London: Manchester United’s manager Alex Ferguson says that his team was lucky to escape with a win at White Hart Lane on Sunday despite a dominant show from Tottenham.

"We certainly carried a lot of luck today. It was a great performance from Tottenham in the first half and maybe we got our tactics wrong," he was quoted as saying by United’s official website.

However he termed the win as a great result considering the form Tottenham Hotspur have been in at home and plus they have also kept pressure on leader Manchester City as well .

Tottenham are a very good team - you have to consider that. That was only their second defeat at home since the start of the season.’

"Their form at home has been absolutely fantastic so it was a massive result." he added.
