Late Ibrahimovic penalty salvages United 1-1 draw vs Everton

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has angrily hit out at his players after their 1-1 Premier League draw against Everton on April 4, 2017.

BBC added that the Swede's 94th-minute penalty was awarded after Luke Shaw's goal-bound shot was handled on the line by visiting defender Ashley Williams, who was given a red card. Jose Mourinho's side, whose form has been so underwhelming recently at their "Theatre of Dreams", were facing the end of their 19-match unbeaten streak in the league as luck had earlier deserted them.

From the resulting corner Williams glanced on and Jagielka, back to goal and under pressure from Marcos Rojo, somehow hooked the ball through the goalkeeper's legs.

Mourinho said Shaw had produced a "very positive performance", but also claimed he had been "making every decision" for the left-back.

United's top four hopes were dealt another blow last night as they snatched a late 1-1 draw at home to Everton, which came just days after a 0-0 draw against West Brom at Old Trafford. Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored from the penalty spot to take the final score to 1-1.

Manchester United continued their unbeaten run by drawing against Everton in the Premier League.


"Probably I have one, two, three years so everything depends on what you want and what the club wants", he told MUTV, as per the Daily Mail. It's not good enough for a club with Champions League aspirations and in terms of points amassed this season, Mourinho is trailing the number accumulated by Louis van Gaal in his first season at Old Trafford.

"One decision went against us and the opponent was ultra-defensive as always, but we didn't play very well".

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. But I can not say, the TV has to judge.

Leicester's sixth straight win in all competitions under Shakespeare with second-half goals from Islam Slimani and Jamie Vardy completed a miserable day for Sunderland boss David Moyes.

"With that said, I think we showed great team spirit to put in a performance like that after Saturday (3-1 Merseyside derby defeat at Liverpool)".

Burnley moved up to 11th place, and eight points above the relegation zone, thanks to George Boyd's 58th-minute goal at Turf Moor.
