The England worldwide played an hour for the Red Devils in their straightforward 3-0 win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light after being handed just his eighth league start of the campaign.
They have equalled the second-worst run of Premier League games without a goal having not scored for seven games and are 10 points adrift of 17th-placed Hull City. You need these players to break it.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic sparked United into life with a superb opener before Sebastian Larsson was sent off for a risky tackle, leaving space for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and substitute Marcus Rashford to seal the three points after the break.
"The game was obviously open with the 0-0 but we were in control quite easily but that control was without danger.
It was "yes", Mourinho, whose side moved above Arsenal and are four points behind Manchester City with a game in hand, told Sky Sport.
Eight of Sunderland's 14 Premier League goals at the Stadium of Light this season have been scored by Jermain Defoe (57%).
"I'm not anxious, I just play my game, enjoy it, and it seems like the older I get the more intelligent I get". We controlled the game well.
"Of course when you play against a team of 10 and the team is not losing it is sometimes more hard".
"After Liverpool and Manchester City's victories, if we didn't win today it's nearly mathematically impossible (to finish fourth)". In the end there is one team going to be champions and three to be relegated, but everyone is a good professional and gives everything, fights all season.
The Portuguese manager recently said the 21-year-old was way off challenging for a starting place in the United first team.
Regardless of the personnel though, the most important thing on Sunday for United is all three points, and given the quality with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the final third, they'll expect to have too much for Sunderland. "We played some fantastic football in the first 45 minutes, really good team performance today". We played with one more for a long time.
He added: "Sergio plays Thursday in the Europa League, that decision was [already] made".
