Demba Ba favourite to outscore Torres at Chelsea
Following the arrival of Demba Ba at Stamford Bridge Ladbrokes are offering odds of 4/6 that the Senegalese scores more Chelsea goals than teammate Fernando Torres between now and the end of the season.
Ba arrives in west London having scored 13 league goals for Newcastle in the first half of the season, while Torres has scored 14 for Chelsea this campaign, although only seven have come in the Premier League.
Ladbrokes are also offering betting on whether Ba will score more or less goals than former teammate Papiss Cisse. Cisse is quoted at odds of 11/5, with Ba at 1/2 to outshine his fellow countryman and 6/1 offered about them scoring the same number of goals.
It is 5/1 that Ba scores between 0 and 4 Premier League goals for The Blues this season, 5/4 that he nets 5-7, 5/4 that he scores 8-11 and 8/1 that he scores 12 or more in the remaining games of this season.
All markets refer to Premier League goals scored from 12th January until the end of the season.
“It feels good to be here, I'm very happy and very proud,” the 27-year-old told Chelsea’s official website.
“It was important for me, and for Newcastle, to get my future sorted and now we can move on.
“When the club who won the Champions League wants you, the decision is very easy. This club is massive and that's something that helped the decision a lot. It was not a hard one.”
