Michy Batshuayi Scores Brilliant Double In Dortmund's Comeback Vs Atalanta

Emerson Palmieri ready to make Chelsea debut

The 24-year-old took his tally to five in three for his new club with a quite brilliant double against Atalanta in the Europa League on Thursday night as he sets about showing parent club Chelsea what they could have had.

The Belgian worldwide joined BVB during the January transfer window on loan from Chelsea and the expectation was that he would fill the void left by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who joined Arsenal.

He was also the hero of the night in their Europa League clash with Atalanta on Thursday, scoring twice - including a last-minute victor - in the 3-2 win.

The Belgian's temporary switch to Germany allowed Arsenal to complete the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Olivier Giroud to become the big-man Antonio Conte had been craving up front at Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian striker threatens to add more goals in Sunday's German league match at Borussia Moenchengladbach, who have lost their last three games without scoring.

Michy Batshuayi has admitted his frustration at being regularly overlooked for selection at Chelsea before being sent on loan to Borussia Dortmund.

At the time of departing the reigning Premier League champions for Dortmund on loan from 31 January, the forward had still managed a creditable 10 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions in 2017/18.

Borussia Dortmund coach Peter Stoger is not anxious Michy Batshuayi might be priced out of a permanent move to the club if his goal-scoring form continues.

Hazard scored twice that day, but it was Batshuayi's movement and touch in the final third, especially for Chelsea's second, which stood out.

"Michy is a real goalscorer", said Stoger.

"Things are looking good. We would just have liked to avoid that last goal", Atalanta's head coach Gian Piero Gasperini said.

According to the Guardian, West Ham made a bid of £31.5 million for Batshuayi in the summer of 2016 before losing out to Chelsea.

No one at Chelsea or elsewhere could have doubted Batshuayi's scoring ability.
