(Video) Former Chelsea winger provides 5th assist of the season in Istanbul derby

Gokhan Tore

Beşiktaş winger Gökhan Töre provided his fifth assist of the season in the 3-2 win over Fenerbahçe in the Istanbul derby at the Atatürk Olympic stadium.

Töre setup Mario Gomez with a well timed, accurate cross which the Germany international smashed into the back of the net with a flying header.


The Turkish international winger tormented Fenerbahçe down the wing throughout the game and posed a threat on the counter attack helping his side lift their derby curse.

Beşiktaş had not won a derby since 3 March 2013 until their latest victory over the Yellow Canaries.

Töre has had a great start to the season providing five assists and scoring once in six league games. The 23-year-old is already almost half way to reaching last years assist tally of 11 assists.

The 23-year-old joined the Chelsea academy as a youth and was a star of the FA Youth Cup winning side of 2010. The explosive winger parted ways with the Blues in 2011 to join HSV along with former Chelsea head of youth development Frank Arnesen before a brief stint at Rubin Kazan prior to his Beşiktaş move.
