TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS 1 - UNITED 1

Barclays Premier League
White Hart Lane, 2 february 2008

TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS 1
Berbatov (20)

MANCHESTER UNITED 1
Tevez (90)


Carlos Tevez equaliser in the final minute of injury time as United came from behind to notch a 1 - 1 draw at Tottenham on Saturday afternoon.

The Argentinian Striker volleyed home Nanni's near post corner in the 93rd minute, cancelling out Dimitar Berbatov's first-half opener for the Londoners. 

The Bulgarian Striker converted from close range after 20 minutes, pouncing after Edwin van der Sar could only parry Aaron Lennon's cross into his path. 

The result leaves United two points behind league leaders Arsenal, but the evasion of the fourth league defeat of the season will be a massive boost for the Reds ahead of next weekend's Manchester derby.
