Batshuayi Ready To Capitalise On Morata Injury

1 Min Read

Michy Batshayi is prepared to capitalise on the injury sustained by Alvaro Morata and intends to impress in his absence.

The Spain international striker sustained a hamstring injury in the 1-0 loss to Manchester City and is expected to be out for over a month.

Batshuayi has been a fringe player since his arrival at Chelsea, but is prepared to stake a claim in the absence of Morata.

“It sounds strange to say, but someone’s bad luck is sometimes the happiness of the other,” he told Sky Sports News.

“I know that I will have more playing opportunities in the coming weeks. It’s up to me to show that I’m capable. I know Conte has confidence in me. Otherwise, he would have let me leave.

“It’s a chance for me. If I’m called on, I want to be ready and efficient. I have to stay really focused.

“I’ve already started games at Chelsea and played well. I’m an efficient striker, but I’m not a joker.”
