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.”
