Chelsea fans want Michy Batshuayi to start against Huddersfield

Chelsea face Huddersfield Town in the Premier League at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday night without striker Alvaro Morata, and Blues fans have demanded that Michy Batshuayi starts against the Terriers.

The west London outfit will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing performance in the 1-0 defeat against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday when they travel to Yorkshire, but they will be without their top goalscorer Morata.

Antonio Conte confirmed on Monday that the Spaniard would miss the trip north because of fatigue and injury, leaving the Italian with a choice of playing Eden Hazard in a false nine position or by handing Batshuayi a rare start.

Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on the Belgium international via social media, and while one said “if Batshuayi doesn’t start tonight there’s something definitely wrong with Conte”, another urged their manager to “let the man do his job” by starting him and hopefully see him score some goals.
