Chelsea have been told they must play Wigan on Monday, April 14 and then Everton on Thursday, April 17 to suit television schedules.

Grant, whose side are five points behind leaders Manchester United, claimed it gave United and Arsenal an unfair advantage.

He said: "I don't understand why we need to play on a Thursday. It's unfair.

"When we come to the end of the season it should be equal for all the teams. We need to fight in any way that we can to make it a fair decision."
