Chelsea fans react on Twitter to PSG win: Career-saver… he was Drogba!

Chelsea did precisely what they needed to do in order to reach the final four of the Champions League - defeat PSG 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

In the most unlikely of circumstances, it was maligned striker Demba Ba who fired Chelsea into the Champions League semifinal having scored the crucial second goal in the club's dismantling of Paris Saint Germain in the quarterfinal stage.

Ba, along with Fernando Torres, has found it tough to hold down the lone striking role at Stamford Bridge, with manager Jose Mourinho electing to prefer a rotation policy or not fielding a striker at all, with the worst-kept Blues secret being that the club will be active in the summer transfer market as they look for an elite-level goal-scorer.

Ba perhaps scored the most lucrative goal of Chelsea's season on Tuesday evening, though.

He may have only scored five goals prior to his cameo role last night, but his sixth proved to be the most significant of the lot. He know has three goals from 144 minutes of combined Champions League football this season - an exceptional statistic.

Mourinho even drew comparisons to legendary hitman Didier Drogba when giving his post-match offering to Chelsea TV: "His contribution was massive in the game. After [the goal] he was fantastic. Fantastic central defender. He reminded me a bit of Didier in the old times when we needed him [in defence] in the last minutes."
