Jose Mourinho gave an ill-tempered press conference after Manchester United suffered a late equaliser against Everton, dismissing the opposition as a long-ball side, claiming to have missed key moments in the game and citing double standards in the media.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's finessed first-half finish, a long-range lob over the advancing Maarten Stekelenburg, looked to have settled the points, but Leighton Baines made it 1-1 from the penalty spot after a last-gasp trip from Marouane Fellaini.

United, Mourinho and making a case for the defence

The majority of Jose Mourinho's first season in charge at Manchester United has been dominated by one major issue: his side does not score enough goals. It is hard to argue with the criticism, for while United have only failed to score in five Premier League games this season, their profligacy in front of goal has meant they have struggled to put games to bed, which has in turn seen them drop precious points.

Dimitri Payet was booked after 55 minutes for fouling Jesse Lingard. 10 minutes later, he went down in the box under a challenge from Marcos Rojo.

Louis van Gaal claimed Payet had dived after the game while Slaven Bilic, unsurprisingly, argued he didn't.

Referee Martin Atkinson didn't award a penalty, but then also didn't book Payet for diving.

With the scoreline still at 0-0, Dimitri Payet broke in to the box and went to ground under a challenge from Marcos Rojo. Payet was appealing for a penalty, but none was given. Replays showed that Rojo may have got the slighted of touches, but Payet was already throwing himself to the floor.

Payet, already on a yellow card, could have been shown a second for simulation and sent off.
