Jose Mourinho’s son appeared to have a little laugh at his dad’s expense on Twitter today as Chelsea suffered another Premier League defeat.
The Blues lost to Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park, continuing their poor start to the season following dropped points against Swansea City, Crystal Palace and Manchester City.
And just prior to the full-time whistle on Merseyside, Jose Mourinho’s son, Fulham youth team goalkeeper Jose Mourinho Jr, tweeted 15 laughter emojis.

That was obviously seized upon on the social media site by users who thought Jose Jr was taking the mickey out of his old man, which then prompted Mourinho the younger to delete the tweet and issue a clarification.
It’s all a bit silly really, but that’s Twitter for you.
The deleted tweet
What will be concerning for Mourinho is his side’s performance today. They were comprehensively beaten by Everton thanks to a Steven Naismith hat-trick.
The Scot came on as an early substitute and put Everton 2-0 up before a stunning Nemanja Matic strike halved the deficit just before half-time.
With 10 minutes remaining Naismith capped his brilliant performance with his third goal, condemning Mourinho’s side to their third loss in their opening five games.
They will have to improve fast with the Champions League on the horizon next week.
What do you think Chelsea fans - what is wrong with the Blues at the moment?
