Michy Batshuayi reveals Chelsea frustration following record-breaking start with Borussia Dortmund

The Belgian striker is showing the Blues what they're missing with his awesome start to life in Dortmund

Michy Batshuayi is showing Chelsea exactly what they’re missing at the moment with his awesome start to life at Borussia Dortmund.

The Belgian striker has netted a stunning five goals in his opening three matches for BVB since his arrival in January, with two on his debut against Koln and then the opener in their 2-0 win over Hamburg last weekend.

He was also the hero of the night in their Europa League clash with Atalanta on Thursday, scoring twice – including a last-minute winner – in the 3-2 win.

In doing so, he’s become the first player in the club’s history to score five times in their opening three appearances.

Not bad for a guy who struggled to get a game at Chelsea, eh?

And in an interview with Sporza, Batshuayi has admitted that his confidence has returned following his dreadful spell with the Blues.

He said: “It wasn’t always easy at Chelsea, I’m now playing with a lot of confidence.

“Sitting on the bench, score a goal and then back to the bench is quite difficult to deal with for an attacker.”

There’s already rumours that Batshuayi will want to turn his loan move into a permanent deal, with Chelsea seemingly far from his thoughts at the moment.

When asked if the Blues would be monitoring his progress in Germany, Batshuayi said: “I don’t know if Conte was watching my game.

“They are focusing on the Premier League and have an important Champions League tie next week. I hope it turns out well for them.”
