Grant: Chelsea elimination beyond words

Avram Grant admits elimination from the Champions League tonight would be beyond words for Chelsea.

Asked to describe the scenario if his side were knocked out by Olympiacos, Grant said: "You know better than me, but if we lose I'm sure you will find the words - you are every good with them."

Since Grant took over from Jose Mourinho in the wake of the 1-1 draw at home to Rosenborg last September, Chelsea have conceded just one goal in nine hours of European football.

And the manager insisted: "It is expected at this club to win every game.

"It is very important for us to ensure we don't concede against Olympiakos.

"We drew 1-1 at home to Rosenborg and if that happens we're out, so not losing goals is very important."
