Michy Batshuayi is loving life as a Chelsea player after his Premier League debut
Michy Batshuayi is certainly loving life under Chelsea manager Antonio Conte after his debut at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
The Belgium international was a late substitute for the west London side after James Collins had cancelled out Eden Hazard’s penalty in their opening Premier League game of the season at Stamford Bridge.
And the 22-year-old centre-forward played his part in Diego Costa’s winner as he teed up his new strike partner to equalise in the 89th minute and seal a 2-1 victory over the east London outfit.
Batshuayi was Conte’s first signing of the summer as Chelsea manager after the Blues snapped up the highly-rated Belgian striker in a £33m deal from Ligue 1 outfit Marseille at the start of July.
And the Chelsea striker is already feeling very connected to his manager and team-mates if his latest Instagram post is any indication of how quickly the signing has settled at Stamford Bridge.
Batshuayi posted the above photo and wrote on his Instagram page:
“All love 💙 #KTBFFH”
Chelsea are in third place in the Premier League table behind leaders Manchester United and Liverpool after the opening game of the season.
