Chelsea expect Demba Ba to be fit for their clash with Wigan Athletic.

The Daily Mail says Ba is expected to be fit for Chelsea's clash with Wigan on Saturday after returning from Italy with a special face mask fitted.

Ba flew to Milan to have the face mask fitted after Fabricio Coloccini broke his nose by kicking him in the face last weekend.

He trained on Thursday with the mask and will probably be selected on the bench with Rafael Benitez likely to start Fernando Torres.
