The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been very surprised by their side’s lack of goals this season. The Blues have really struggled to score over the last few weeks, with Alvaro Morata struggling for form and Olivier Giroud yet to find his feet at Stamford Bridge.
There is clearly a lot of room for improvement, and a new forward will certainly be under consideration for Antonio Conte this summer, but until then, the Chelsea fans in the pub have been left with a feeling of regret.
After all, whilst the forwards currently at Stamford Bridge are struggling, another attacker that is still on Chelsea’s books is enjoying the form of his life – Michy Batshuayi.
The Belgian was sent off on loan in January following the arrival of Olivier Giroud, and he appears to be doing all he can to prove to the Blues that it was a mistake.
Though he has suffered a blip in recent weeks, he’s made a very stellar start to his time in Germany, having already bagged five league goals.
Two of those came last night, with the Belgian forward saving Borussia Dortmund with two goals in the second-half.
Though the Transfer Tavern was full of Chelsea fans celebrating their side’s win against Crystal Palace on Saturday, it’s fair to say that nobody missed what Batshuayi did on Sunday. Indeed, the Chelsea fans over on Twitter have been talking about his display all day today – with all supporters clearly very impressed.
Take a look below to see what they’ve been saying…
we want you back @ChelseaFC

We’d be buying Batshuayi in the summer for £60m. Don’t let this one go, Chelsea. #CFC

What an insane loan #Batshuayi is having in #Dortmund. Didn't start due to a dip in form, then comes on to score 2 goals, one of which is a 94th minute winner to make it 3-2 against Frankfurt #bundesliga #CFC #LoanWatch

Good to see Michy #Batshuayi end his mini drought against Eintracht Frankfurt in emphatic fashion. Since he’s joined Borussia Dortmund, he has more or less saved their season.#CFC #BVB #Bundesliga #PL #BVBSGE
