The United boss will have been looking for a response from his players after back-to-back defeats against Derby and West Ham but they rarely threatened and did not significantly test visiting goalkeeper Neto until the closing stages.
The latest of which came at the London Stadium on Saturday, where West Ham ran out 3-1 winners over the Red Devils.
And, after calling the club a mess following the defeat, former United midfielder Scholes has admitted he is surprised Mourinho is still manager at Old Trafford.

If water containing the amoeba goes up the nose, the amoeba can invade and cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain. He added: '"Our hearts and prayers are with his family, friends, and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time".
"He's coming out in press conferences constantly having a go at players, having at go at people above him because he's not getting what he wants", said Scholes.
Jose Mourinho has set a new unwanted record for the longest time without a home win in his senior coaching career.
With the likes of Scholes and Alan Shearer believing his time at United is running out, Mourinho needs some positive results to get the season back on track.
