Mourinho: We are not getting the results our performances deserve

The Manchester United boss says their position in the table bears no relation to the quality of football they are playing this season following their 1-1 draw at Everton

Jose Mourinho believes Manchester United are not getting the results their performances deserve after his side were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton at Goodison Park.

Mourinho's misery continues: Grenade sub Fellaini blows up in Man Utd's face

Zlatan Ibrahimovic gave United the lead with his sixth goal in his last five matches three minutes before half-time but Leighton Baines scored an 89th minute equaliser from the spot after substitute Marouane Fellaini had conceded a costly penalty against his former club.

United have now conceded more goals in the last 10 minutes than any other team in the Premier League and their third draw in a row leaves them in sixth place in the table, a position Mourinho feels doesn't match the football his team has played.

"We were the best team by far but we didn’t win. We had chances for the 2-0, we had the ball in the post and then we conceded a goal in the last minute," he told Sky Sports after the game.

"I’m happy my team is playing really well, even in difficult matches like this one today and it’s a problem for us that we are not getting what we deserve and it’s a problem for us that we have a position in the table that has no relation with the quality of the football we are showing."

The Portuguese also believes that unlike other teams, too much attention is being paid to United's results and not their good performances.

"I know that when my teams win matches playing a different style of football, then in that moment what matters is the style of football, not the results,"

"You have in this moment teams in the Premier League playing defensive and counter-attack football but getting results this season. That is ‘phenomenal’ in your words. When my teams play extremely well, the results are more important."

"If you tell me that in any one of our draws the opponent was closer to winning than us, I say that is completely untrue. But again I repeat, this season what matters is the results, it is not the quality of football."
