Manchester United legend Gary Neville can't understand why Demba Ba is being ignored by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

Writing in his weekly column for EA sports, the former Premier League winner said he was baffled by Mourinho's reluctance to play the Senegalese striker.

He wrote: "The mystery for me with Chelsea is what has happened to Demba Ba? Does Mourinho not want to use him or give him a chance?"

The comments from Neville come in a week where Mourinho publicly criticised his striking options saying he had "no real strikers."
