Senegalese Demba Ba became the leading English Premier League scorer this season with six as he bagged both Newcastle United goals in a 2-2 weekend draw at Reading.

Previously unhappy with the decision of manager Alan Pardew to use him as a wide striker, Ba has netted five times in three outings to overshadow team-mate and compatriot Papiss Demba Cisse.

Malian Jimmy Kebe and Ivorian Gervinho were also on target in the Premier League and giant Angolan Manucho, once on the books of Manchester United, struck twice for Valladolid in a six-goal Spanish La Liga romp.
