Manchester United somehow managed to peg Everton back to secure a point, thanks to a stoppage-time Zlatan Ibrahimovic penalty.
But, the Red Devils were far from convincing, with the first-half being an especially dull affair. Fingers were raised as to Jose Mourinho’s preference to play Herrera, Carrick and Fellaini despite United in need of attacking ammunition, with the club failing to score goals.

Manchester United fans were especially critical of their manager, even more than the team as their side struggled to another draw at home.
In one breath Mourinho says he doesn’t want to talk about individuals (re Ibra) the next he says he’s not happy with Mkhitaryan :/

Mourinho using the most expensive player in the world as a glorified Coquelin protecting the back four. Parody stuff.

MUFC’s home form this season. Looks like Woodward has told Mourinho to spell his name out in results. Twice

So the ‘best fans he has ever had’ according to Jose Mourinho are now booing him off only after just 10 months #MANEVE

Can’t wait for Mourinho to “protect” players who didn’t perform… But when it’s Mkhitaryan or Martial then hang em to dry

Mourinho seriously needs to work on a gameplan, doesn’t even look like he has one. Relying too much on individual qualities.

I dare someone to name me a run of 3 games under mourinho where we’ve played good football and scored goals. I’ll wait. #MUFC

@RedDevilTimes I want the real Jose “The Special One” Mourinho back!!! The guy in United’s dugout is a cheap imitation.

So glad that Mourinho took care of Rashford’s progression.
Looked dangerous for a brief moment of time in his short career.

However, there were a choice few who still backed their manager, urging fellow supporters to be patient with the Portuguese.
Took Fergie years to clear out the shit&end end up with his own team,same applies 4 Mourinho, U can’t make a decent omelette with shit eggs

You cried like babies for Mourinho and now some of you want him out after 8 months. It’s embarrassing. Let the man build his team. FFS.

Man Utd: a thread. You don’t really need to cherrypick statistics that validate a preordained conclusion to see Mourinho’s improved them.

Only a fool would hear/read specifics of Mourinho’s comments regarding Shaw last night, and think Mourinho’s out of touch. He’s 21, not 18.
