The winning goal - United's first home goal in this season's Champions League - sparked an outburst from Mourinho, who launched a drinks bottle holder into the ground as emotions got the better of him.
In the end, Marouane Fellaini's injury time victor allowed the Portuguese to vent on the sideline, hurling a drinks holder into the Old Trafford turf as United took the lead.
But for much of the game, it didn't look like that victor was going to come for the Red Devils and, as we so often see, United finished the match by pumping balls up towards Fellaini as they desperately searched for a goal.
It was hardly the inspiring response United had hoped for after Saturday's tepid 0-0 draw with strugglers Crystal Palace, but Mourinho still used the Group H win as a chance to stick two fingers up at the doubters. "If it touched my hand, it was not on goal".
"From my position, David's save - only one save in the whole game - but it looks a phenomenal save", said Mourinho. "Everybody knows I am a team player", said Fellaini, who said he felt the belief from Mourinho.

Should such a plan go ahead, it may deter people from attempting to migrate to the USA from Central America via Mexico. Sanchez did not explain in the statement why The Washington Post had quoted her as saying there had been agreement.
"In this case, we have the best goalkeeper in the world and I know that he wants to stay".
Fellaini's arrival in 2013 as a 27.5 million pounds signing by his former Everton boss David Moyes, was hardly greeted with enthusiasm by United fans who were already underwhelmed by the choice of successor to Alex Ferguson.
"Never one of my teams stays behind the group phase".
Because I think everyone is frustrated when you see the team starting the way we did.
"We've just scored a goal but we're talking about Jose Mourinho's reaction", Ferdinand added in the studio. But obviously the most important thing is to qualify.
Romelu Lukaku also makes way with Marcus Rashford getting a run-out up front with Antony Martial and Jesse Lingard offering support but there is no place for Alexis Sanchez in Mourinho's matchday squad.
