Man United concedes late penalty, draws 1-1 at Everton

Man United concedes late penalty, draws 1-1 at Everton

"In every one of our draws we. deserved to win".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic put United ahead in the first half when he lobbed the onrushing Maarten Stekelenburg and saw his effort finally cross the line after deflecting off bar and post. But I am happy my team is playing really well.

But, despite the poor results, Mourinho thinks performances are so much better than United fans were getting under Louis van Gaal.

"When you have teams playing defensive, counter-attack football they get praise - that is phenomenal in your words".

United have won only two of their last 10 league matches and are adrift by league leaders Chelsea by a huge margin, thus leaving Mourinho to admit "the gap might be already too large". "I am talking about the way this team wants to play and that is the most hard thing in football to change", he added.

'We're losing too many points now and it needs sorting.




While the Toffees were equally belligerent and just as uninspiring, United came so close to securing a vital three points thanks to a weird goal from the enigmatic Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

But Everton received a lifeline with a minute remaining when Fellaini clumsily tripped Gueye in the area allowing Baines to beat De Gea from 12 yards as the home crowed breathed a sigh of relief. The United boss was also asked about the first-half incident where Marcos Rojo could have easily been shown a straight red card for a two footed lunge on Gueye, but again, refused to comment.

"We were the best team on the pitch by far and it is a result that doesn't reflect the difference of the performances of both teams".

Speaking about his old Goodison team'mate in his role as a pundit after the game, former Everton midfielder Leon Osman was nearly laughing when he revealed that "we used to want Fellaini as far from our goal as possible when we were defending because he was always liable to do something that like that". They certainly look more convincing than the same date three years ago, when a home defeat to Everton under David Moyes exposed the developing chaos under the Scot.

On his previous stints as the club manager, the Portuguese had managed to get off to a quick start and stamp his personality on the team early.
