Chelsea fans urge Conte to put faith in Batshuayi

Chelsea supporters have called for manager Antonio Conte to play Michy Batshuayi more often.

The 23-year-old has failed to make his mark in the first team, despite arriving at the club from Marseille last summer in a deal thought to be worth around £33m.

On only 17 occasions as he graced the pitch in the Premier League, but has only been on the field for 113 minutes in total.

The forward has made three appearances in the FA Cup and started three EFL Cup games, but even though he has netted five goals in his limited outings, Conte does not seem to favour him.

Diego Costa has scored 17 Premier League goals this season, but some fans are growing frustrated with the striker, who has not found the back of the net since March 6.

In response to the club’s tweet asking fans to put forward their questions for a Q&A with Conte, a recurring theme appeared.

Plenty wondered why the Italian coach has given so little game time to Batshuayi, who found the back of the net 17 times for Marseille in Ligue 1 last season.
