'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fergie: Keane Woke Us Up

Sir Alex is pleased with his team on the whole but pointed out the minor hitches.

United beat Spurs 3-1 in a very open, exciting cup-tie, thus getting through yet another Premiership opponent - it was the ninth time in a row we had top flight opponent in the cup.

'I think it was a fantastic cup tie and both sides contributed to that," Fergie said.

'It was quite an open match - we attacked and they also had some good chances. I think we also had great opportunities to create chances, although the final ball wasn't so good at times today.

'I think Robbie Keane's goal woke us up a bit. We were looking a bit slack at the time - we were too relaxed and there was no intensity in our game.

'But we controlled most of the possession and put a lot hard work in - we had to against what was a good Tottenham side.

'I'm very happy. We were playing a top-flight team and, remember, they came bouncing into the game today on the back of a fantastic result against Arsenal.'
