Jose Mourinho hints at Demba Ba chance

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho reveals that Demba Ba will get his chance in the team in the next few weeks following an injury to Fernando Torres.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that Demba Ba will get more chances to play in the upcoming weeks due to an injury to Fernando Torres.

Torres suffered knee ligament damage after coming off the bench during Chelsea's 3-1 win over Manchester United this afternoon, and Mourinho expects the Spaniard to be sidelined for "weeks".

Samuel Eto'o had earlier scored a hat-trick for the Blues, and Mourinho has hinted that he would rotate the Cameroonian with Ba in the next few matches.

"It's time for Demba. It's a pity because Nando is in a good moment, but it's time for Demba," PA quotes Mourinho as saying.

"Demba had a fantastic week, [it was] very difficult for me to leave him out of selection because he worked very, very well. Next matches is for Demba or Samuel. Let's go."

Chelsea, who moved to within two points of leaders Arsenal with the win, will face Stoke City in the FA Cup next Sunday.
