Chelsea assistant manager Jody Morris has laughed off Jose Mourinho's sentiments that The Blues could struggle against top teams in the Premier League.
The Frank Lampard-led team won their sixth consecutive match on Saturday, beating Crystal Palace 2-0 to move to third, but the former boss is not convinced despite their achievements.
Speaking on Sky Sports over the weekend, the56-year-old lauded Lampard for the good job they have done but noted they have really struggled against the big boys.
"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."
In his response Morris tweeted with the caption 'Jose is still worried' followed by laughter emojis, accompanied by a short Mourinho clip airing his thoughts.

Mourinho led Chelsea to twice; 2004 to 2007 and 2013 to 2015, winning the Premier League title and other domestic cups, with Lampard one of his trusted generals during his playing days.
The Blues will play Manchester City after the international break, hoping to continue with their impressive form.
