Chelsea boss Avram Grant insist the fans are with him, despite copping pelters from the Stamford Bridge crowd during their 1-1 draw with Wigan Athletic on Monday.

He said: "I respect the fans because they are there before any manager and after any manager, before any player and after any player.

"I respect the last fan sitting in the last row but I know as well in this room that 20 people do not think the same.

"I think most fans respect what we have done for them. You have to respect what we have done this season. We have taken so many points."
