Chelsea boss Avram Grant has refused to put Ricardo Carvalho´s Boxing Day dismissal in the same bracket as Peter Crouch´s horror tackle at Stamford Bridge.

Carvalho got a straight red card for a two-footed challenge on Aston Villa´s Gabriel Agbonlahor on Boxing Day, one week after Liverpool striker Crouch was sent off for a lunge at Mikel John Obi.

"When you go with intention to hurt players, I don´t like it," he said. "For me it is clear that this is not the same situation, and we apologised anyway. Peter Crouch was angry, he said Mikel did something to him. He (Crouch) did not even apologise. He said many other things that were not clever."
