HUGO LLORIS: Pulled off a couple of crucial saves and could do nothing about Samir Nasri's goal - 7/10.
KYLE WALKER: Looked more confident going forward than usual - 7.
MICHAEL DAWSON: Booked for a bad tackle on Edin Dzeko and struggled to contain Carlos Tevez - 6.
JAN VERTONGHEN: Put his body on the line with a crucial tackle on Tevez in the second half - 7.
BENOIT ASSOU-EKOTTO: Could have seen red for a bad tackle on Pablo Zabaleta and was poor for most of the game - 5.
MOUSA DEMBELE: Put in a couple of good tackles and dribbled well - 7.
SCOTT PARKER: Had little impact on the game. Largely disappointing - 6.
CLINT DEMPSEY: Wasted good chances, but scored the goal which sparked the revival - 8.
GYLFI SIGURDSSON: Not his best game for Spurs. Can have little complaint at being substituted - 5.
GARETH BALE: Quiet for most of the game, but sparked into life towards the end. Nice finish to kill the game off and great ball for Dempsey's goal - 8.
EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR: Worked hard, but overall quality was poor - 5.
LEWIS HOLTBY (on for Sigurdsson, 60 minutes): One of his best games for Spurs. Added creativity and supplied Defoe for the second goal - 8.
TOM HUDDLESTONE (on for Parker, 60 minutes): Another who helped change the game. Calm on the ball and creative - 8.
JERMAIN DEFOE (on for Adebayor, 70 minutes): Fantastic finish to make it 2-1. Gave Spurs what they have been missing - 8.
JOE HART: Could do little about all three goals - 6.
PABLO ZABALETA: Kept Assou-Ekotto and Bale quiet for most of the game - 6.
VINCENT KOMPANY: Wilted towards the end to allow Spurs back in the game - 5.
MATIJA NASTASIC: Inexperience showed towards the end as City collapsed - 5.
GAEL CLICHY: Dominated the flank for much of the first half thanks to Spurs' lack of width - 6.
YAYA TOURE: Booked for kicking the ball away. Was robbed by Dembele on several occasions - 5.
GARETH BARRY: Authoritative on the ball. Getting better with every game - 7.
JAMES MILNER: Good pull back to Nasri for the City goal. Went off at half-time, presumably through injury, 7.
SAMIR NASRI: Six goals in nine games now for the former Arsenal man. Nasty tackle on Walker that went unpunished - 7.
CARLOS TEVEZ: Great industry to set up Nasri via Milner for the goal - 7.
EDIN DZEKO: Played nothing like he did here last season, when he scored four times - 5.
ALEKSANDAR KOLAROV (on for Milner, 45 minutes): Went close with a curling free-kick. Poor otherwise. 5.
SCOTT SINCLAIR (on for Dzeko, 83 minutes): Could not change the game - 5.
JOLEON LESCOTT (on for Clichy, 90 minutes): No time to make an impact. 5.
