Tottenham 1-1 Manchester United: Rafael's Utd denied win by last gasp goal
Rafael da Silva's Manchester United were denied a win by a last gasp Clint Dempsey goal which earned Tottenham a point in the Premier League clash at White Hart Lane.
The Brazil full back curiously charged forward in anticipation of a counterattack as Tottenham regained the ball in the dying stages after a David de Gea clearance.
Rafael left Benit Assou-Ekotto on his own who then delivered a cross wide to Aaron Lennon who slid in Dempsey to turn into the bottom corner from six yards for the equaliser.
Robin van Persie's 18th goal of the season look set to give Manchester United the winner after he headed in Tom Cleverley's cross in the first half.
Manchester United's lead at the top of the table is now five points, with nearest rivals Manchester City securing a 2-0 win over Fulham on Saturday thanks to a David Silva brace.
