Kyle Walker ran through the gamut of football emotions in an eventful afternoon for the Tottenham Hotspur right-back.

An engrossing afternoon's action at White Hart Lane saw Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United draw 2-2.

Kyle Walker gave Tottenham the lead in the 18th minute with a well-hit free-kick fired underneath the Man United wall. The visitors equalised 14 minutes later when a Phil Jones cross came off Walker's boot and into a gleeful Wayne Rooney's path.

Within ten minutes of the second half Spurs were ahead, this time thanks to Sandro. The midfielder fashioned himself an opening and blasted a shot into the top corner from 25 yards.

United demonstrated their resilience when they leveled just three minutes later. Danny Welbeck timed an angled run across the box and was brought down by Hugo Lloris, with Rooney converting the subsequent penalty.

Spurs have every right to be pleased with their response to last week's 6-0 thrashing by Manchester City, but must wonder what might have been after losing the lead twice. The Red Devils earned another respectable away point in their second Premier League 2-2 draw in a row. Even so, the nine-point gap between themselves and current table-toppers Arsenal will be cause the reigning champions concern.

Read on for some things we learned from Sunday's match.
