The home side dominated the opening minutes of the contest as United failed to find any rhythm in attack and looked shaky at the back.
The following day Pogba was involved in a terse exchange with Mourinho on the training pitch, further evidence that the relationship between the pair is at breaking point.
But it was in defence where there were most post-match questions.
McTominay was making his first Premier League start of the season, having impressed Mourinho last term, and the 21-year-old midfielder was commended again by his manager.

The Portuguese manager walked into the game with growing pressure as United are yet to get a win after their draw with Wolves in the Premier League last weekend and their exit from the Carabao Cup following their loss to Frank Lampard's Derby County in midweek.
