Jose Mourinho has praised the work of Frank Lampard after Chelsea recorded their sixth straight victory in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Lampard’s vibrant young side have recovered superbly from the 4-0 defeat they suffered against Manchester United at Old Trafford on the opening weekend of the campaign and are currently thrid in the table, eight points behind current leaders Liverpool.

Youngsters Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Reece James have thrived under Lampard’s stewardship, while the likes of Jorginho, Willian and Cesar Azpilicueta are enjoying new leases of life having struggled under Maurizio Sarri’s regime.

Despite their sensational form, Mourinho is worried about how Chelsea will perform in the heavyweight contests this season given their solid league form has been punctuated by worrying results in the cup competitions.

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.’
