Chelsea are currently third in the Premier League after 12 round of matches, and it’s been progress after progress for Frank Lampard’s side.
Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has praised the work Lampard has done so far, however, he’s still worried about how the Blues will perform against the big sides.
Chelsea are yet to beat any top English side, having lost to Manchester United twice this season and lost to Liverpool at home and were beaten by the Reds in the Super Cup.
Mourinho believes that while the Chelsea team is a good side, he isn’t sure if Lampard’s youngsters can perform against the top sides in the league yet. Thus, he’s tipping Chelsea for a top four finish but doesn’t think that the Blues can finish in the top two.
He told Sky Sports: “In the first weekend I was worried and I’m still worried with the big matches. I think fantastic work. The kids coming into the team are fitting amazingly well with the top class players like Willian and Kante.
“I think really, really great work by Frank. But, they lost twice against United, they lost against Liverpool at home.
“They conceded four goals against Ajax and I’m very, very curious to see Chelsea in the next match at the Etihad.
“I’m curious to see if they found that great empathy between the good football they play and the pragmatism that the top teams must have to play against top teams.
“When they find that I think they have a great team for the future. I don’t believe in them to finish top two, but I believe very seriously for them to finish top four.”
