“Starting on the bench is a difficult moment for me but I stay focused every day to work hard and train hard,” Batshuayi said. “Today I did my job and scored two goals.”
[ RECAP: Chelsea 4-2 Watford ]
Sure did. Batshuayi replaced an Alvaro Morata who perhaps got a bit caught up in the snippy side of a chippy 4-2 win over visiting Watford on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.
The victory relieved some pressure from Antonio Conte, who admitted in the run up to the game that he felt it. After the win?
“My players showed me that we have the attitude to fight and change the situation and get a different result. It was very important. It is not simple because we are facing difficult situations but the spirit and commitment is right. I’m satisfied for the performance.”
It was a heck of a morning for Batshuayi, who took two of his chances and wasn’t put off by several moments where he could’ve done something special but failed to find the right footing.
As for Conte, he’ll feel better ahead of a League Cup visit from Everton and a league trip to Bournemouth.
