Three reasons Batshuayi is the answer to Chelsea’s Costa dilemma
Sparks of Life
Batshuayi, when given a chance by Conte, has impressed. Scoring goals in late cameos and leading the line well when given longer appearances, the Belgian is no Mateja Kezman. While still raw, as you may expect from a 23-year-old who is playing his first Premier League season, Batshuayi is clearly ready to play for Chelsea.
The talent is unquestionably there and Batshuayi has the pace and power to be a real threat in the Premier League. While he may not have all the tricks of the trade like Diego Costa just yet, he has the all-round game to be the focal point of Chelsea’s 3-4-3.
