Since the disappointing defeat at Brighton, Mourinho has gone for the softly, softly approach and spent the last week putting his arm around his players.
Many have been surprised by his sudden change of mood reports The Sun.
Mourinho has been accused of being outwardly moody and sullen but behind the scenes he can be a very different man when he knows what's needed.
Mourinho clearly believes there has been enough criticism from outside the club without him needing to add to it and has been doing his best to lift his squad.
The manager of last season's runners-up to Manchester City has already found himself under pressure just two games into the season.
