Emmanuel Adebayor

Tottenham Hotspur

Hugo Lloris – 6

No chance for Rosicky goal but against provided an effective goal as sweeper. Save well from Mertesacker.

Kyle Naughton – 5

Still finding his feet at this level you feel and was constantly out of position against Podolski. Delivered poorly.

Younes Kaboul – 6

Despite not training in the weekend the Frenchman remains Tottenham's best defender. Marshalled Giroud very well.

Jan Vertonghen – 7

Distributed the ball well from the back but again made up a high Spurs line which often got caught. More content in second half.

Danny Rose – 6

Refrained from attacking at the fear of being exposed and therefore kept position well.

Nacer Chadli – 6

Missed Spurs' best chance when effort was blocked by Koscielny and adopting central role was consistently involved but had few ideas.

Sandro – 7

Helped keep Tottenham's midfield shape but was too often the source of a lack of invention.

Christian Eriksen – 6

Again deprived of a central role and drifted in and out of the game until replaced in the second half.

Nabil Bentaleb – 5

Has hit a plateau in form since coming into the Surs team and struggled to make an impact for long periods.

Andros Townsend – 4

Suffering a real downturn in form. Continually came inside and became increasingly predictable as a result.

Emmanuel Adebayor – 7

Was the focal points of the Tottenham attack throughout but was limited to just one chance as he headed wide.


Paulinho – 5, Sigurdsson – 6, Soldado - 5


Wojciech Szczesny – 8

Almost allowed spurs to level after dropping the ball twice but generally dealt with crosses well. Had few saves to make.

Bacary Sagna – 7

Another reminder as to the void he will leave at the end of the campaign with a solid showing.

Per Mertesacker – 8

Quickly becoming one of the most accomplished defenders in the Premier League and swarmed all over Adebayor.

Laurent Koscielny – 9

Secured the points with a crucial block on the line from Chadli and formed a solid partnership with Mertesacker.

Kieran Gibbs – 7

Formed part of a solid Arsenal back four and produced a disciplined performance. Rarely went forward.

Tomas Rosicky – 8

Scored a stunning opener after 72 seconds and was a constant source of danger with the ball at his feet.

Mikel Arteta - 7

Says plenty about his performance in the holding role that he was largely anonymous. Disrupted several Tottenham attacks.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 7

Another performance which showed his explosive pace and how crucial he is to the Arsenal cause. Missed a sitter to extend the lead.

Santi Cazorla – 6

Struggling for form as Arsenal's chief creative source but keeps them ticking over in the middle of the park.

Lukas Podolski – 6

Failed to produce much end product despite having a lot of the ball as Naughton switched off. Must improve goal threat.

Olivier Giroud - 6

The pivot of the Arsenal attack but lacked service and was often caught offside. Continues to look weary.


Flamini - 5, Monreal - 6, Vermaelen - 6
