Michy Batshuayi has found it tough so far in his two seasons as a Chelsea striker.

The 24-year-old has had to play second fiddle to two different strikers in less than two years, as he has faced competition from Diego Costa and now Alvaro Morata.

Nevertheless, the self-acclaimed Batman has scored some important goals for Chelsea this year, starting from the title-winning goal against West Brom last season to a man of the match display against Watford that saw him bag a brace to give Chelsea the three points with the Blues coming from 2-1 down.

Anderlecht forward Aaron Leya Iseka, the player’s brother, has hailed Batshuayi for his impressive attitude in the face of adversity.

“He’s an example to me,” Leta Iseka told Belgian publication DH. “He’s gone through some tough moments. He’s often had to fight for his spot, and has won it. He knows how to get out of tough spots, he’s a warrior.

“When it doesn’t go well for him, he digs deep to find everything he can. Now, he’s very strong, he doesn’t hide and isn’t scared of facing his responsibilities.”
