Ever since Ba arrived at Stamford Bridge from Newcastle United earlier this month, one of the duo has featured as a lone striker, with the other dropped to the bench by Benitez.
However, ahead of today's encounter against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, Benitez has hinted that he could be prepared to hand both a starting berth.
"If you play two strikers, you have to change the shape of the team," he said. "It depends on the movement of the strikers, the understanding of the game. Ba has played as a winger and a second striker, as has Torres.
"If Demba Ba is clever enough playing behind Torres, it's another option. We have these options."
During the club's last two matches, Ba has been preferred ahead of Torres.
