Most Read

8 Elliott Ward: Held Norwich's defence together when Spurs launched a late onslaught.

7 Adam Drury: Still going strong at the very death. Never second best against Aaron Lennon.

9 Elliott Bennett: A goal to dream about for his first Premier League strike. Brilliant also defensively.

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.

8 Anthony Pilkington: Goal, numerous delicious set peice deliveries. Back to his best.

7 Aaron Wilbraham: First Premier League start. Quality foil for the skipper.

7 Grant Holt: Harrassed Ledley King all day long. Denied a clear penalty shout.

Subs: Steve Morison (for Holt) 6, Andrew Surman (for Pilkington) 6, Simeon Jackson (for Wilbraham) 6

• 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
