Demba Ba has so far played second fiddle to Romelu Lukaku in terms of chances on tour, but the man signed by Chelsea from Newcastle in January will be given his chance to impress in the final game of the Far East leg of Chelsea’s pre-season tour in Jakarta on Wednesday.
Mourinho said: “The next match Demba will start.
“The team who start the game has more time to warm up and prepare, so they have better conditions for a good individual performance.
“Lukaku started these two matches. Demba will start in Jakarta.”
