Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi, on loan at Borussia Dortmund, was back in amongst the goals on Sunday, netting a last-minute injury time winner against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.
The Belgian forward had gone five games without a goal after his initial purple patch at the German club, but came off the bench to score twice in 28 minutes and boost Dortmund’s hopes of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League with a 3-2 win.
The 23-year-old has now scored seven times in nine matches since moving from the Blues on loan in January and Chelsea supporters are beginning to miss his presence at Stamford Bridge.
In contrast, Alvaro Morata hasn’t scored a single goal in 2018 so far and new signing Olivier Giroud has netted just once since joining from Arsenal.
Was it a mistake to let Batshuayi leave mid-season with Morata out of form? Should he still be at the club instead of Giroud?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
While Batshuayi can't stop scoring for Dortmund, our record-breaking transfer hasn't scored a single goal in 2018 and just keeps getting booked! #CFC

We’d be buying Batshuayi in the summer for £60m. Don’t let this one go, Chelsea. #CFC

Kenedy got two goals against Southampton. Batshuayi on fire for Dortmund, 2 goals to win the game. We have Morata. Alvaro fucking Morata. Looool they need bleach every area of the pitch he touches.

As a Chelsea Fan I have to say the goals could not happen to a better person than the Batsman!!It hurts though but he deserves everything!!Hopefully he comes back from loan and get the chances that all the other strikers get at Chelsea!
