Gomes (7) – Not much to do, did it all with no fuss.
Corluka (7) – Same as ever. Solid, skilful and enterprising. Picked out Modric’s runs well.
Assou-Ekotto (7) – Given the normal lack of help from Modric in front of him he got forward well. Should do better with his crossing sometimes.
King (7) – Made it through the ninety minutes!
Dawson (7) – Another reliable performance.
Lennon (8) – Made both goals, gave West Ham nightmares down his side.
Modric (7) – Didn’t look match fit but still played with inventiveness. Took goal well.
Palacios (7) – Another excellent exhibition of running and chasing. One beautiful ball out to Lennon in the first half.
Huddlestone (7) – Distributed well and was a presence in midfield all afternoon.
Defoe (7) – Struggled to find room until the later stages when the game stretched out. Made the most of it then with a thunderous shot for his goal.
Crouch(7) – Kept going until the end despite buffeting from back four and midfield.Â
