Mourinho hails Manchester United’s ‘quality and creativity’ after Everton win

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was in good spirits after his side’s 2-1 Premier League victory over Everton at Old Trafford earlier today.

The Portuguese, who has in recent weeks been under-fire for United’s lacklustre displays, was glowing in his assessment of Sunday’s victory.

“We started well, the second-half we played even better than we did in the first-half. We had great control of game, quality, creativity, possession, we were solid in defense and did not deserve the last 15 minutes.’’ Mourinho told the BBC.

“I was pleased with the referee (Jonathan Moss) but he was testing my patience with six minutes of injury time. When you are winning, it is always difficult for my emotions and heart.”

The win still leaves United in eighth position, nine points behind leaders Liverpool, but Mourinho only wanted to focus on the positives.

“I am happy with the points which we needed. The last three Premier League matches we have had two victories at home and an undeserved point at Stamford Bridge.”
