Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi hasn’t played as much as he would have wanted since his move from Marseille last summer but he became an unexpected hero on Friday as Chelsea defeated West Brom 1-0 at The Hawthorns to win the Premier League.
Batshuayi had only been on the pitch for six minutes when he slid low to convert Cesar Azpilicueta’s cutback and secure the three points that were required for us to be champions.
“It’s the stuff of dreams,” said a very happy Batshuayi.
“We have had a fantastic season, we have worked really hard and everyone is so happy. Above all, we are the champions. It was a chance to reach our objective as soon as possible and we are all delighted we did it.
“I am very happy to have helped the team at a big moment,’ the 23-year-old added.
“Of course it’s been a very difficult season for me personally, but I knew it wouldn’t be easy because this is a great club with great players. I have worked very hard and I have now made a big contribution which is a dream.
“Even if I haven’t played much I have learned a lot during the week in training, and whenever I get minutes I give my maximum.”
