Chelsea boss Grant praises underfire Cole

Chelsea boss Avram Grant was pleased with the performance of Ashley Cole in their 1-1 draw with Portsmouth on Saturday.

The Sun says Cole was making his first appearance since his extra-curricular activities hit the headlines.

The England full-back largely kept his emotions under control, even with BOTH sets of fans singing: "He's here, he's there, he's shagging everywhere, Ashley Cole."

Grant simply said: "Ashley was fantastic. He is a good player and a good professional. I have the two best left-backs in England."
