Arslan – 'Besiktas will win league & Demba Ba will be goal king'

Beşiktaş midfielder Toglay Arslan believes his side will win the league and that Demba Ba will finish the season as goal king.

“Team spirit is high, just look at Demba Ba, one of our biggest stars started on the bench against Trabzonspor but he did not look dispondant once and when he came on he scored a minute after,” Arslan told Fanatik.

“God willing we will win the league and Ba will be goal king, it would be an incredible achievement.”

Ba scored the opening goal in the 2-0 win against Trabzonspor at the Hüseyin Avni Aker stadium on the weekend a minute after replacing Daniel Opare.

Ba currently has 17 league goals this season – an all time career record.

Bursaspor striker Fernandao currently has one more league goal than the Senegalese international.

Ba has a total of 26 goals and seven assists in all seasons since joining Beşiktaş from Chelsea in the summer.

Beşiktaş moved into first place following the win over Trabzonspor. The Black Sea Storm lost their first home game since the turn of the year ending their best home winning streak since 2012.
