Galatasaray are first, Besiktas are second and Fenerbahce are third.

Valentin Rosier was the hero for Besiktas on Sunday scoring the winning goal against Konyaspor despite being down to 10 men after Fabrice N’Sakala was sent off.

The Black Eagles managed to snap a two-game winless streak in the process.

Everton loanee Cenk Tosun made the matchday squad but sat the game out as he continues to work towards full match fitness.

Tosun has been registered and is expected to feature for the Black Eagles over the next few weeks.

The Black-Whites will face Konyaspor again on Thursday in the Turkish Cup.

Besiktas will then take on Genclerbirligi in the Super Lig on Monday.
