Tottenham Hotspur came all the way back from 3-0 down to earn an important draw at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Matej Vydra, Chris Brunt and Stephane Sessegnon opened the gap in the first half at The Hawthorns, but a Jonas Olsson own goal provided Spurs a life-line, and Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen finished the job in the second period.

Following are ratings and analysis for all the Tottenham players.

Half-Time analysis for Tottenham Hotspur

Lloris: Punched the ball straight at Vydra for the opener.

Naughton: Delivered the cross that Olsson accidentally turned into his own goal.

Chiriches: A walking disaster.

Kaboul: His mistake led to Sessegnon’s goal.

Rose: Went down far too easily to win the penalty.

Lennon: Conceded possession in the attacking third just moments before Sessegnon broke downfield and scored.

Paulinho: Has completed 94% of his passes so far.

Chadli: Distribution has been good, although neither Kane nor Adebayor have been well-serviced so far.

Eriksen: Has had a few bright moments, but his teammates’ woeful defending seems to have taken the wind out of his sails.

Adebayor: His abysmal penalty was stopped easily by Foster.

Kane: Flashed a shot just wide of goal shortly after Spurs went 2-0 down.

Eriksen: Took his goal extremely well, switching the ball to his right foot before drilling it into the top corner.

Adebayor: Will be ruing that penalty miss, but he held the ball up nicely throughout the match.
