Rankings in the press today suggest that this is a close decision between Gareth Bale and Emmanuel Adebayor. The Togolese ultimately scored the two goals that won the game but Bale was behind much of Spurs best play and earned the praise of his manager after the match.
“He’s just an amazing talent. He’s an amazing player,” Harry told Sky Sports.
“He’s got the ability to run all day, to beat people, to dribble, to shoot, to head it – he can do everything. He’s a unique player really, he’s a special talent.”
Other suggestions included Younes Kaboul who was largely solid in defence and Rafael van der Vaart who scored the first and set up the second.
So is it a straight fight between Bale and Ade or is someone else more deserving of the Man of the Match accolade?
