Sir Al­ex Fer­guson was not happy wi­th the res­ult, how­ever, and blamed as­sist­ant ref­er­ee Si­mon Beck for not award­ing Uni­ted a pen­alty when they were lead­ing by 1-0 in the sec­ond half.

Robin van Per­sie gave Man­chester Uni­ted the up­per hand on 25 min­utes, on­ly for Clint De­mp­sey to equal­ise for Spurs in stop­page time. Af­ter the 1-1 draw wi­th Tot­ten­ham, Sir Al­ex Fer­guson told the re­port­ers that The Reds had played bet­ter than The Li­ly­whites and that they had de­served to win the con­test. Sir Al­ex Fer­guson: “I tho­ught that we de­served a little bit more, but a draw we take it in the last min­ute. We tried to get the crowd be­hind us and go for the vic­tory, we were the best te­am and cre­ated more chances.” Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur Te­am: Hugo Llor­is, Kyle Walk­er, Mi­chael Dawson, Ste­ven Caulk­er, Kyle Naugh­ton, Scott Par­ker, Mousa Dem­bele, Aar­on Len­non, Clint De­mp­sey, Gar­eth Bale, Jer­main De­foe.
