Spurs were able to keep a clean sheet in the 4-0 victory.
"I think the team played well defensively, it was a good compromise from the team," said Mourinho.
"The defensive line cannot play as high as we did if the midfield and attacking players do not press, especially the player with the ball. It was a collective performance, very positive collective performance with loads of effort.
"Even minute 92, 93 two corners, the team defended like it was 1-0 and not 4-0 and this compromise is fundamentally what the team news.
"Then Davinson played a very good game, very dominant, fresh, didn't play the last match and he was very good."
