Chelsea fans aren’t thrilled with their side at the moment, and things haven’t been brilliant this season – but selling Diego Costa to Atletico Madrid has certainly been a terrible decision, with Alvaro Morata not firing as much as the club would have liked – not to mention struggling with injury.
While that was far from ideal for the Blues, there was light at the end of the tunnel with Michy Batshuayi, who despite being someone Antonio Conte clearly didn’t fancy as a player, managed to score pretty much whenever he was handed a chance from the Italian.
However, despite that, Conte decided to send him out on loan in January as part of the deal to take Olivier Giroud to Chelsea and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal – and it has certainly paid off.
For BVB that is, who have seen the Batsman take to life at the club like a duck to water, and become loved by the fans and the other players – and bang in the goals not only in the Bundesliga but also the Europa League – while Morata and Giroud are sitting on the bench for the majority of the time and struggling to net goals for the rest of it.
All in all, it’s a terrible time for Chelsea, while Batsman is flying and the fans are fuming – while the rest of Twitter find it hilarious.

Batshuayi surely gotta get his opportunity at Chelsea next season

Imagine thinking Llorente would be a better option off the bench than Batshuayi. How can you support this mans fuckery ?

Goals this season:
Michy Batshuayi: 20 goals
Alvaro Morata: 12 goals
But Morata is very smart and intelligent, never forget that.

While Batshuayi is banging now is easy to say Morata is the flop of the season while being benched by Giroud.

Michy Batshuayi can’t stop scoring! Being a striker is all about confidence! Chelsea clearly do not instil that into there strikers.

Why did Chelsea loan Batshuayi just to buy Giroud though? I know I have benefit of hindsight now but it doesn’t really make sense thinking about it.

Dortmung selling a 28 yo Aubemayang and getting Batshuayi for a lower price was the the best deal of the winter. Fair play to Arsenal and Chelsea

Since Batshuayi left, the total number of goals Chelsea strikers manage to score is 1. He scored more goals(2) than Morata and Giroud combined today. #football
