Grant - Duo will be ready.

Avram Grant expects John Terry and Didier Drogba to be fit in time for the UEFA Champions League final.

The pair picked up injuries in Chelsea's final Premier League game of the season against Bolton on Sunday and were considered doubtful for the European showdown.

The Blues' boss admits that he is yet to put the pair through their paces on the training ground, but is confident that the influential duo will make the trip to Moscow.

"We have not had training today (Tuesday) or yesterday so we have to wait until training tomorrow to see how they are," Grant 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."

Exciting

Grant also revealed his pride at becoming the first Chelsea manager to lead the club to the final of Europe's premier club competition.

"Personally it is very exciting," he said.

"But it is more exciting because it is the first time my club have been in the Champions League final.

"They have tried and never come to the final,and now we are part of the history of a club who want to be a big club, and big clubs reach Champions League finals, so it's very exciting."

Confident

The Israeli is confident that the Blues can prevent United from snatching another trophy from under their noses, after seeing the Red Devils pip them to the league title on a thrilling final day.

"Of course we can beat them," he said.

"We have played against them two times, we won two weeks and we lost at Old Trafford in my first game after the referee gave a red card, penalty and a goal - nothing was the right decision.

"I don't think they are better than us and in these games anything is possible."

Despite leading the club to a runners-up spot in the Premier League and the final of the Champions League Grant continues to face questions regarding his future at Stamford Bridge.

Future

However, he remains unconcerned by the speculation suggesting he is set for a summer departure and insists that he will continue to do his job until told otherwise.

"I don't see anything else," he said.

"I have said all the time, nothing has changed.

"I have always said, even when I first took the team, I have to focus on my job, not what other people say.

"What I must now do is concentrate on the game on Wednesday and not look to the past or the future."

One thing that worries me, and I'm pretty certain that this has been discussed before, is that JT will push himself forward, declaring himself fit when he is in fact nowhere near ready to return. If it's down to personalities, who's likely to win:

Avram: "are you sure you're fit to play JT?"

JT: "Sure I'm fit, no problem ... "

He wont be able to hide his shoulder injury in a good session of vigorous training.

DD's knee problem on the other hand may be just a niggle, and more easily hidden in training.
