I like to do player ratings after massive results like these.
Friedel - 5. Can't comment on his performance cause he didn't do much the whole game. Good job staying awake throughout the game.
Walker - 6. Promising, fast and likes to go forward. But gives the ball away at times.
Kaboul - 6. Decent game, dealt with Carrol's physicality pretty well.
King - 7. Considering he doesn't even train with the team. Good game.
Ekotto - 7. Another consistent performance. Again not much threat after the sent offs.
Bale - 6. Shades of his Champions League form, however lacked power during crossing and shooting. A few bad misses, didn't even hit the target.
Modric - 9. Redknapp better start thinking of a replacement for this guy. Not a single mistake the whole game, every pass was perfect. Superb goal too.
Parker - 7. So much better than previous game. His usual breakup play style gives little for the defenders to do. But his passing has the creativity of a rock.
Kranjcar - 6. I'd rather use him as a super sub, rather than a regular. He should cross more and fall down less.
Defoe - 7. This guy only scores goals that are difficult. Easy goals he fluffs.
Adebayor - 9. Scores two. His hold up play is what Spurs are lacking last season. Crouch and Pavluchenko can never do what this guy does.
Van Der Vart - 6. A few good passes, but didn't really make a big difference. Needs to get back to full fitness.
