United hosted Guardiola's side for what was a tense 90 minutes of Premier League football on Sunday, with goals from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi seeing City over the line.
Prior to the clash, Mourinho criticised his rival's players for going to ground too easily, which is ironically what Ander Herrera was booked for in the derby at the weekend, and Guardiola responded to his counterpart's claim after the match.
"It's not true that my players go down easily," the Spaniard said, according to The Independent.
"That is not an argument I believe. He was talking about players diving before this match, but this is not what my players do."
City's win took them 11 points clear of second-placed United in the EPL, while they have also now won 14 league matches in a row.
