Demba Ba accepts Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho faces a tough task keeping his strikers in form.

Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Ba have scored just five Premier League goals between them this season while Romelu Lukaku has eight on loan at Everton.

And Ba admits it is difficult for Mourinho to ensure all of his forwards are given a chance.

"We have a few strikers. Everyone wants and needs to play," said the Senegalese. "Potentially we can be top [at Christmas] as we are two points behind. We are going game by game."
