The dropped points means that Manchester United can go three points clear at the top of the Premier League with victory over Fulham on Monday night; despite this the England international is remaining upbeat.
“We are disappointed because we wanted to win the game but we have got to look at the big picture now and concentrate on the next eight games,” he told The Daily Mail.
“We were a bit deflated in the dressing room but we have gone a goal down here, which is a really tough place to come, and come back to get a point which keeps us in touching distance.
“It is important now we keep it to no more than the three points for when we do play Manchester United.
“We can’t be relying on other teams – we have got to try to win all our games from now until the end of the season.
“That is our target. It is going to be really tough but while it is in our hands it is still possible. We are confident we can do that,” he concluded.
