Talking after today’s vital win over Aston Villa, Demba Ba had this to say when asked about his Senegalese strike partner.

“It was a big day for him and I am very happy for him. When you come to a new team it is very hard sometimes to settle in. I think he is a good lad, so he will settle in okay.

It was not so important that I scored. I was very happy that we got the win today and it doesn’t matter if I score today or somebody else. I am happy, but it was not the most important thing”.

You know what, I’ve got a good feeling about these two. Great movement and they both clearly know where the back of the net is.

Show me a better front pair than these two potentially can be? I think I’m going for a lie down!
