Michy Batshuayi scored twice and assisted as well during Chelsea U23 game against Liverpool yesterday in the Premier League 2.
The Belgian did not make it into the matchday squad for the first two league games of the season, so Lampard sent him to work on match fitness in the development squad.
Chelsea boss was at the game personally to see the great performance by Michy. Let’s hope 2 goals will be enough to impress.
Batshuayi himself shows good spirit, professionalism and willingness to fight as he posted an encouraging message on Twitter after the game.
Some fans on social have had a discussion on why the striker can not make it at Chelsea for so long:
Put jokes aside and play football, you got talent in you but you aren’t serious, believe in yourself!! I want 20+goals this season Michyyyyyy Batshuayiiiiiii,

You are very right my dear….He doesn’t show any seriousness when he’s at it;always playing around for a few likes…Drogba at your position was all hungry to lie on a defender and score a bullet as well as stretch for an impossible tap-in….get serious mate!!!

But most of the Blues fans are completely supportive:
He’s been a journey man and has a hard time finding his place. Maybe the time is now for the right opportunity. Whatever happens, let’s just hope he makes the most it and proves to lampard he was the choice that Chelsea should have made and make. Love his positive attitude.
