Chelsea boss Grant laughs off Fergie mind games

Chelsea boss Avram Grant has dismissed Sir Alex Ferguson's claims that Manchester United are in a stronger position having won the league title.

"No team has the advantage and Sir Alex can say whatever he likes," Grant said. "They want to take the Champions League and we want to take the Champions League, but no team has an advantage before the game.

"I'm very confident we can beat United. We've played them twice and beat them two weeks ago at Stamford Bridge. You can say what happened in my first game at Old Trafford - red card, penalty, goal. They were not the right decisions and I don't think they are better than us. John Terry, I think, will be OK. Didier Drogba, I don't know how serious it is, but he'll do everything to play in this game."
