Despite his limited chances for Chelsea last season, Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi had a goal per minute ratio which was the best in Chelsea and among the best in the Premier League.
Chelsea legend Pat Nevin revealed Batshuayi’s goals per minute played ratio was even better than that of Harry Kane, who was the league’s top scorer last season.
“In fact, he has great difficulty stopping scoring when he gets the chances. Look at the numbers and you see what he is all about. His goals per minutes played ratio even last season was easily the best at the club and among the best in the league,” Nevin wrote on Chelsea’s official website.
“Actually, at a goal for every 79 minutes he was on the field, he was well ahead of even Harry Kane last season! His current run is even more impressive and suggests very good things lie ahead.
“Michy was the man on the spot to win the league for us at West Brom last season when he had just come on as sub. Taking all games other than the FA Cup final, when he only got two minutes on the field, he then went on a run of seven goals in five appearances and none of them were full 90-minute stints. The goals run was: WBA (1), Watford (1), Sunderland (2), Arsenal (2) and Bayern Munich (1). That worked out at roughly a goal every 41 minutes on the field.”
