Mourinho, who made nine changes from the midweek Capital One Cup victory over Arsenal, later admitted he had got it wrong.
Asked if he had made the right choices, he said: "No, I made 11 mistakes, 11 mistakes. I should have picked another 11 and not this one. I made 11 mistakes.
"It's the feeling I have. When my team plays so badly, it's the feeling I have.
"I'm exaggerating. Of course we had some guys with, I am not saying outstanding, but with some normal good performances, but the feeling is that I made 11 wrong choices."
