Carlos Tevez struck home in injury time to help Manchester United salvage a 1-1 away draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the Premiership on Saturday.

Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov put Spurs ahead midway through the first-half.

Jermaine Jenas' run was halted by Owen Hargreaves but Aaron Lennon gathered the ball and crossed from the byline.

Edwin van der Sar parried the ball into the path of Berbatov, who scored from the rebound to send the home fans into ecstasy.

Tottenham produced a spirited defensive display and harshly conceded a last-gasp strike from Argentinean striker Tevez.

The former West Ham man was picked out unmarked at the near post to divert a right-wing corner past Tottenham keeper Radek Cerny.

The draw put defending champions United in second place of the league table with 58 points, two behind leaders Arsenal, who defeated Manchester City 3-1 earlier on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Jermain Defoe scored on his Portsmouth debut to help them claim a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Fratton Park.

French striker Nicolas Anelka put Chelsea in front in the 55th minute but Defoe drew Pompey level ten minutes later.
