Ryan Mason hail his players for showing character and personality against Manchester United to get a point.

Tottenham interim manager Ryan Mason was pleased with his side after they came back against Manchester United in the Premier League last night.

Manchester United took the the lead in the first half with Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford’s goal but showed fighting spirit in the second half of the game.

Speaking to the media after the match Mason said:

“Big character, big personality, stuck together, kept believing, acted as a team throughout the whole game.

“That pleases me after what happened at the weekend because we probably didn’t have that as a group.

“Off the back of how the first half went, in terms of the scoreline, to go out and stick together, fight for each other and really get the fans involved – and I felt like they helped us massively – is pleasing.

“It proves a lot to me that I already thought about this group but to see it on the pitch is a good feeling.

“We created many chances in the second half, in the first half as well. Maybe if we were a bit more clinical, the flow of the game would have been different.

“But in the second half we kept pushing, we had some really clear openings. Maybe if we had got the second goal earlier, we could have kept pushing.

“I felt like, once we scored the second, the lads had invested so much energy that we went a little bit flat. But to come off 2-2 after being 2-0 down at half-time is a positive.

“You have to stick together in every moment. If you want to be a team, regardless of what’s happening on the pitch, you have to stick together and fight for each other and that’s what we did.”
