Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has found first-team opportunities limited since he moved to the Premier League from Marseille in the summer, but the Belgian forward has become a fans’ favourite for his antics on social media, going above and beyond the standard tweets we read from footballers.
The entertaining forward was limited to a short cameo in the Blues’ drubbing of Manchester United yesterday but was thrilled with the performance from his team-mates and hailed N’Golo Kante, after his fellow summer signing scored his first goal in Chelsea colours.
Happy to have a couple minutes today, but most important congrats to all the team, what a performance !! ???????????? and @nglkante scored ????❤ ahahah

The win moves Chelsea up to fourth in the Premier League table and Antonio Conte’s side currently sit one point below Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City, setting up what could be one of the most competitive title battles in the history of the division.
Chelsea will be confident following their recent performances but they now head into a potentially tricky run of fixtures, facing London rivals West Ham United in the EFL Cup before Premier League meetings with Southampton and Everton.
Batshuayi later took to Twitter again as he jokingly suggested a fight would occur with team-mate David Luiz, ahead of last night’s Le Classique in Ligue 1 that saw the duo’s former clubs Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille play out a goalless draw.
