Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi set an English record after he scored in Chelsea’s 2-1 FA Cup victory over Hull City on Saturday.

The Belgian striker, alongside Manchester City duo Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, are the only players to score in all of the Premier League, the Champions League, the FA Cup and the League Cup this season.

With Tammy Abraham currently out injured, Batshuayi will be expected to lead the line when Chelsea visit Leicester City.

Asked if Batshuayi is ready to step up, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said: “I don’t want to get into Michy’s game. It is not time to do that.

“I said yesterday, he trains as I want him to train and that’s not easy when you are not playing as much as you want to do but you have to go the extra mile to show that you deserve to play.

“When you get them opportunities then you have to, wherever they are, show it.

“Today, I am happy with Michy. I am happy. Not because of just his goal. His goal was slightly fortunate but I like that. That’s how goal scorers should score those kind of goals but I just want him to keep delivering when he is training and when the opportunities come.

“We are at that level of football which is quite demanding and everyone judges strikers on goals and I think Michy has that in him. So I want to see a bit more.”
