Michy Batshuayi has sent a one word message in response to Jeffrey Schlupp’s latest Instagram post.
The Chelsea striker – who spent the second half of last season on loan at Crystal Palace – was replying to his former teammate’s upload showing himself working out in Dubai ahead of the Eagles’ Premier League game against Newcastle on Saturday, their first game back following the winter break.
Batshuayi netted five goals in nine Premier League starts under Roy Hodgson last term, which would be enough to place him as the south Londoners’ second-top scorer this season, one behind six-goal Jordan Ayew – Crystal Palace have scored the fewest goals in the Premier League this campaign with only 23 to their name.
However, since returning to Stamford Bridge, he has failed to make a single start in the Premier League or the Champions League, with just two starts each in the Carabao Cup and FA Cup to his name – the Belgian has still netted a respectable six goals.
