Grant Criticises West Ham for Chelsea Failings

Avram Grant has criticised West Ham for being too aggressive in today's game. Unfortunately for Grant Chelsea were by far the dirtier side. Grant said,

"West Ham were lucky they got only one yellow card in the first 20 to 25 minutes. They were very aggressive."

However there were five Chelsea bookings today and three for West Ham. And whilst at least two of West Ham's bookings seemed to come from Chelsea dives at least three of Chelsea's bookings came from cynical and dangerous fouls. Mikel for one was lucky to not be sent off. When he fouled Ashton on the edge of the box in the second half he was already on a yellow card but the ref inexplicably booked Terry instead.

So Avram whilst West Ham might have been aggressive your side were actually dirty and dangerous.
