Demba Ba Ranked Top Marksman

8 years ago

The statistics show that so far this season Demba Ba has put away a bigger proportion of the clear-cut chances that have come his way than any of his competing marksmen.

The excellent English Premier League Index shows that Demba Ba has converted a massive 45% of clear-cut chances that have come his way, followed by Suarez (43%), Van Persie (31%), Kone (23%) and Giroud (17%).

I know it is stating the obvious but surely the challenge has to be for Ba’s teammates to be creating more clear-cut chances rather than feeding Demba scraps, imagine then how many he would be scoring…

In terms of the betting on who will end up top Premier League goalscorer I think Demba could be a cracking bet, especially with Ben Arfa back and no African Cup of Nations to worry about.

The current betting (current number of goals in brackets) has;

Van Persie (11) 7/4Suarez (10) 4/1Defoe (9) 12/1Michu (12) 12/1Aguero (5) 14/1Ba (10) 14/1Tevez (7) 14/1….Cisse (2) 66/1 (full list here)

I hate to mention it as well but if Demba Ba did decide to leave in January then I doubt it would do his goalscoring much harm, as very unlikely he’d be going to a team that would create LESS chances for him
