Brad Friedel - 6
Had very little to do with the Liverpool attack tamed.
Kyle Walker - 6
Had little to do with Henderson tucking in towards the middle, Walker had the license to bomb forward. Surprisingly fast for such a big guy, the youngster's runs forward looked impressive but his decision-making was not.
Younes Kaboul - 7
Hardly called upon but cut off the final ball to Suarez and Carroll with enthusiasm.
Ledley King (Off 83') - 7
Responded well when called upon, King showed no signs of his chronic injury. Kept Carroll quiet in the aerial battle.
Benoit Assou-Ekotto - 7
Hardworking when going forward to assist Bale and even more hardworking when rushing back to cover.
Gareth Bale - 8
His speed and guile was a problem for Liverpool. His bombing runs curbed Henderson's attacking instincts and his crosses were always a threat.
Luka Modric - 9
What a screamer to open the scoring. Displayed his extraordinary passing skills with his flick-ons for Bale and brough his ball-winning ability in as well.
Scott Parker - 9.5
Combative in the midfield, Parker came out tops against Adam, causing the Liverpool midfielder to be sent off with two challenges on him. Always there to let his teammates find him on the attack, Parker's simple, direct passing was the perfect foil for Modric's creative through-balls. The heart of Tottenham's game today with his dictating of the play.
Niko Kranjcar (Off 45') - 7
Managed to test Jose Enrique enough to keep the Spaniard from going forward in attack and provided a few intelligent through passes for Adebayor.
Emmanuel Adebayor - 10
His first touch was exquisite throughout the match. It's as if his boots were imbued with some kind of magical glue. Two goals on his home debut, excellent game where he was excellent going back and winning the ball in midfield too. Take a bow, son.
Jermaine Defoe ( Off 83') - 8.5
His speedy and sneaky runs in between the defence and midfield causes many headaches
Rafael Van der Vaart (On 45') - 7.5
Came on to pile on the misery for the Liverpool back line. Linked up with the forwards well.
Sebastian Bassong (On 83') - N/A
Giovani Dos Santos (On 83') - N/A
Jose Reina - 3
Uncharacteristic error by Reina gifted Tottenham their third goal.
Martin Skrtel - 2
Couldn't deal with the guile of Modric and the energy of Bale. Made a few wrong decisions that led to Bale cutting behind him, one of which led to the early goal, another that saw him get booked, and the last one that saw him get sent off.
Jamie Carragher - 4
The only person who looked up to challenging Tottenham, but was let down by his fellow Reds.
Daniel Agger (Off 26') - 6.5
He was Liverpool's most impressive performer while on the pitch, keeping Defoe from getting shots away on goal. Unfortunate to go off due to a suspected rib injury.
Jose Enrique - 5
Managed to keep Krancjar and Van der Vaart from making a bigger impact on the game. Kept his flank well, though the same cannot be said of his opposite counterpart.
Lucas Leiva - 3
His failure to impose himself throughout the game, Lucas' passing was abysmal.
Charlie Adam - 1
Outclassed by Parker, his two needless yellow cards for challenges on Parker saw his early departure from the game.
Jordan Henderson - 3.5
Tucked into the middle after Adam's sending off but his passing was woeful at best.
Stewart Downing (Off 70') - 4
Should have done better distributing the ball against the less experienced Kyle Walker but kept finding Parker instead.
Luis Suarez (Off 70') - 4.5
Cut a forlorn figure up front with the lack of passes to feed him. His frustration showed at the end of the first half when he ‘did a Rooney' and sarcastically applauded the referee, earning him a yellow card.
Andy Carroll - 1.5
Was he playing in this match?
Sebastian Coates (On 26') - 4
His inexperience showed when he left Defoe wide open for Spurs' second goal.
Craig Bellamy (On 70') - N/A
Jay Spearing (On 70') - N/A
