Mourinho said he had been impressed with the Blues’ brilliant run of form but conceded he was still ‘worried’ about their defending in the big clashes.

Morris, who was also Lampard’s right hand man at Derby, then responded by pretending to cry in an Instagram video with Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve playing in the background.

According to the Daily Mail, the Stamford Bridge hierarchy were massively unimpressed with Morris’ response to Mourinho, with the report stating the board believed they were ‘unbecoming and inappropriate’ from a senior member of staff.

It is said the 40-year-old has been issued with a warning by the club over how he responds to criticism in the future.

“In the first weekend I was worried and I’m still worried with the big matches,” Mourinho said of his former club. “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.”

Following the international break, Lampard’s men travel to Manchester City in the hope of winning their seventh consecutive league match.
