"In the last few months, there have been big changes at Chelsea," said Grant in the Bangkok Post after giving a lecture to Thailand Premier League representatives in the Thai capital.

"I think they are now better than Manchester United or Arsenal. Scolari is a good coach and can bring success to Chelsea.

"Chelsea have a good chance of winning the Premier League."

Grant led Chelsea to two finals after succeeding Jose Mourinho in September - the Blues lost to Tottenham in the Carling Cup and Manchester United in the European showcase.

Chelsea also finished runners-up to United in the league and Grant remains steadfast in his belief that he is a good manager.

"When I took over Chelsea after Jose Mourinho was fired, the English press and some Chelsea players did not believe in my ability," he said.

"But I proved that to them in the last two or three months when Chelsea nearly won three competitions."
