Grant calls for title play-off

10 May 2008 01:09
Chelsea manager Avram Grant believes there should be a play-off to decide the Premier League title if his side and Manchester United are still level on points after Sunday's final round of games. United have a far superior goal difference going into their 38th and last match of the season at Wigan Athletic while Chelsea face Bolton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge. Grant said: "We've won games 6-0, 6-1, 4-0 and 3-0 this season. When you miss so many players, the first target is to win games, especially in the beginning. "I must admit that United have played some very good football. They think this is the best season since Sir Alex Ferguson came. But I prefer the system in Italy. You play a play-off if you're level and it is decided on that. "I have interest now to say that. But I like it anyway. Sometimes, you score more goals against weaker teams. If you have the same points, you are at the same level. "You can't push a button and change things immediately. We've won many games playing attractive football. We can change it with the players we have here. "There is no doubt that in the last month we have played very good games. The best football at the right times against big teams and big managers. "Whatever happens on Sunday I will be very proud of what we have done this season. "Alex said a few months ago it was the best Manchester United side since he's been coaching. We've given a battle. "If they take the title, and I'm not sure they will, it will be on goal difference."
