Michy Batshuayi has played just 78 minutes of Premier League football this season due to the outstanding form of Diego Costa who is the Premier League’s leading goalscorer.
Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes Batshuayi would be a good signing for Chelsea in the end and it’s wrong to compare the Belgian with Diego Costa because only few strikers can compete with Costa.
“(Batshuayi) certainly needs a chance to play in our first team at match pace for 90 minutes, to show everyone why we spent the money on him and why we believe in his talent,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.
“Having watched him for a season or two before he arrived, I am an unashamed fan of the Belgian but it is so hard to break in ahead of Diego and it is difficult sometimes not to try too hard when you get a fleeting opportunity.
“Batshuayi can and will be a class act in the end but the temptation is always to compare him with Diego and that is tough.
“Try comparing any striker with Diego Costa right now and few are going to shine particularly brightly.”
