For once, it was Tottenham’s turn to score in added Fergie time as Clint Dempsey’s late, late strike earned Spurs a point against Manchester United yesterday evening. Clint’s leveller came in the 93rd minute after his earlier effort was saved by David de Gea and it was just reward for a game that we dominated in terms of possession and shots on target.
After the match, Andre Villas-Boas echoed what all but the most biased United fan was thinking when he said that the draw was fully deserved.
“We deserved the draw – we deserved to win, to be fair,” said Andre on the club’s official website.
“We controlled the game, limited their chances and it was unfair for us to go 1-0 down in the first half.”
AVB also stated that the plan was to push for an early equaliser in the second period.
“Our strategy in the second half was to try and score as early as possible to get the crowd behind us and go for the second goal,” he added.
“We got the point we wanted in a difficult game and well done to the lads and their spirit to achieve a result like this.”
The point keeps us in fourth and after the break for the FA Cup, next up in the league is a trip to Norwich on the 30th of January.
