Everton boss Ronald Koeman: "I feel myself more comfortable here than (with) the way Liverpool tried to press, They are strong, United, they have individual qualities". Jose Mourinho's side is four points behind fourth-place Manchester City with nine games left and has a busy schedule, especially in April, as it is involved in the Europa League.
The result left United in fifth place on 54 points, four points behind rivals Manchester City, who now occupy the fourth and final Champions League qualifying spot.
Despite winning the Capital One Cup, United's season has been disappointing domestically, with Jose Mourinho's men now sat fifth in the Premier League table.
"But it's an wonderful unbeaten run we've had (of 20 league games) but too many draws at home (nine in the league) and that's why we are in the position we are".
Ashley Williams was the villain for Everton as he handled Luke Shaw's goal-bound effort and Ibrahimovic stepped up to convert the resulting spot kick to make it 1-1 with virtually the last kick of the game. The clock had ticked into the 94th minute when Ibrahimovic slotted home the penalty. It was a gut-wrenching way for the game to end for Everton, who had taken an early lead through a piece of Phil Jagielka brilliance.
It was hardly a celebratory mood inside Old Trafford after the final whistle.
"He (Shaw) had a good performance but it was his body with my brain", Mourinho told the British media. Things can't get any better for his Leicester counterpart, Craig Shakespeare.
"Sometimes you get a late goal here and it gives you a good feeling but tonight it improved the feeling, to where we were".
With its first win in more than two months, Burnley can start to think about planning for another season in the Premier League.
Then as if it to prove his point, he picked up where he left off before a three-match suspension, scoring the goal in the 93rd minute that once again bailed out United, helping them eke out a 1-1 draw.
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".
