Sir Alex Ferguson said he expects to see us climbing the Premier League after Saturday's goalless draw against his United side at the Lane.

United had the better of the possession but we created the better chances in the first half with Edwin Van der Sar saving well from David Bentley and Aaron Lennon.

The focus switched to the other goal in the second half as Heurelho Gomes produced superb late saves to deny Ji-Sung Park and Ryan Giggs. However, Van der Sar also had to keep out a Bentley free-kick and Luka Modric's effort skimmed the roof of the net.

"It is not a bad result," insisted the United boss. "We dominated the game for the most part and their goalkeeper has made two fantastic saves near the end.

"We just needed that bit of luck or a break close to goal but we didn't get it. You have to admire the intensity of our game.

"Tottenham have been on a high since Harry Redknapp came.

"There is a bit of life about the club. You expect to see them higher up the league and I am sure they will be.

"Overall, I am satisfied with the performance."
