Wayne Rooney rescued a point for Manchester United as the Red Devils twice came from behind to secure a 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane.

The United striker scored his first strike in the 30th minute after Kyle Walker had broken the deadlock before the England international cancelled out Sandro long-range effort from the penalty spot with 33 minutes remaining.

Here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals past and present, in chronological order, after events in north London.

Former Middlesbrough midfielder Gaizka Mendieta (‏@GaizkaMendieta6) can’t pick fault with David De Gea for Sandro’s strike: “What a hit from Sandro!!! Nothing De Gea could have done! Brilliant game! 2-1 #TOTMUN”

Red Devils legend Peter Schmeichel (‏@Pschmeichel1) feels for Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris: “Never a pen, but what a great tackle by Vidic that led to it!!”

Mendieta ‏(@GaizkaMendieta6) agrees: “Welbeck leaves his leg looking for the contact with Lloris hands! No penalty… #Dive #TOTMUN”

Ex-United defender Viv Anderson ‏(@Anderson_Viv) never doubted Rooney would level from the spot: “Wayne was never going to miss that #biggameplayer #mufc @ManUtd”

Former Spurs winger David Ginola (‏@DavidGinolaCeze) sees an improvement from last weekend’s performance: “Got a point. Much better better manner good attitude just need to carry on that way.”

Ex-Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin ‏(@DionDublinsDube) picks his men-of-the-match: “Rooney was outstanding for United and Dembele was brilliant for Spurs good game.”

United goalkeeper David De Gea ‏(@D_DeGea) thanks the Red Devils for their support: “Thanks for your messages, it’s an honour to achieve 100 games with this great team!”

Former Red Devils striker Michael Owen ‏(@themichaelowen) felt it was a fair result at White Hart Lane: “Great game at White Hart Lane. Draw probably a fair result though a point does neither team many favours.”

Tottenham midfielder Aaron Lennon ‏(@Aaron7Lennon) greedily wishes Spurs had claimed maximum points: “Not the result we wanted today, but a point was probably fair, good response by the boys today, great atmosphere as well. #COYS”

Finally, Spurs goal-scorer Sandro Raniere ‏(@sandroraniere) is clearly delighted with his striker: “Very happy that I scored today. Thanks all for the support.”
