Michy Batshuayi seems to be the man to call upon when the chips are down. He doesn’t always get the job done, but he looks a different player whenever he comes on as a substitute.
It all started when his dying minute goal gave Chelsea the league against West Brom last season. Against Atletico Madrid, the Batman was there yet again to score a late winner for the Blues, and today with Chelsea losing 2-1, Batshuayi came off the bench to score a brace against Watford.
He wrote on Twitter: “Calling for Batsman? I got yall”
The win relieves some pressure off Chelsea, having lost back-to-back Premier League games to Manchester City and Crystal Palace, and Conte will be delighted with his side’s response to the game, with the Blues now fourth on the table.
