Jose Mourinho's return to Chelsea this summer left fans full of hope and promise for the future of the West London outfit, but the so called 'special one' isn't having the same effect on some of the players, according to Sky Sports

Demba Ba, who signed for the Blue's in January for £7 million from Newcastle United, has managed just two league appearances so far this season.

He did, however, provide one assist in the Blues' 3-1 victory over Norwich City, allowing Oscar to opening the scoring for Chelsea in the fourth minute.

The Senegalese international has already raised his grievances with not featuring regularly for the West London side, and today told Chelsea's official website:

"It’s difficult to be left on the sidelines but, as I’m a professional, and a good one, I always work hard and wait for moments like this."

Rumours that Ba faces a loan spell away from Chelsea in January have been rife, and unless he can impress the Portuguese boss soon, it seems his chances of climbing the pecking order are slim - especially with the likes of Torres and Eto'o on the sidelines.
