Mourinho's men were lacklustre for most of the game, but received a slice of luck deep into injury time when a shot from Luke Shaw was handled by Ashley Williams in the penalty area.

Phil Jagielka's first goal in nearly two years looked to have caused terminal damage to United's hopes of finishing in the Premier League top four.

United have now gone 20 matches unbeaten in the Premier League but remain outside the Champions League places - largely on account of drawing 10 games during this period.

There was misfortune, too, when Paul Pogba headed against the bar after the break before Ibrahimovic also had a headed goal ruled out for offside, with TV replays suggesting it had been the closest of calls.

Nonetheless, United didn't deserve the three points after another shapeless performance in which they dominated possession - 61.5 per cent - but managed only three shots on target.

"I see it as two points dropped", Carrick said.

Silence momentarily fell upon Old Trafford as the visiting fans at the opposite end of the ground realised it had gone in, with Romelu Lukaku then flashing wide as United wobbled.

"They kept going and kept going and obviously gave us that goal to give us the point".

United trailed for 72 minutes and it was Zlatan Ibrahimovic who scored a penalty in stoppage time to rescue a point for the Red Devils.

Mourinho confirmed 19-year-old forward Rashford, who has not scored a league goal since September, was one of those having trouble on the confidence front, but described him as "phenomenal.an fantastic professional" and stressed "the only thing he deserves is support".

"I feel good", he told MUTV. They started fast, but I think we controlled well, defended well and we made some mistakes in the second half.

Maybe Ibrahimovic will be in an LA Galaxy shirt next season after all...

United enjoyed a lot of the ball in the early stages, but struggled to create clear-cut chances against a resolute Toffees defence.

"The games are coming thick and fast, so we'll get ourselves back in training and ready to go again against Leicester on Sunday". Meanwhile, George Boyd lifted Burnley away from the Premier League relegation zone as the Scotland winger sealed a 1-0 home win over Stoke.
