Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi was in action for Belgium against England on Thursday night and it serve as a wake up call for some supporters that he should be at the club next season.
Batshuayi made the line-up against the Three Lions in strong tie that ended 1-0 in the Red Devils’ favour, they ensured they will be playing Japan in the last 16 of the World Cup tournament, instead of playing Colombia.
Although, the recently loaned to Borussia Dortmund striker didn’t net a goal but did position himself with some nice touches and his botched celebration that saw him hit his own face with a ball he kicked against the frame of the goal after Adnan Januzaj had scored.
The €40m-rated Belgian netted nine goals in 14 appearances for Dortmund in the second half of the last season and his performances on Thursday night showed that he has a role to play at Stamford Bridge next season.
After the match, Chelsea fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Michy’s performance and what his long-term future would mean for the club next season. And while a fan said “Batshuayi is a better striker than Morata @ChelseaFC sell Morata!!!, there was another who said the striker has to be Chelseas no.9 next season.”
Here are some of the selected tweets on Twitter:
The Borussia Dortmund loan did Michy Batshuayi the world of good, he's a completely different footballer now. A whole new beast! Keep him @ChelseaFC.

Batshuayi is so humble and hilarious, he acknowledges his mistake and is happy to be part of the joke! Hope he stays at Chelsea, he’s so great on his day!

Batshuayi looks to have MASSIVELY improved his game. More of a presence. More hustling in and around the box. That loan spell has done him wonders. Great decision from Antonio Conte. Looked like a walking corpse last season. #CFC
