First and foremost, a scoreless draw away from home isn't a complete disaster for Tottenham.
It might have been against the last-placed Queens Park Rangers, but still, considering what QPR did to Chelsea last week, the result isn't all bad news for Tottenham.
They weren't overrun through the middle; they weren't troubled too much in defense—this was still a good performance from Andre Villas-Boas' side considering their opponents played very deep in defense and gave them literally nothing to work with.
Whenever an opponent is simply parking the bus like Rangers did this weekend, to create the chances that they did and almost pull off the win was a good result for Tottenham. It might not have been what they were after and it won't have helped them in the race for the top four, but at least they didn't lose and at least they didn't concede.
The North London club are still in fourth and will still be fourth by the time they take on Manchester United at White Hart Lane next weekend. They are by no means out of the top-four race and they are by no means in a form slump at the moment.
Truth be told, they played very well this weekend other than getting the three points. Everything else was largely positive for Tottenham Hotspur.
