The Spurs boss was complimentary of his team's first-half performance, singling out goalscorer Gareth Bale and debutante Lewis Holtby for praise.
"In the second half we really put on a show and put on a good performance. Pity, our first half cost us two points and we wanted to profit from the Arsenal v Liverpool game, but we did not have enough time to get a winner," BBC Sport quotes him as saying.
"The draw was a fair result. Gareth Bale had such pace and power. There was a tackle that could have broken his leg, but never mind.
"Lewis Holtby made a difference, it is a major coup for us and he gave us something in between the lines to connect our team."
Bale's second-half strike cancelled out Wes Hoolahan's opener, but the result leaves Spurs just one point ahead of Everton in fourth place in the Premier League.
