Abramovich jetting back to watch Chelsea

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is expected to be at Stamford Bridge for tonight's Champions League clash with Olympiacos.

Abramovich is tipped to return from Russia in time for the match, having travelled to Moscow for the presidential election.

But his presence - he missed the 4-0 drubbing of West Ham last Saturday - will not faze Chelsea's manager Avram Grant.

Grant said: "In football today there is a lot of pressure and at a big club it pushes you to try and achieve the best things - and I like the pressure.

"The priority of this club is to win trophies and to be a big team we want to be in the final of the Champions League.

"But it's not easy as there are a lot of very good teams left in the competition."
