Crystal Palace fans knew when they signed Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea on transfer deadline day that not only were they getting a sharp striker, but they were also getting a Twitter funny man. He’s yet to disappoint too, as he took to Twitter after the 1-1 draw with West Ham to laud the atmosphere at Selhurst Park, to the fan’s delight.

The Belgian striker failed to deliver the goal that the fans were craving as they fell to a 1- 1 draw.. However, that doesn’t mean that hope is lost for the striker. He will still be acclimatising to the Roy Hodgson way of playing football and when he’s up to speed with the way the Eagles play and gets a better link up with the likes of Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend then he’ll be a class addition.
The Eagles cannot wait to see their new import score, and if he can find a winner in front of them at some point then they’ll be desperate to prove him right and show that the Selhurst Park atmosphere is as electric as he’s said it is. However, with their next Premier League home game coming against Manchester United, they may have to wait until March for that to happen.

Can’t wait for you to score. Selhurst will be even more crazy

The Eagles love the idea of Batshuayi scoring in front of their home support and will be eager for it to happen sooner rather than later.
