The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with Michy Batshuayi this season…
The Belgian, though still not the complete package, has really found his shooting boots this season, with a hat-trick against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup a highlight of his season so far.
Indeed, his exploits have left some fans questioning whether he should be given the nod over Alvaro Morata this weekend. Of course, Morata has made a decent start to life at Stamford Bridge, but Batshuayi has actually scored more goals in all competitions this season, and that definitely counts for something.
However, it doesn’t appear as though Chelsea fans are united in their support for Batshuayi quite yet, with a whopping 79% of fans of the opinion that Alvaro Morata should start against Stoke City on Saturday, with just 21% voting in favour of Batshuayi.
It’s unfortunate for Batshuayi, but it appears as though it’s going to take a lot more convincing until he has won over all Chelsea fans. Fortunately, with a number of competitions on the go this season, there will be enough opportunities for the Belgian to make an impact.
The pressure will be on Morata to up the pace against Stoke, but if the Spaniard struggles Batshuayi could get his chance in the Champions League.
