"Without having a lot of chances in the game we still looked dangerous and I still felt we could score again, but the final pass just didn't quite fall for us. We were in a good position but we just couldn't quite see it out. It's disappointing after leading for so long, but we just have to move on and we can take a lot of positives from the game."
One such positive would be the play which led to the opening goal, scored yet again by Robin van Persie.
Ferdinand recalled: "The ball got worked out to Tom [Cleverley] who put in a great delivery and whatever Robin is touching at the moment seems to be going in. That was a great start for us.
"I don't think we can be too down about coming away from here with a point because Spurs are a confident team under new management and they've been doing well. We'll take that point."
