Michy Batshuayi is the second choice striker for Chelsea and the Belgium international has had quite a good start to the season with five goals to his credit so far this season.

With Alvaro Morata out injured, many are unsure if Conte will start the 24-year-old against Crystal Palace on Saturday at Selhurst Park.

Conte opted to bring in Willian after Morata got injured in the defeat to Manchester City, a move that was criticised by many.

And Conte has revealed that Batshuayi could start on Saturday.

He said in his press conference: “If you remember Batshuayi started to play against Burnley, the first game of this season. He played in Champions League against Qarabag. He played in Carabao Cup. He is in contention for the game tomorrow.”
