Grant sets sights on title

Chelsea boss Avram Grant set his sights on the Premier League title after thrashing hapless Derby County 6-1 at Stamford Bridge. The Blues moved to within five points of leaders Arsenal with a game in hand after Wednesday's rout of the league's bottom club. Frank Lampard found the net four times, while Salomon Kalou and Joe Cole were also on the mark in a one-sided encounter. "I think we have a good chance of winning the Premier League," said Grant afterwards. "If we win our game in hand we are two points behind Arsenal and they have to play here. Also, their games are not against easy teams. "There are ten games to go and anything can happen." Meanwhile, Grant rubbished reports suggesting he was lining up a summer move for Werder Bremen's highly-rated Brazilian midfielder Diego. Diego was linked with the Blues as a replacement for either Lampard or Michael Ballack during a summer of change at Stamford Bridge. "Chelsea are linked with so many players it is impossible to comment every time, but sometimes it is necessary to protect the players we have," he added. "I can say we have no interest in this player. He is a good player of course, but he is not being considered."
