EPL: Manchester United, a victim of double standards, says Jose Mourinho

Manchester: Jose Mourinho claimed he is being judged unfairly by critics after Manchester United conceded a late Leighton Baines penalty in a damaging 1-1 draw at Everton.
Mourinho’s team have won just twice in the league since the end of August, a run which has featured numerous draws and has derailed United’s hopes of winning a title.
Mourinho, who earned a reputation for not always winning in the most attractive style when in charge of Chelsea, insists his side is playing well and that he is being held to a double standard.
“You have to make a decision because when my teams are playing pragmatic football and winning matches and winning titles, you say it is not right and nice," Mourinho said.
“When my teams play very, very well, there is a huge change in relation to the past two or three years. Now you say what matters is to get result, no matter what.
“At the moment teams are getting results, defending with 11 players, keeping the ball and playing on the counter-attack. You have to make a decision.”
Man United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has denied deliberately kicking Everton’s Seamus Coleman “I heard one of the commentators say I kicked someone in the head on purpose, but it was a 50-50 duel ,” Zlatan said. “Trust me, I know how to kick someone in the head and make him fall asleep.”
