"This press conference is pre-Bournemouth, not post-Man City. That is done," he said.
"When you lose, you have a little bit more desire to win. Nobody likes to lose once, nobody ever wants to lose twice. That is the same for every team in the world. You have that little bit extra to give.
"The motivation is based on trying to win all the time. We go match after match. We try to win and get maximum points. We have to try."
Mourinho did respond City boss Pep Guardiola's response to the tunnel bust-up in which he denied his players over celebrated the victory.
"He says he says, I'm not here to comment on his words the only thing I can say is that for me was just a question of diversity. Diversity in behaviours, diversity in education, just that and nothing more."
