Norwich v Tottenham

Norwich City

John Ruddy – 7

Seldom called upon during the 90 minutes but did well to deny Adebayor and Chadli. Disruption was lacking but his World Cup hopes have been done no harm.

Russell Martin – 7

Defined the Norwich performance. Solid, hardworking and determined to disrupt Spurs. Probably the best player on the park.

Sebastian Bassong – 6

Fortunate to escape after gifting Adebayor possession but impressed against his former club.

Joseph Yobo – 6

Far more assured than the bumbling, nervous wreak he was at Everton. Notably omitted from build-up play but relished physical battle.

Martin Olsson – 7

Provided good width and thrust going forward, albeit lacking a final ball. Solid at the back against Lennon.

Alex Tettey – 7

You wonder where Norwich might be without him. Not blessed technically but put out numerous fires for City.

Bradley Johnson – 5

Lacked much creative influence bar setting up Snodgrass goal but central role means he was able to disrupt Tottenham's passing game. Tremendous free-kick almost made it two.

Robert Snodgrass – 6

His flair streak might have disappeared under Hughton's tactics but the Scot still possesses the quality for this level and took his goal well.

Leroy Fer – 6

Spearheaded a hard-working, industrious Norwich midfield. Attacking end product wavered from the rare to the non-existent.

Nathan Redmond – 6

At 19, you fear he is already responsible for sorting out Norwich's woes. A thorn in the side of Tottenham all afternoon and missed chance to make win comfortable.

Ricky van Wolfswinkel.- 3

A willing runner for Norwich but lacking complete confidence in front of goal. Needs a spell out of the team.

Substitutes: Gary Hooper - 5, Wes Hoolahan - 6

Tottenham Hotspur

Hugo Lloris – 6

The French captain became more assured as the game wore on from crosses but was helpless to deny Snodgrass.

Kyle Naughton – 3

Often outnumbered at full back with Olsson and Redmond threatening from the left. Horribly caught for the Snodgrass goal

Michael Dawson – 4

Even amid Van Wolfswinkel's limited movement, was often found wanting. Younes Kaboul's continued absence a worry.

Jan Vertonghen – 6

Looks much more assured in the centre of defence though distributed poorly after being the spare man at the back.

Danny Rose – 5

Unable to influence in the final third though he provided one of the few wide outlets. Still to convince defensively.

Etienne Capoue – 4

Replaced after 15 minutes through injury. Spurs career continues to be injury-plagued.

Nabil Bentaleb – 5

Anonymous figure throughout the 90 minutes. Talented, but limited against two banks of four.

Paulinho – 4

Still working his way back from injury and therefore looked well off the pace. Replaced by Soldado after an hour.

Aaron Lennon – 6

The Spurs player most likely to spark a breakthrough. Popped up on the left, the right and through the middle but became increasingly frustrated.

Emmanuel Adebayor – 4

After a good spell since returning to the fold Adebayor returned to his ineffectual best. Improved upon Soldado's introduction.

Moussa Dembele.-5

Continually involved in Tottenham attacks but lacks a killer pass or shot in his artillery.


Nacer Chadli – 6, Roberto Soldado – 6, Andros Townsend - 5
