Batshuayi puts Chelsea future on ice

Batshuayi puts Chelsea future on ice

Borussia Dortmund snatched a dramatic 3-2 win against Atalanta at the Westfalenstadion, as Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi scored a last-gasp victor.

However, since his move to Germany, the Belgium global forward has scored five goals in his first three starts, including a brace in the 3-2 victory over Atalanta during their UEFA Europa League clash on Thursday evening.

The Belgium global was used as nothing more than a fringe player during his first 18 months at Stamford Bridge, starting a combined four Premier League games.

Dortmund hit back midway through the second period, though, as Batshuayi scored in the 65th and 91st minutes to give the two-time runners-up a precious lead in the tie.

Since leaving America in 2016 to sign for Dortmund, Pulisic has become a big player in the Bundesliga, attracting attention from a number of clubs from across Europe. But when you play in the Premier League, Champions League and the FA Cup three strikers is the minimum. "The stadium helped us a lot", Dortmund's midfielder Julian Weigl said. Not sure we've ever seen such power from him in a Chelsea shirt; awesome what a bit of confidence will do for a player.

However, Batshuayi levelled and snatched victory at the death with his seventh goal in four matches.

Batshuayi netted a respectable ten goals in all competitions despite his sporadic involvement, but that couldn't save him from being shipped out to Dortmund in a move some thought could spell the end of his Chelsea career.

"Michy is a real goal-scorer, it was a good move to bring him here", Dortmund coach Peter Stoeger said. "They looked very nervous and we took advantage of it". "He is well liked, fully integrated and our goals and his personal goals align".

The striker's long-term future at Chelsea remains unclear with concerns about Antonio Conte leaving in the summer. Batshuayi is happy and, most importantly, is scoring goals.
