On a wet night at Old Trafford enlivened by the sight of 3,000 visiting fans all in yellow rain macs cheering on the underdogs, United began brightly, even with Mourinho having left Paul Pogba on the bench and omitted Alexis Sanchez.
Well, based on Mourinho's reaction to Marouane Fellaini's stoppage time goal, not exactly.
"I know he is happy here, I know he wants to stay and I know the board are working to make that happen". "David had only one save in the whole game but it is a phenomenal save".
And it somewhat goes without saying that De Gea, voted the club's best player four times in five years, should be made the highest paid player at United by some considerable distance.
"I'm pretty sure that a proper football manager would never criticise another one for emotional reaction on the touchline because it's deja vu".
The result, coupled with Valencia's 1-0 defeat to Juventus, means the Red Devils join the Italians in booking a spot in the knockout phase with one group game to spare.

The "caravans" have begun arriving in Tijuana, Mexico, across the border from San Diego, California. Goldsmith said since there's little chance they can be deported, the government must release them.
Asked about the Pogba friendship, Lukaku said in an interview with Bleacher Report: "It's like taking and giving, I'd say".
Mourinho has turned to Fellaini on several occasions as an extra attacker, using his height to allow a more direct style in the final stages when chasing a game.
The Belgium global was benched for clashes with Everton and Manchester City, playing a total of 58 minutes across the two games, while he was also a substitute against Young Boys in the Champions League on Tuesday.
"Because then I know I have a warrior who is going to give everything to the team and hopefully he knows what he can have from me, and then we just go out there and ball". Can I have on the touchline, where not a lot of the ones that comment [on] football, they were there? "For the ones that have a nice life, it's different".
"So, don't speak about Lukaku and you tell me Lukaku doesn't score a goal at Old Trafford since March".
Mourinho's tendency to turn to Fellaini in times of need is part of a bigger problem; the Portuguese is blatantly failing to get the best out of his attacking talent.
