Jamie Carragher has hailed the performance of Demba Ba and compared the striker with Didier Drogba after the forward helped Chelsea to a 3-1 victory over Norwich City yesterday afternoon.

With Fernando Torres injured and Samuel Eto'o left on the bench, Ba was given just his second start of the season under Mourinho and the striker assisted the Blues opening goal as he set up Brazilian youngster Oscar. 

And, with Ba causing problems to the Canaries defence throughout the afternoon, Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool ace Carragher was full of praise for the Senegal international. 

Speaking on Sky Sports, Carragher said: "Ba making runs in behind was a feature of the game and that is a big thing that he's brought to Chelsea.

"In the commentary Davie Provan said 'we almost gave him the man of the match' and I think that shows the impact that he made.

And, after Ba's impact, Carragher continued by comparing him to former-fans' favourite Didier Drogba. 

Carragher continued by saying: "His performance was Drogba-esque at times in the sense that he was really putting himself about and was quite brave."

"He almost scored in the first half and that's just something every fan needs now - a goal from a Chelsea striker."

Mourinho's side went on to win the game 3-1 thanks to two late goals from Eden Hazard and Willian, who scored his first goal in some style for the Stamford Bridge outfit.
