Chelsea’s Grant Offers No Guarantee

Recommended Posts

Chelsea boss Avram Grant is not unduly perturbed as he gets ready to welcome back the key players from African Nations Cup duty, as he was when the likes of Didier Drogba, Michael Essien, Salomon Kalou and Mikel had left for the African continental tournament.

The Blues have gone about their task with minimal fuss and have maintained their position as serious title contenders as they are just six points behind the leaders, Arsenal in the Premiership table.

Grant’s side has been well served the strength in depth of the Blues as even with injuries keeping out John Terry and Frank Lampard, the west Londoners have coped admirably well. And they can only get better with players’ return and the Israeli has an enjoyable selection headache.

"We have proved that we can do without them but we also proved we can do it with them also," said Grant.

"Of course, when you have a bad situation you also have a positive situation.

"But other players have shown themselves at an important time. Now there will be competition between them but it is also the time to say good words about the players who have done so well in their absence."

Avram Grant has a tough task at his hand trying to pick up his best 11 now that all the players are nearly fit and returning from the ANC but I am sure he would relish the prospect of having a fully fit squad at his disposal. Its going to be a long hard season and everyone will get a chance to play their part.
