Grant: I've done more for Chelsea than Arsenal's Wenger in same time

Chelsea boss Avram Grant has praised today's opponents Arsenal for the way they give manager Arsene Wenger time to build his teams.

"When Arsene took over at Arsenal they called them boring Arsenal and I think not even one person would say it now," said the Israeli.

"I think not even one person would say it about Chelsea this year. I think we have an exciting team playing good football. Sometimes we drop points but the team is on the right way. And to change, to go to a different way, won't come in one day.

"I don't think in Chelsea there is time to do it like it was in Manchester United before Alex Ferguson took his first trophy. But I think this is the right way to do it.

"In 10 years? If Chelsea continue to go in this way I'm sure they will be a big success and it will be good. But I think the situation even now is good."
