Tottenham Hotspur goal-keeper Hugo Lloris inspired his team to a feisty 0-0 draw with -Manchester United in the Premier League's early game on Sunday.
Spurs survived a wave of -early pressure and threatened to end United's eight-match unbeaten run in the closing stages as tempers flared at White Hart Lane.
"They had a great first half but we stayed in the game because we were strong defensively Josh Jones Limited Jersey ," Man of the Match Lloris told BT Sport. "The spirit was great."
United, who had won seven of their last eight games, stayed third in the table, nine points behind leaders Chelsea, and Tottenham remained sixth.
"We lost two points," United manager Louis van Gaal said. "We had the best performance of the season in the first half and could have scored four or five goals.
"We were fantastic. But when you don't score goals you cannot win. The second half was a struggle."
Had the Red Devils claimed three points, they would have increased the pressure on top two Chelsea and Manchester City.
Instead they were left to reflect on a missed opportunity, but Spurs, who finished the game strongly, also had cause for regret after failing to enhance their own challenge for a top-four finish.
Van Gaal's decision to name an unchanged side for the first time since he took charge was a clear indication of the manager's growing satisfaction with his team's -efforts after some good recent results.
Results, however, have told only part of the story, with -United having failed to convince on occasion.
Lloris made a fine diving save to tip over Ashley Young's fierce curling shot and Phil Jones had a close-range effort correctly ruled out for offside.
The influential Juan Mata's deflected free kick also crashed against the post and Robin van Persie should have scored after running on to a sublime pass from Michael Carrick but Lloris blocked his tame shot.
With Antonio Valancia and Young finding space on the flanks and Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney buzzing around in midfield, United repeatedly opened up a route to Lloris' goal, but neither Rademal -Falcao nor Robin van Persie could find a finishing touch.
Falcao saw an angled shot parried by Lloris, moments before the Spurs goalkeeper snuffed out an opportunity for Van Persie after the striker had deftly brought down Carrick's chipped pass.

NEW DELHI, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- Police in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand Saturday said they have arrested 16 people in connection with the recent gangrape of a tribal girl.
"Some 16 youths have been arrested in the case. Seven of them gangraped the girl while the remaining were present at the crime spot," a senior police official said.
The incident took place Wednesday night when the girl and her boyfriend was travelling on a bike and sexually assaulted by a group of men in Dumka, 300 km from state capital Ranchi.
The youths forcibly took away her mobile phone and demanded money from the couple. When they refused, the accused took them to a desolate place and raped them, while other men also joined.
"The girl has been admitted to Dumka Sadar hospital and her condition is reportedly stable and out of danger," Dumka's police chief Mayur Patel Kanhiya Lal told the media.
Sexual assaults on women are common in India, despite the government toughening laws against such crimes after the 2012 fatal and brutal gangrape of a medical student on a bus in Delhi.
