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.”
