Chelsea new boy Ba intent on being number one

Demba Ba insists he has arrived at Chelsea with plans to become the number one striker.

The Senegal international scored two goals on debut for the Blues following his £7million move from Newcastle United in the FA Cup victory over Southampton on the weekend and is now eyeing a regular starting berth for the European champions.

He also spoke of how much former Chelsea star Didier Drogba has helped inspire him.

"Every time I arrive at a club, it's always as the second attacker. But every time, through hard work, I impose myself," he told Le Parisien.

"We're two different players but I appreciate Didier enormously. It's difficult to compare oneself to him in view of how much he achieved at Chelsea.

"He has greatly inspired me throughout my career but I know my own qualities."
