Michy Batshuayi continues to show Chelsea what they’re missing with stunning brace for Borussia Dortmund

The on-loan striker has been in lethal former since swapping the bench of Stamford Bridge for the starting spot in Dortmund's frontline

Chelsea were desperate for a free-scoring striker in January, with Alvaro Morata injured and basically terrible at the moment. 

So why on earth did they allow Michy Batshuayi to leave for the bright lights of Borussia Dortmund?

The Batman-obsessed Belgian has been in lethal form for BVB since joining on loan, netting twice in his debut against Koln and hitting the opener in their 2-0 win over Hamburg at the weekend.

And his awesome start continued tonight, as he notched two goals in Dortmund’s Europa League clash against Atalanta.

He even had a hand in the opener, playing in Lukasz Piszczek with a through ball who in-turn picked out another ex-Chelsea star Andre Schurrle.

But two goals early in the second-half for Atalanta meant BVB were behind, only for Batshuayi to equalise on the 65th minute with a lovely curling effort.

And then, with both sides seemingly opting for the 2-2 draw, the 24-year-old reacted to a defensive mix-up to score deep into stoppage time.

The happy-go-lucky forward is certainly loving life at his new club, having joined as part of the mental transfer merry-go-round in the closing days of the January window.

With Olivier Giroud joining Chelsea and Arsenal breaking the bank to secure Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Dortmund, Batshuayi was free to move to the German giants as his replacement.

And you’ve gotta say, he’s definitely doing the best out of three.
