Yet, despite United's strong recent run, Wolves looked capable of handing the home manager an unwanted first, with Mourinho seeking to avoid an impressive statistic of never having lost consecutive home league games throughout his managerial career.
In his first programme notes for nearly four weeks, Mourinho penned a paean to United's followers who stayed until the end against Tottenham. And the former Chelsea boss has done that before at Old Trafford as well - he dropped Eric Bailly after the Brighton defeat, and Smalling and Lindelof have stepped up since then. "The credit of our positive spirit in the last three victories is yours", Mourinho wrote.
"But I think we are going to be a better team". The boys had played well and were unfortunate.
"I think Wolves, by the way they faced the game, they deserve [the point] because they play like I like to play, which is like the World Cup final".
"Of course, we had a better result and one point is better than zero".
'Whether we can win or not is a very tough order but we need to have our fans coming away proud of the team'.
'The fact we're on telly against one of the best teams in the Premier League is a challenge for us.
Jose Mourinho hits out at players' attitude after Wolves draw
"I could say we were exhausted, Champions League, bad pitch [against Young Boys], the body suffers the different impact on an artificial rather than actual grass, not coming home after the match". This is something you learn when you're a kid in the academy. "It's hard to win matches when you're not there".
"So, we didn't have a team that was in big trouble with accumulation of matches".
He said: "I can't tell you, because I'm a player. It is a basic law of football".
The hosts were on top after the break, but Raul Jimenez's clever lay-off set up Moutinho for what was a deserved equaliser for the visitors. "Knowing that when you have the ball you have to produce chances and we did that".
The Brazilian midfielder, who joined Manchester United in the summer transfer window, scored his first goal for his new club and came close to scoring a second. You know you don't have much of that.
"I'm proud of the way we played - the way we defended, organised, putting bodies in front of the ball, and the way we created, produced our chances".
