United needed a Michael Dawson own goal for a share of the spoils as the defender dived in at the near post with striker Carlos Tevez to meet Nani's corner in the very last action of the game. Dimitar Berbatov earlier put us 1-0 up in the 21st minute.
"It could be massive," the United boss told MUTV. "We don't stop trying. When we're 1-0 down we'll throw everything at a game, we've always done that. All things being equal, a point's a good point for us, bearing in mind we were 1-0 down at half-time.
"If we'd have got the goal earlier, we'd have won the match. I think in the last 25 minutes we've absolutely battered them. We've deserved a point, but just.
"In the first half I think Tottenham were the better side. They worked their socks off. Under Juande Ramos they're on the upswing, there's no question about that. It was a real difficult game for us. Maybe we've gained a point."
There was more praise from Sir Alex Ferguson after his side's late, late show to grab a point at the Lane.
