8 Bradley Johnson: Recalled and showed the hunger and desire you would expect.
8 Jonny Howson: Attacking threat against Everton. Defensive lynchpin here. Dominated Luka Modric.

• Tottenham Hotspur
6 Brad Friedel: Little chance with either Norwich goal. Looked shaky at times under crosses.
6 Kyle Walker: Glimpses of his attacking threat but hands full with Anthony Pilkington.
5 Younes Kaboul: Started well but afternoon was ended abruptly through injury.
6 Ledley King: Unsettled by Grant Holt on numerous occasions. Looked leggy in the second period.
6 Benoit Assou-Ekotto: Both City goals came down his flank. Average.
6 Aaron Lennon: Tried to carry the fight but wellmarshalled by Adam Drury.
6 Luka Modric: Dominated by Mr Howson and Mr Johnson. Much better than this display suggests.
6 Jake Livermore: Inexperience showed at times. Never able to get into the game.
7 Gareth Bale: Touches of undoubted quality but a frustrating afternoon for the Welshman.
5 Louis Saha: Ineffective in the first half. Little surprise he never re-appeared.
7 Jermaine Defoe: Trademark quality finish for Spurs' equaliser. Admirable work rate.
Subs: Ryan Nelsen (for Kaboul) 6, Emmanuel Adebayor (for Saha) 6, Rafael van der Vaart (for Livermore) 5
