West Ham boss Alan Curbishley again dismissed Avram Grant's influence on Chelsea's revival after Saturday's defeat at Stamford Bridge.

"I just think that the big thing since Avram took over is that John Terry's come back, Frank Lampard's come back, Drogba's on fire," he said. "I don't know if they were all there when Jose had them. I think he [Grant] has come in and done what Gary Megson's done [at Bolton]. I think he's just said: 'Get on with it. You're all good players.' I don't think he's changed too much.

"He can't change the personnel because he can't do anything about that at the moment. I think he's got a really good side and he's asked them to get on with it."
