Vito Mannone - 5
Both goals seemed to go through him a little for me. You can't be too critical as both were from close range, but both perfectly savable.
Ondrej Celustka - 5
Mixed bag. Involved in the Sunderland goal and then fell asleep to allow Spurs to equalise almost immediately.
John O'Shea - 5
Own goal, and one of a number who really struggled to cope with Spurs' pace and power.
Wes Brown - 6
Best of a poor backline, but not by all that much.
Phil Bardsley - 5
Another slow reactor for the Spurs equaliser. A little wasteful in attack, a little pedestrian in defence.
Adam Johnson - 6
Typically inconsistent. Scored a lovely goal but was culpable for the Tottenham winner.
Ki Sung-Yeung - 6
Only midfield player with any real quality, but not one of his more influential games.
Jack Colback - 4
Very poor again from Colback. Got caught on the ball a little too much and offered little in terms of invention.
Seb Larsson - 4
See Jack Colback really. The midfield was very much where this one was lost.
Steven Fletcher - 4
Looking badly out of sorts and struggling for... well something.
Jozy Altidore - 5
Always looked like he might do something, without actually doing anything.
Lee Cattermole - 6
Added the required second half bite to the powder-puff midfield. Poyet needs to get him back into the starting line-up really.
Fabio Borini - 6
Offered a lot of movement and a semblance of threat from the bench. Missed the big chance to equalise, though.
Emanuele Giaccherini - 6
Nice little cameo with some flashes of quality. Always feel there is more to come from the Italian.
Man Of The Match: Take Your Pick, Really
No one really stood out at all for me. I won't waste anyone's time shoehorning someone in here just for the sake of it. Knock yourselves out!
