Batshuayi Ready To Capitalise On Morata Injury

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.”
