Mourinho: We are playing extremely well

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes they are playing well despite failing to win their third Premier League game in a row against Everton on Sunday.

The Red Devils looked set to claim all three points after Zlatan Ibrahimovic put them ahead in the 42nd minute, but an 89th minute Leighton Baines  penalty resigned them to their third straight 1-1 draw in the league.

On top of the most recent disappointment, United have won just one of their last eight league games and suffered an embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Chelsea in that time, but Mourinho isn't ready to hit the panic button yet.

"We were the best team by far, but we didn't win. We had chances for 2-0, we hit the bar, then we conceded a goal in the last minute," he told Sky Sports after the match.

"We are playing extremely well, even in difficult matches like this, and not getting the results we deserve."

He also took a swipe at the media for always finding something to criticise the club about.

"When my teams win matches playing a different style of football then what matters is the style of football, not the results," he added.

"You have teams in the Premier League playing defensive and counter attack football and getting results. That is phenomenal in your words. When my teams are playing extremely well the results are more important.

"I am happy my team is playing really well even in difficult matches. It is a problem we are not getting what we deserve and we have a position in the table that has no relation to the quality we are showing."
