Jose Mourinho gave a guarded interview following Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Everton in the Premier League on Sunday.

Marouane Fellaini gave away a penalty only two minutes after emerging from the bench to gift the Toffees an equaliser following Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s lobbed opener.

It was a game full of controversy, Marcos Rojo somehow survived an early bath for a two-footed lunge on Idrissa Gueye while Ibrahimovic could face retrospective punishment after he caught Seamus Coleman on the head with his boot.

When asked about the decision to award Everton a late penalty, Mourinho told the BBC: “No thoughts. No comment.

“We were best team on the pitch by far and it is a result that doesn’t reflect the difference of the performances of both teams.”

When questioned on Marcos Rojo’s dangerous looking challenge in the first half, the Portuguese boss responded: “No comment.”

Overall, Mourinho was content with the performances of certain individuals and singled out Phil Jones and Rojo for special praise.

“We have to work the way we are doing,” the former Chelsea boss added. “There have been amazing performances from Jones and Rojo, players who have never played for the club for the past two years.

“To perform in five consecutive matches against difficult opposition, I am so happy with the individual performances.”
