Ronald Koeman: What I really think about Everton's draw at Manchester United

Ronald Koeman: What I really think about Everton's draw at Manchester United”

"When the confidence levels are not high the quality of the performance is not easy to improve so we had to go through a short cut".

"I could feel some of the boys in trouble with the confidence levels". The team is what it is and we have done I think a great season and we have won two out of five trophies and have two more to play for. Did we have chances? Yes. Did the opponent's goalkeeper play very well as always? Yes.

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, I came here to win.

The home side were shocked as Everton then took the lead in the 22nd minute, seconds after David de Gea had blocked Kevin Mirallas's near-post shot from a Gareth Barry chip-through.

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.

But after Jagielka's defensive partner Ashley Williams was dismissed for handling Luke Shaw's drive deep in injury time, Zlatan Ibrahimovic stepped up to convert the penalty and ensure the points were shared.

On left back Luke Shaw, Mourinho said:"I think he has to change his football brain. We have chances and we need to score goals".

"We had to do it by the attitude point of view". We tried everything and in the end the goal arrived.

And then there was President Donald Trump, who called Erdoğan to congratulate him on the win. Turkey should "consider the next steps very carefully", an European Union spokesman said .

"I go with mathematics", Mourinho said.

The 35-year-old's future at Old Trafford had been uncertain, particularly during the opening weeks of the season when he struggled to break into Mourinho's team, not starting a Premier League game until November.

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

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.

"I was really confident in our defending, but (we needed to be) a little bit more clever maybe in the final pass because we got a lot of space".

Substitute Islam Slimani opened the scoring with a 69th-minute header before the revitalised Jamie Vardy smashed in his sixth goal in seven games from Marc Albrighton's pass.
