Late Ibrahimovic penalty earns draw for Man Utd against Everton

Late Ibrahimovic penalty earns draw for Man Utd against Everton

Europa League glory offers another route to the Champions League, but Carrick has not given up on securing a return to European football's top table through the league.

He eventually did level with a stoppage-time penalty, cancelling out Phil Jagielka's 22nd-minute opener, but Mourinho said United had been denied victory unjustly.

"We need at this level the fantastic body he has to play football, the fantastic physical qualities he has, the very good technical ability he has - but he can not play with my understanding of the game".

United enjoyed a lot of the ball in the early stages, but struggled to create clear-cut chances against a resolute Toffees defence.

"Did the opponent goalkeeper play very well as always? Yes".

Ibrahimovic also had a headed goal disallowed for offside in the second half.

Mourinho said: "I could feel some of the boys in trouble with the confidence levels".

United's Daley Blind had a free-kick clawed away on the half hour mark by Everton stopper Joel Robles, before midfielder Ander Herrera clipped the crossbar with a rebound effort from a narrow angle.

Mourinho's men were lacklustre for most of the game, but received a slice of luck deep into injury time when a shot from Luke Shaw was handled by Ashley Williams in the penalty area. Even not scoring the second, I was comfortable because, of course, we know we need to defend and we did a great job defensively.

He added: "We don't score enough goals, it is as simple as that".

"We had to do it from the attitude point of view".

"After pressure, after pressure, after pressure the goal finally arrived and at least you don't have the feeling of defeat".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho criticises Luke Shaw by claiming that he made "every decision" for the left-back during his performance against Everton.

"I'm 35", Ibrahimovic said.

"I am pleased by the performance but I did not expect a reaction from the derby because I was proud of the team".

Slimani had only been on the field for seven minutes when he nodded home a Marc Albrighton cross, before Vardy found the top corner 12 minutes from time.

With eight games remaining Sunderland have 20 points, eight behind Swansea City in 17th.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman was looking to become first manager to pick up wins in his first three trips to Old Trafford in the Premier League.
