Rio Ferdinand admits Manchester United got a taste of their own medicine at Tottenham on Sunday, but the defender insists the team should not be disheartened at coming away from White Hart Lane with a point.

United looked set to re-establish a seven-point lead over bitter rivals Manchester City after Robin van Persie put them on course for victory, but Clint Dempsey snatched a point for Spurs with a 93rd-minute equaliser.

"It is disappointing," Ferdinand said. "But as soon as you get off the pitch and into the changing room you think back to how many times we have done that to other teams over the years and you have to accept it and take it on the chin."
