Grant delighted with Chelsea pair Kalou, Shevchenko

Chelsea boss Avram Grant is delighted with the form of strikers Andriy Shevchenko and Salomon Kalou in the absence of crocked star Didier Drogba.

He said: "I am very proud of what we achieved over the busy Christmas period - taking 10 points from 12.

"It shows the strength of squad we have because many teams would have failed to perform without so many important players.

"But we continued to fight until the end of every game and that has made me proud of the staff and the players.

"I have been pleased with the way Andriy Shevchenko and Salomon Kalou have played since we lost Didier to injury.

"Both of them have shown how to score vital goals and lead this team with desire and quality."
