The Red Devils were hit with a wave of criticism following a goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield, with Mourinho taking most of the flack for his defensive tactics versus Jurgen Klopp’s men.
United responded in style against Spurs as substitute Anthony Martial secured three points for the home team in the 81st minute in a breathless second-half.
Immediately after the win, Sky Sports’ cameras panned across the pitch to show Mourinho shushing directly down the lens – forcing Pochettino to wait for his handshake.
The look on Mauricio Pochettino’s face was a picture before he went in to congratulate his rival on the victory.
Mourinho’s men have a tough week ahead, starting with a clash at home to Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The side then travel to Chelsea next weekend where they will be looking for their second win on the bounce in the English top flight.
