Late Ibrahimovic penalty earns draw for Man Utd against Everton

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said a video assistant referee would have given his side a win on Tuesday after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a goal ruled out for offside. The pragmatism is - how many goals have (Marcus) Rashford, (Jesse) Lingard, (Henrikh) Mkhitaryan, Herrera, Pogba scored?

"The performance was not very good", Mourinho said. "We got one point, maybe we deserved three, but a point is not bad". United are well behind the best, and they don't have time to educate people with potential, they need more determined players right away. I still am. We had seven from 18 players aged 22 or under today.

Jose Mourinho's side is four points behind fourth-place Manchester City with nine games left and has a busy schedule, especially in April, as it is involved in the Europa League.

"I was telling him just now that he was doing things in the second half because he was reacting to my voice".

"I'd be looking at that situation thinking that on Saturday (Mourinho) played Ashley Young at left-back, that he has been playing Matteo Darmian at left-back, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind".

"You know I think he has lots of potential but the football brain and the professional brain also has to be with the talent", Mourinho told BT Sport after the game. "The performance from a football point of view was not good, but I am very pleased with the effort". We are 20 matches unbeaten in the Premier League which is not enough because we don't win enough matches.

"He must understand the game, he must think".

"At this level we need 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".

The 34-year-old Everton captain was certainly unfortunate not to finish the game a victor having been excellent over the duration, defending superbly as well as popping up with a clever finish to register his first goal since May 2015.

"They kept going and kept going and obviously gave us that goal to give us the point".

"I feel myself more comfortable here than [with] the way Liverpool tried to press", Koeman said. "If they are, they will make a difference".

Shaw has endured a tough time at Old Trafford since that injury but is to be given at least one more chance to prove himself to Mourinho.
