Why Michy Batshuayi Could Turn Into A Beast For Chelsea This Season

Antonio Conte has proven time and again that he is one of the smartest managers in world football, as he helped Chelsea to their second league title in three years, after making a few decent signings last season.

He is making similar additions to the squad this season, and slightly high profile ones at that, as he has already added the likes of Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger to his lineup. He will not have the likes of Diego Costa and John Terry to call upon next season but Conte is making sure that he has enough options for him to be able to orchestrate another title attack next season.

Spanish star Alvaro Morata is expected to lead the attack for Chelsea next season but the former Real Madrid man will be playing in England for the first time and there is every chance that he will not be able to replicate what Costa did last season at the Bridge. This is what makes one Michy Batshuayi an important player in the squad this season.

Linked with an exit a month ago, the Belgian international moved to Chelsea last summer in a €38m deal, but picked up just 5 goals in 20 league appearances. He was not able to deliver for Conte.

Though it initially looked like Conte will get rid of him after just a year, it is now clear that Batshuayi has a serious role in the squad this season. At just 23, the striker has now played more than 150 games in top flight leagues across Europe, to add to his 9 international appearances to date.

Though he is not as established as the 24-year old Morata, Batshuayi is one of the most exciting young strikers at the moment. Capable of finding the back of the net on a regular basis from different angles and ranges, Batshuayi is not an old fashioned centre-forward who plays on the shoulder of the last man.

He is more of a player who is mobile and loves to pick up the ball facing the goal, as he loves to push the opponents back and make space for his team mates. He has to work on his aerial ability but the few glimpses the English fans got of him last season promise much more than just 5 goals.

He did struggle a bit when leading the side’s attack but he has all the attributes to make him a success in the Premier League. With Morata still settling in, he has a great chance to prove himself and get ahead of the former Real Madrid man in the pecking order for Chelsea. Do you think Batshuayi can turn into a game changer for the Blues?

Maybe, this is Batshuayi’s breakthrough season that we have all been expecting to happen!
