Jose Mourinho: "We were the best team by far"

User Rating: / 0

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was a disappointed man once again as he saw his Red Devils' held to a 1-1 draw by Everton at Goodison Park as a late penalty converted by Leighton Baines earned the home side a point on Sunday afternoon.

Mourinho, who has had to endure more than his fair share of draws since taking over the hot seat at Manchester United, said after the game, "We were the best team by far, but we didn't win. We had chances for a 2-0 and had the ball against the post and then we conceded a goal in the last minute. I notice my team trying always to play the 90 minutes in the same way, but that is not always possible because your opponent tries to react, which they did a little bit in the last 10 or 15 minutes.


"I am concerned because we don't get results we deserve. When my team is playing well the results are important. I am pleased my team is playing well. It is a problem that our position in the table is not a reflection of our performances," he added.

Jose was also quizzed about his decision to send on Marouane Fellaini, who came on in the 85th minute and shortly after conceded a penalty. It was not a question that Mourinho was happy to answer, saying, "I thought you would know more about football than you do... When you have on the bench a player with two metres [in height] you play the player in front of the defensive line to help the team to win the match."

United sit in 6th place in the Premier League standings, 13 points behind leaders Chelsea. The Red Devils are away to Zorya Luhansk on Thursday as they return to Europa League action.
