The Senegal international has seen limited opportunities in this year's campaign under the reign of Blues boss Jose Mourinho, but, nevertheless, responded when he was called upon.
He came off the bench on the 66th minute to replace Frank Lampard, but it wasn't until the 87th minute when he was able to find the back of the net from close range to make the score-line 3-3 on aggregate, with the west Londoners having the advantage of an away goal in the first-leg.
The "Special One" is not convinced with the way his attacking men have performed this season, but Ba thinks otherwise and hinted on a possible exit, should the Portuguese mentor remain unsatisfied.
"Maybe he [Mourinho] doesn't have strikers to his liking, but I know that we have three great strikers," Ba told the Daily Telegraph.
"And I think that a lot of clubs would like to have them."
In any case, the Senegal international feels ecstatic to have helped Chelsea come out victorious.
"I'm happy, I'm happy to have liberated us," he added.
"I haven't been given my chance much this season and I've taken it."
"It's the first time I've wished PSG to lose and it's me who scores the goal, luckily for Chelsea."
