Grant expects pair to play

Chelsea manager Avram Grant expects both John Terry and Didier Drogba to be fit for the Champions League Final. Both captain Terry and main striker Drogba suffered injury scares in the final game of the Premier League season. Terry was stretchered off in the early stages of last weekend's 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers after dislocating his elbow, while Drogba required heavy strapping to a knee problem picked up just minutes from full-time. However, Grant is confident that he will have both key players available for the May 21 showdown with Manchester United in Moscow. "We have not had training today (Tuesday) or yesterday so we have to wait until training tomorrow to see how they are," he told Sky Sports News. "John Terry I think will be okay. Didier Drogba, I don't know how serious that is, but I think he will do everything possible to play in this game." Meanwhile, Grant claims he in unconcerned by continued speculation suggesting he will be replaced in the Stamford Bridge hot-seat in the summer. "I have always said, even when I first took the team, I have to focus on my job, not what other people say," continued the Israeli. "What I must now do is concentrate on the game on Wednesday and not look to the past or the future."
