Following a 4-0 thrashing of Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday, Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho has suggested the Premier League fixtures for Everton is unfair.

Everton have endured a dire start to the season and have not scored a goal in any of four successive defeats in all competitions.

They began the season with a 1-0 win against Stoke City and drew away to Manchester City in their second game, but has since fallen to Chelsea, Tottenham and now Manchester United.

Speaking after the game at Old Trafford, Mourinho admits that the Toffees having to play top 5 teams consecutively at the start of the season could be very challenging.

“Everton are going to be fine but they are living a difficult moment,” the Portuguese said after the game.

“The fixtures they have got, I would not like this all together at the same time. I would like one of the top five, but all of them, that is not fair for them.”

Everton are on four points after five games and are now into the bottom three on the log.

They will host Sunderland in the EFL Cup on September 20 before hosting Bournemouth in their sixth league clash next weekend.
