Jose Mourinho has rewarded Demba Ba for his decisive goal in the Champions League in midweek by selecting him ahead of Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto'o for the clash against Swansea.

Ba came off the substitutes' bench to score the crucial second goal in the 2-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain to help Chelsea overturn a 3-1 deficit and reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.

With Liverpool beating Manchester City at Anfield to go five points clear at the top of the table, Chelsea will be looking to go five points ahead of third-placed City and keep up with Liverpool.

Swansea starting XI: Vorm, Rangel, Chico, Williams, Davies, Britton, Shelvey, Dyer, Hernandez, Routledge, Bony.

Substitutes: Tremmel, Amat, Taylor, Fulton, de Guzman, Emnes, Ngog.

Chelsea starting XI: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Matic, Salah, Willian, Schurrle, Ba.

Substitutes: Schwarzer, Cole, David Luiz, Mikel, Oscar, Torres, Eto'o.
