Jose Mourinho stung by sore point after Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Everton

By Jim Gracey

Increasingly tetchy Jose Mourinho blew another gasket at Goodison Park yesterday as his Manchester United side blew yet more league points in a 1-1 draw with Everton.

United, having taken the lead through Zlatan Ibrahimovic's finessed first-half finish, should have had the game sewn up by the time late sub Marouane Fellaini conceded an 87th minute penalty against his old club, which Leighton Baines converted.

That led to yet another bizarre Mourinho press conference where he:

*Refused to answer questions about Fellaini's role in conceding the penalty

*Insisted he did not see a horrendous foul by Marcos Rojo on Idrissa Gueye, which should have earned him a red card

*Refused to address questions about his team's inability to win games

*Labelled Everton a long ball team, and...

*Reacted to a query about his tax affairs by inviting a journalist down the corridor and into one of Goodison Park's back rooms.
