Mourinho faces another touchline suspension after being sent to the stands for kicking a water bottle after seeing midfielder Paul Pogba booked for simulation during the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.
However, Jones has defended his manager and feels that the Portuguese does not deserve to be criticised for showing his "willingness to win".
The 24-year-old is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "No, I think that's just passion. I like to see that from anyone - players, staff - it's passion for the game and a willingness to win.
"We all want to win just as much as each other. We just need to stick together, keep training well, keep creating chances and we will get the goals."
Mourinho has already served a touchline ban this season after disputing a decision made in the Premier League fixture with Burnley.
