Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

I THOUGHT we played with good spirit at Old Trafford and it was unfortunate that the two late goals made it a bad result for us.

We made the changes that open the game out and they benefited twice in the last couple of minutes from it, albeit good strikes. That put a slightly false impression on the scoreline.

I felt we always had a chance. We had our fair share of possession for the away team but we had to force a goal to make them really nervous.

I thought it was quite even although they looked more dangerous around the box and in the final third.

In going for the draw, we opened the game out and it gave them the opportunity to hit a couple of crackers.

I'm not sure if they're back to their best regarding Manchester but I'm quite sure they've enough talent in their ranks to be amongst the best, no doubt about that, but they've had a blip.

It was a difficult day for the players, a swirling wind and very nasty conditions. Keane and Giggs were big players for them. They've still got the players - they might had a few indifferent results, but they've still got some good players.
