Rio Ferdinand insists that his Manchester United teammates are "not too down" following Sunday's 1-1 draw at Tottenham in the Premier League.

Rio Ferdinand has insisted that Manchester United are "not too down" following Sunday's 1-1 draw at Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

United thought that they had done enough for the win when Robin van Persie gave them a first-half lead, but Clint Dempsey struck in injury time to earn the hosts a share of the spoils.

"Before the game we would have taken a point," Ferdinand told BBC Sport. "We defended well as a team. You have to do that as you have to stand up and be counted and we did that today until the last 30 seconds.

"They are a team who are improving under a new manager, so we leave here not too down."

The draw has seen United's lead at the top of the table cut down to five points.
