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."
