CHELSEA

Petr Cech: Could do little about both of Tottenham's goals and looked pretty solid throughout. 6.

Cesar Azpilicueta: Did a superb job in keeping Gareth Bale quiet. 8.

Branislav Ivanovic: Guilty of backing off Emmanuel Adebayor to allow Spurs in. 6.

Gary Cahill: Helped the ball on to Oscar for Chelsea's opener. Was also guilty of backing off Adebayor, though. 6.

Ashley Cole: Quiet game for the England left-back. Was helped on the night by Aaron Lennon's lack of fitness. 6.

David Luiz: An inspired choice in central midfield. Kept Lewis Holtby relatively quiet and excelled going forward. 8.

Ramires: Timed run for second goal to perfection. Would have put game beyond Spurs if he had not lost his footing. 8.

Oscar: Showed great poaching ability to head Chelsea ahead and was a danger throughout. 8.

Eden Hazard: Superb display. Always busy. Made Scott Parker look very, very old. 8.

Juan Mata: Kept play flowing up top. Should have hit the target on a couple of occasions, though. 7.

Fernando Torres: Never much of a goal threat, but played the channels well and set up Ramires for his goal. 7.

Substitutes:

Victor Moses (on for Hazard 72 minutes): Did little to make an impact on the game. 6.

Yossi Benayoun (on for Oscar 83 minutes): Surprising introduction. Had no impact. 5.

TOTTENHAM

Hugo Lloris: Could do little about both Chelsea goals and commanded his area well. 6.

Kyle Walker: Got forward much more often. Should have tested Cech in the second half though when played in by Adebayor. 6

Benoit Assou-Ekotto: Another so-so performance. Looked good going forward, but was often careless in possession. 6.

Jan Vertonghen: Caught out of position for Chelsea's second. 5.

Michael Dawson: Unable to keep up with Ramires once he had given Vertonghen the slip. Led by example by taking a bruising shot from Hazard in the face, though. 7.

Tom Huddlestone: Awful. Too slow. Passing unusually awry. 4.

Scott Parker: Gave it his all, but tonight demonstrated why some think he is past it. Way off the pace for most of the game. 5.

Lewis Holtby: Provided his usual measure of energy in midfield. 7

Aaron Lennon: Tried his heart out, but clearly not at full fitness. 6.

Gareth Bale: Not his best night. Rarely featured and was booked late on for petty foul on Ramires. 5.

Emmanuel Adebayor: Best performance of the season by some margin. Always asked for the ball. Scored one of the goals of the season. 9.

Substitutes:

Gylfi Sigurdsson (on for Lennon 60 minutes): His introduction brought Tottenham back in to the game. Crucial late equaliser. 7.

Clint Dempsey (on for Holtby 70 minutes): Also helped turn the tide away from Chelsea. 6.
