Grant unhappy despite victory

Chelsea manager Avram Grant proved he learned a trick or two from former boss Jose Mourinho after whinging in the face of victory.

The Blues moved up to fourth in the Barclays Premier League after a 2-0 win over Derby at Pride Park courtesy of goals in either half from Salomon Kalou and Shaun Wright-Phillips, however, the win was overshadowed when Michael Essien was shown a straight red card in injury time for flailing an arm in the face of Rams striker Kenny Miller.

Grant was far from happy with the decision, saying: "I don´t like to speak against a referee. I don´t want to say something against him but I have a feeling - and I was warned about this before I came to Chelsea and I fear it´s true - that we are an easy target for getting red cards."
