Robin van Persie struck deep into stoppage time to cancel out Didier Drogba's opener, and when asked about the performance of the veteran Ivorian, Mourinho preferred to spread the plaudits across his entire team.
The Portuguese told reporters after the game: "For me as a coach it's not fair to speak about Didier, because my team was fantastic. They were brilliant. The second half was much better. From the start of the first half, we showed we wanted to win.
"In the second half, we didn't give them chances they wanted. To come here to Old Trafford the way we did - it was fantastic by my boys."
Mourinho's side are currently top of the Premier League.
