Chelsea manager Grant wants his team to be more lethal

Chelsea might be still in with a shout in the English Premier League title chase this season but manager Avram Grant wants his team to be more lethal and merciless. This after watching his multinational team struggle to overcome Reading in the English Premier League on Wednesday; the Blues managed to beat the Royals 1-0.

Fox Sports quotes the Israeli as saying:

I am very pleased with the performance and that we won. But we should have scored more goals. We had a lot of chances one-on-one with the goalkeeper. I would be happier if we had scored more goals. I think over the last three months, we have seen the development of the team – and how we have kept our style even though we have missed a lot of players. I hope that we play like this in every game and create chances, because I don’t think we will miss them like we did in this game. I will be very happy if we create five, six or more chances every game – then we will score more. If we create so many chances we want to score more. It is good that we win anyway. But we need to put the ball into the net.

Scoring goals could become an asset at the end of the season when the title race may well come to hinge on a goal difference.
