Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has thrown down the gauntlet to his strikers this week.

Mourinho says Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba will get their chance against Schalke and West Bromwich Albion.

"Samuel and Demba, they want to play, they are waiting for opportunities to play so when they have a chance, and they know they will have it now and against West Brom, they know they have in their hands the job to play up front. It's a good motivation for them and hopefully they can express on the pitch the way they work during the week."
