Chelsea welcome back Demba Ba

Chelsea striker Demba BaDemba Ba looks set to replace Fernando Torres in the starting line up when Chelsea take on Swansea City on Sunday.

Ba is ineligible for European competition and after sitting out Thursday night’s win in Basle looks set to replace Torres, who started the Europa League semi-final first leg.

Gary Cahill was an unused substitute in the win in Switzerland and could start in defence following his six-week absence with a knee injury, with Oriol Romeu (knee) the only definite absentee.

Interim boss Rafa Benitez looks sure to tinker with his squad as the Blues push for a top four finish and has a number of options ahead of the clash.

Meanwhile, Eden Hazard is in line to face the Swans again after being sent off for kicking a ball boy during February’s Capital One Cup semi-final between the teams.
