The Blues are third in the Premier League table, one point above fourth-placed Manchester City.

The Blues climbed above Manchester City following our 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday and Manchester City’s 3-1 loss to Liverpool on Sunday.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed how it feels to be above the defending champions in the Premier League table.

Lampard said: “It’s nice to be above City, because I’ve got huge respect for them. What a team.”

Despite Chelsea being third, former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho isn’t convinced because the Blues are yet to beat a top four team this season.

Mourinho told Sky Sports: “Really great work by Frank but they have lost twice against Manchester United, they lost against Liverpool at home, they conceded four goals against Ajax.

“I am very curious to see Chelsea in the next match at the Etihad because I think I am curious to see if they found that great empathy between the good football they play and the pragmatism they must have to play against the top teams.

“When they find that I think they have a great team for the future.

“I don’t think they have it in them to finish in the top two – but I believe very seriously that they will finish top four.”
