Demba Ba has rejected claims that he's a Chelsea legend after his winning goal against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night sent the Blues to the semi-final of the Champions League. 

Jose Mourinho's side were heading out of Europe's elite competition until the forward scrambled home a dramatic late winner at Stamford Bridge. 

And, after the game, Blues manager Jose Mourinho compared Ba to Chelsea legend Didier Drogba. However Ba - despite admitting the goal was a great moment - played down comparisons with Drogba. 

Speaking to reporters, the Chelsea forward said: "My goal was a very great moment for the fans, for the club, for everybody - but it takes more than that to become a legend."

Chelsea and Ba will now look ahead to Friday's Champions League semi-final draw. The Blues have been joined by the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid in the last four of the competition. 

Chelsea will also be hoping to continue their Premier League title charge this weekend, as they take on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday. 

Ba will be hoping to play a part this weekend as he looks to take his European form into the Premier League.
