Photo: Michy Batshuayi sends perfect message to Chelsea fans after 4-0 win on Instagram
The Chelsea summer signing was pretty pleased with his afternoon's work
Michy Batshuayi hailed a perfect afternoon for the Chelsea striker after he scored and made an assist in their 4-0 win against Brentford in the FA Cup.
The Belgium international made a rare start for the west London side after finding it difficult to break into Conte’s first-choice Premier League team despite his £34m move to Chelsea from Ligue 1 side Lille in the summer transfer window.
Batshuayi seized his chance to impress the Chelsea manager and the Stamford Bridge supporters, though, as he teed up Pedro Rodriguez for the west London side’s second goal after Willian had made the breakthrough earlier in the first half.
Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic extended Chelsea’s lead before Batshuayi completed the rout from the penalty spot to secure the west London side’s place in the FA Cup fifth-round draw.
Batshuayi took to Instagram to post the above photo and he wrote the following caption: “Assist 🎁 Goal ⚽ Clean sheet ✋ Celebration 🔥 Perfect day at the office 😊😊 thanks for all the messages !! On to the next round 🔵 @ChelseaFC @kurtzouma”
The summer signing has now scored five goals in 19 appearances in all competitions since his move to Stamford Bridge.
