Ba available for Chelsea with mask in tow

Demba Ba is likely to be back in action for Chelsea this weekend after recovering from a broken nose.

The Senegalese striker sustained the injury in the 3-2 loss to former club Newcastle United last weekend and should be available to take on Wigan Athletic on Saturday after having a facemask fitted.

Ba flew to Milan with the Blues club doctor this week and will play in the protective mask until his nose has fully healed.

Since arriving from Newcastle in January, Ba has scored three goals in nine matches in all competitions.
