The likes of Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay and Phil Jones also started in a much-changed XI in a 3-5-2 formation, but the team failed to gel and did not create many genuine chances.
United are now 19 adrift new EPL champions Manchester City with one game left to play in the season.
"We are the second best team in the Premier League, a fantastic competition with lots of good teams with six teams trying to finish first", said Mourinho in a post-match press conference.
"We have one more game on Sunday and we want to finish strong, then we can go forward to next season". But since the moment we felt it was impossible to finish first we had the target to finish second and it is done on Thursday.
The draw extends Jose Mourinho's unbeaten streak against David Moyes to 11 games.
And while he said United had been the ones pushing for three points at the London Stadium, he admitted having the point the club needed to secure second spot in the Premier League became a factor as the game wore on. Of course, people will argue that they did not get close enough to City in the title race but, as far as I can see, this has been a very good season for them.
The former Manchester United boss has guided the club to survival - yet there remains serious doubt over his position ahead of next season, with the club already starting to identify possible replacements.
"I think we need both things [more quality and a better mindset] that you mentioned".
A lackluster United display was reflected in Pogba again failing to take control of the game. I can give you the guarantee that the club doesn't want to sell him. Mourinho has poisoned his own dressing room, as he did at Chelsea and Madrid, the rot hasn't set in completely yet but players who traditionally have been the corner stone of Old Trafford are being publicly being called out on the back of one start every couple of months.
