“As soon as I got off the pitch and got in the changing room I thought back to how many times we've done that to other teams and you've got to accept it every now and again, especially if you don't lose the game. It's a difficult place to come and you just have to dust yourselves down and say, 'okay, we'll take that point’.”
United remain in a commanding position in the league table and a point at White Hart Lane may yet prove to be a valuable one considering the quality of Andre Villas-Boas’ side.
“We're in a good position but nothing is won yet and no medals are given out now,” Rio added. “You've just got to keep chalking off the games and picking up as many points as you can.
"You want to get the difficult games out of the way and this is one of them. I think a lot of teams will drop points here.”
