Sir Alex Ferguson was complimentary of Spurs

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson hailed Tottenham after the Red Devils won 3-1 at White Hart Lane.

The Red Devils took the lead just before half-time thanks to a Wayne Rooney goal before Ashley Young bagged a brace before Jermain Defoe scored a consolation.

“It was a great performance by Tottenham in the first half,” Ferguson told Sky Sports.

“But we improved in the second-half.”

The Manchester United manager felt his side had a bit of luck to finish the game off.

“We had a bit of luck scoring the second. They’re a hard team to kill off Tottenham,” he added.

“The goalkeeper made a fantastic save in the second-half.”
