Avram Grant insists there is no crisis at Chelsea and has backed his players to bounce back from their shock FA Cup exit at the hands of Barnsley by closing the gap at the top of the Premier League.

Chelsea face rock-bottom Derby on Wednesday at Stamford Bridge and Grant wants his side to show the same fighting spirit that saw them recover from their Carling Cup final defeat by Tottenham.

"I know that at Chelsea, like a lot of big clubs, every loss is a crisis but it´s not like that," said Grant.
