Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech insists the players are fully behind underfire coach Avram Grant.

Cech has told the London Evening Standard that the relationship between boss Grant and his players remains strong.

"I think the relationships here are like in every club in the world in terms of the coach and the players," he said.

"We're a big club and have a coach who was unknown in England in the past and that is why everyone tries to find new things. If the relationship was not working, we would not be winning. This is clear evidence of that being just speculation."
