Chelsea have video nasty of rivals

Chelsea chiefs have a video nasty of opponents' behaviour during games.

The DVD is part of the Blues' bid to escape punishment for failing to control their players against Derby.

Avram Grant's side were charged after surrounding referee Andre Marriner as they protested against Michael Essien's red card for lashing out at Kenny Miller last week.

And they will present the DVD to the FA to prove other clubs like Manchester United, Wigan and Derby have been guilty of much worse and not been charged, says The Sun.

Grant also slammed West Ham boss Alan Curbishley's claims that big teams are favoured by refs.

He reckons West Ham boss Curbs is merely playing mind games before the sides meet this afternoon in their Premier League crunch at Stamford Bridge.

Grant added: "I don't think he believes that. It's a psychological war. It's OK.

"He can say anything. You can see the facts. I don't want to speak about the other teams.

"We've had three red cards against us in the last three months and none of them was a red card.

"If that means we're 'privileged', I don't want to think what the alternative is."
