Gomes (8) â€“ Kept busy. Always composed and handled well. Excellent reflex save from Riga header in second half.
Assou-Ekotto (7) â€“ Possibly the most left-footed player to have ever played right back for Spurs. Did well given that.
Bale (9) â€“ A constant menace to the Bolton defence but also solid and decisive at the back. Outstanding again.
Bassong (7) â€“ Nice run and shot in first half. Sure footed and reliable.
Dawson (7) â€“ Continues his good record as skipper. Comfortable for most of the game.
Modric (6) â€“ Flitted in and out. Stayed out on the left mostly rather than coming inside as per usual. Caught in possession too often. Nice ball for Pav for first goal.
Huddlestone (7)Â – Some lovely long passes in the first half especially went to waste. Drifted out of the game for long spells when the potential was there to dominate it.
Palacios (7) â€“ As usual mixed some sublime running and tackling with some ridiculous passing. Missed him from the moment he went off, hopefully his knock isnâ€™t a serious one.
Bentley (6) â€“ Pretty anonymous. Worked hard but not much memorable to show for it.
Defoe (6) â€“ One good effort from edge of the area. Forced error from keeper for second goal.
Pavlyuchenko (8) â€“ Took his goals very well, the first one especially. He and Defoe work well together.
