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.

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.

One player who definitely is scoring goals for United is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and it was his stoppage time penalty that levelled the scores after Phil Jagielka had given the visitors the lead when he got on the end of a flick from Ashley Williams.

Ibrahimovic had a header ruled out for offside at the midway point of the second half, but got his moment later in the match when he equalised in the dying stages from 12 yards.

Manchester United suffered another blow to their hopes of finishing in the top four in the English Premier League when they were held 1-1 at home by Everton.

"We had to score the second goal because we had so much space but we didn't always take the right decisions".

"Probably I have one, two, three years so everything depends on what you want and what the club wants, what the vision of the club is because I said from day one I didn't come here to waste time". United, who have won the Community Shield and League Cup already this season, are desperate to qualify for next year's Champions League.

"We are doing everything to create chances and to take our chances", he said.

Daley Blind's curling shot was pushed out at full stretch by Robles, before Herrera smashed the follow-up against the bar from a tight angle.

"With the VAR (video assistant referee), we win this game 2-1 because it's not an offside", Mourinho told BT Sport.

"I'm 35", Ibrahimovic said.

Leicester earned a sixth straight win since Shakespeare replaced Claudio Ranieri in charge of the champions, thanks to second-half goals by strikers Islam Slimani and Jamie Vardy.

Everton fell to a 3-1 defeat in the Merseyside derby against Liverpool on Saturday but boss Koeman was satisfied with his side's response despite having to settle for a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Watford also appears to be in the safety of mid-table after a win sparked by captain Troy Deeney, who scored his 100th league goal for the club.

Burnley also eased the pressure on themselves, ending a seven-match streak without a victory as George Boyd got the victor just before the hour in a 1-0 triumph over Stoke City.
