Despite beating Basel with a comfortable 3-0 scoreline on Tuesday, Mourinho criticised his team's loss of concentration towards the end of the encounter, suggesting that his players had become careless in possession.
"Three points are important at home. Until 2-0 we were very stable, we played with confidence," he said, according to the Daily Star.
"After 2-0 everything changed, we stopped playing seriously and stopped making right decisions. We could have put ourselves in trouble.
"We were playing fantasy football, PlayStation football. I don't like it, flicks and tricks. We gambled and you have to respect your opponent.
"I don't know if goal difference will play a part. We lost position, our shape, we lost balls in easy situations.
"I didn't like it, the players relaxed too much."
Goals from Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford helped United win comfortably on the night, although Paul Pogba limped off the field early in the first half with an injury.
