Manchester United 1-1 Everton- Game Recap

"But the spirt was good and the pride was there and the Manchester United way of fight was there".

Ronald Koeman was proud of his Everton side but admitted it was "really painful" to concede a late equaliser to Manchester United on Tuesday.

"We have to do more", he said.

"We just can't find a way to find that first goal and to break teams down and make it easier for us", added Carrick.

While this season is still far from a total failure (especially with the Europa League still to play for), the lack of goals should be a worry and has more in common with the Louis van Gaal era than many (Mourinho being at the front of that queue) would like to admit.

Ibrahimovic now has 26 goals and nine assists in 41 appearances this season, proving that he's one of the most valuable players in Mourinho's squad.

Manager Jose Mourinho had to preside over another disjointed United display which ended with Ibrahimovic netting his 16th league goal of the season on his return from suspension to take their unbeaten run to 20 league matches.

Mourinho brought on Paul Pogba for Blind at the start of the second half in an attempt to bring United back into the game, with Ashley Young switching to left-back and Herrera moving to the right.

We need his fantastic physical and technical qualities but he can not play with my brain.

"We need to keep focus, we can not afford these mistakes, especially now in the end [of the season] because it's very important points especially when the table is like it is".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has criticised Marouane Fellaini's mistake in Everton's opening goal.

It was a hard game, we controlled it well at 1-0 up, we had chances on the counter in the second half but not always was the last ball a good one. The gameplan worked and we knew we would have to soak up some pressure. "The team played well, so we'll enjoy this night and we'll wait until tomorrow to see who we'll meet in the final".

"We are obviously giving ourselves the tougher task but we are not giving up. Leicester have found some form but we need to get back to winning ways".

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

Then Ibrahimovic was controversially ruled offside when he headed in Herrera's 71st-minute cross before Everton, playing much better than in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at rivals Liverpool, were denied victory at the end. United at times looked kind of weak, at others looked great, and wound up settling for a draw in a match they could've won. They have a different system. "They are still a really strong team". "But you get more time and you have more ball possession".
