Chelsea picked up a huge Champions League victory on Wednesday night as Michy Batshuayi struck a stoppage-time winner away to Atletico Madrid.
Atletico had led 1-0 in their new stadium courtesy of a penalty from Antoine Griezmann, but Alvaro Morata levelled the scores in the 59th minute, before Batshuayi came up with a strike in the fourth minute of stoppage time at the end of the 90.
Back-up to Diego Costa last season and Morata this, it has not been easy for Batshuayi to earn regular minutes for the Blues following a 2016 move from Marseille.
The 23-year-old has now scored 14 times in 35 appearances for the Blues, however, including two goals in two Champions League matches at the start of the 2017-18 campaign.
Batshuayi, who is rated at £25m by transfermarkt.co.uk, is certainly one of the more interesting characters on social media, and he was active on Twitter after scoring his biggest goal for the club on Wednesday night.
Chelsea then posted an image of the Belgian international from Thursday, and as expected, the club’s supporters were out in force to pay tribute to the striker.
