Harry Redknapp's amazing start as Spurs boss continued at a cost to United's title rivals Arsenal on Wednesday night.
The Gunners looked to have sewn up a see-saw match 4-2 until two last-gasp goals at the Emirates gave Redknapp's men a surprise point to add to their win over Bolton.
The North London draw was good news for United and also the leaders Liverpool and Chelsea, both of whom won to nil. Steven Gerrard's 76th-minute penalty was enough just - to beat Redknapp's former club Portsmouth at Anfield while Chelsea had a more comfortable night at Hull, winning 3-0 thanks to Lampard, Anelka and Malouda.
Aston Villa are fourth after beating Blackburn 3-2 at Villa Park and
