensive frailties were exposed by Bale's brilliance and was found wanting time after time at the back as Spurs made Inter pay down his flank.
Looked like a craggy scrum-half in his skull cap and frequently resorted to the darker arts to subdue the lively Lennon.
The Tottenham target frittered on the edges of the action and was unable to quell Spurs's mastery of the midfield before he was substituted through injury in the 53rd minute.
Yet to hit the heights of his spectacular 09/10 season and was neat without being as effective as he can be. Grew visibly frustrated with his team-mates' inability to make some inroads.
Reckoned to be the quickest player in Italy but the problem was his electric pace was almost solely used for running back to his goal. Substituted with 27 minutes to go.
So often the scourge of English clubs, his movement and pace were a constant threat before he teed himself up for a splendidly struck seventh goal in four Champions League games this season.
Gave possession away too easily and unable to offer enough of a threat on the left flank. Substituted with 20 minutes to go.
- 37 S. Pletikosa
- 19 S. Bassong
Made some surging runs from midfield and covered the midfield ground with total commitment.
Helped shore up the midfield in the last five minutes.
- 21 N. Kranjčar
Tucked his goal away with aplomb following more stunning work from Bale and nearly added a fourth in the final seconds.
- 10 R. Keane
