Chelsea coach Avram Grant has told Peter Crouch he needs to look at himself and his team-mates after the Liverpool striker accused Mikel John Obi of a theatrical reaction to his two-footed lunge at Stamford Bridge.

Crouch was sent off for his tackle on the Nigerian midfielder during their Carling Cup quarter-final tie on Wednesday and has since claimed the Chelsea player was guilty of feigning injury and that foreign stars are destroying the "honesty and integrity" of the English game by diving.

Grant declared: "I think first if Peter Crouch didn´t do what he did, which everybody saw, then Mikel John Obi would not be in that position."
