Chelsea boss Benitez confident Ba okay for FA Cup semi

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez is confident Demba Ba will be fit for their FA Cup semifinal against Manchester City.

Ba did not take part in full training on Tuesday and is cup-tied on Thursday for the Europa League, having represented Newcastle earlier in the competition, but should be fit to be considered for Wembley.

Benitez said: "Demba Ba did not train today, just as a precaution.

"It's not too serious. He will not go to Moscow. Hopefully he can train here and be okay for the weekend."
