Avram Grant refused to put a time limit on his desire to make Chelsea an attacking force but is satisfied with the work in progress after his side comfortably defeated Schalke 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League.

Goals from Florent Malouda and Didier Drogba either side of the break kept Chelsea on top of Group B, and while Grant was happy with the performance - achieved on billionaire owner Roman Abramovich´s 41st birthday - he insists it will take time to achieve his desire to turn Chelsea into an attacking force.

Grant declared: "We can play better. But we played positive, good football and scored two goals and could have scored more. We are in first place in the group table with seven points so you can´t ask for any more at this stage.
