Fernando Torres and Demba Ba
Torres and Ba are Chelsea's only fully-fit forwards available to Mourinho.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has placed trust in Demba Ba, Samuel Eto'o and Fernando Torres to lead the club to silverware this season after confirming no additional strikers will be signed in the January transfer window.

Reports earlier in the week had suggested club representatives had met with the agent of FC Porto striker Jackson Martinez but Mourinho has been quick to dismiss the link.

And the Portuguese boss will refrain from adding strikers to his artillery in the New Year, despite the Chelsea trio having scored just three league goals between them this season.

"It's not true what I read a couple of days ago, that the agent [of Martinez] was in London meeting with me or with Chelsea directors," Mourinho confirmed.

"It's not true at all. In the January market we're not going to buy any striker, so we will go through to the end of the season with Fernando, Samuel and Demba. Nobody goes in. Nobody goes out."

Chelsea head into the meeting with Southampton without Eto'o after the Cameroon forward suffered a thigh injury in the defeat to FC Basel in the Champions League which could rule him out of the club's festive schedule.

The Blues' problems in front of goal have been accentuated by Romelu Lukaku's success while on loan at Everton, with the Belgian having netted seven league goals in as many starts for the club.

Lukaku left the club on deadline day of the summer transfer window despite being promised a regularly place in the Chelsea first team this season, but Mourinho has urged the 20 year old to explain the real reason why he joined Everton.

"Romelu likes to speak," he added. "He's a young boy who likes to speak. But the only thing he didn't say is why he went to Everton on loan.

"That's the only thing he never says. And my last contact with him was to tell him exactly that. Why do you never say why you are not here?

"So it's something he should [talk about] because he likes to speak. It's something he should say, the reason why he's not with Chelsea and is in Everton."
