Zico: Chelsea more defensive under Grant

Fenerbahce coach Zico says Chelsea have become more defensive under Avram Grant.

The Brazilian legend told the Observer: "Chelsea became a more defensive team after Jose Mourinho left. They used to know exactly what they wanted. They used to mark in the opponents' half of the pitch, apply pressure and show high levels of confidence. Now I see Chelsea more restricted to defence, waiting for the moment to counter-attack. They are obviously still very dangerous, because of the quality of their players."
