Chelsea striker Demba Ba is eager for the team to avoid a second straight defeat when they return to Premier League action this weekend.

The Blues drew with West Bromwich Albion last time out in the league before they were beaten by Manchester City in the FA Cup fifth round last weekend.

Ahead of Saturday's home meeting with Everton, Ba is looking for a winning response from Chelsea as they look to remain at the top of the table.

"We lost the last game in the FA Cup and we don't want to lose two in a row. That would be bad," he told Chelsea's official website.

"We are just going to do everything on Saturday because it's important to get back to winning ways, it's important for the title race and it's important for our confidence."
