Late Ibrahimovic penalty earns draw for Man Utd against Everton

Late Ibrahimovic penalty earns draw for Man Utd against Everton

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's penalty in injury time may have salvaged something from the midweek clash but United now sit four points behind Manchester City, having played the same amount of games, and five adrift of third-placed Liverpool with a match in hand.

After he was left out of United's squad over the weekend despite being fit and publicly criticised by Mourinho, it will have been particularly sweet for Luke Shaw to have come off the bench and play a key role in his team's late salvage act, the left-back's shot being handled by Ashley Williams to prompt referee Neil Swarbrick to point to the spot.

Everton, infinitely better in this game from their rather disappointing performance against Liverpool, had taken the lead in the first half through Phil Jagielka, but a win was snatched away from them at the last. His first goal of the season prompted an urgent response from United, with an Ander Herrera effort striking the bar, but even with Ibrahimovic back in the team, United were blunt.

United threatened again 10 minutes after the restart as substitute Paul Pogba flicked an instinctive header against the woodwork from Ashley Young's inswinging free-kick, which took a touch off Romelu Lukaku. Asked to explain the poor return, Mourinho admitted there was a problem with the "confidence levels" of his players.

The draw means that Man United's unbeaten record in the league now stretches to 20 games - though since embarking on that run they have moved up just one place n the table and are four points behind rivals Manchester City in fourth with just nine games remaining. But it didn't. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic converting a penalty in the 94th minute, the English giants managed to earn a draw against Everton at the Old Trafford in Manchester on Tuesday.

Manchester United dominated the opening stages of their Premier League match against Everton at Old Trafford on Tuesday, but went into the break trailing to one of the most freakish goals of the season.

"He had a good performance but it was his body with my brain, because he was in front of me and I was making every decision for him", Mourinho said of Shaw. United, who have won the Community Shield and League Cup already this season, are desperate to qualify for next year's Champions League. Last week, betting exchanges ranked their chances of doing either as identical. Did the keeper play well against us as always? Yes.

United nearly levelled from Daley Blind's free-kick but Joel Robles did well to keep it out and then watched on as Ander Herrera hit the bar from the rebound.

"Our defending was terrific", Koeman said.

We are 20 matches unbeaten in the Premier League which is not enough because we don't win enough matches.
