Summer signing Michy Batshuayi is yet to start a Premier League game since signing for Chelsea, and it’s all down to the form of Diego Costa.

Antonio Conte still believes the 23-year-old can make an impact, and has revealed what the young Belgian needs to do.

Conte said: “Every single forward is different in terms of their characteristics. Michy is different compared to Diego. First of all, he is younger.

“He can improve a lot, but you can learn a lot staying close to Diego, improving your experience and your skills. For sure having training sessions with great players will improve you.

“In this case I prefer not to put more pressure on the player because it’s not good. If I decide to put Michy in the starting XI, he is ready to play.

“It’s not important to talk and put more pressure on. He must do what he knows, what we are doing in the training sessions, and only this. If Michy is here it’s because he deserves to be here.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
