Chelsea boss Grant: Sinclair has big role

Chelsea boss Avram Grant was delighted to see Scott Sinclair grab his first goal for the club in last night's Carling Cup victory at Hull City.

"Scotty I know very well because I like to see many games of the reserve team last year, like I watch many other teams, and don't forget that I have been here two months so I have seen him in the preparations since we were in Los Angeles," said Grant.

"We have three games each week so we need all our players as I think some of them cannot play three games in a week for the next two months. We have a big squad so it was an opportunity for other players to play 90 minutes because we will need everyone one of them in the future."
