Ba Trumpets Chelsea Creativity

Demba Ba is confident his new Chelsea teammates will continue to provide him with ample opportunities to hit the back of the net.

The Senegalese hitman, who joined the Blues from Newcastle for £7.5million last week, bagged a brace on debut in a 5-1 FA Cup third round demolition of Southampton at the weekend.

Ba told his club's official website: "I just want to enjoy my football, it's not about pressure, it's about playing a game I like, and that's what I'm doing.

"It makes football look easy, I just try to run in behind and create space for the midfielders because I know when they have space they will be dangerous.

"When you have players like this, that understand football perfectly, you just have to run and the ball will come into your feet, and that's what I tried to do.

"I'm very pleased, I saw it when I played against them, but they are world-class players and when you play with them it's completely different. They create spaces, provide good passes and they are very intelligent in their game."
