Chelsea loanee was in action for Crystal Palace on Saturday in the FA Cup – and many of the Blues fans were pleased with his performance.
The 25-year-old scored with a composed finish into the bottom corner after pinching possession and showed his clinical instincts.
But he ended up on the losing side in the FA Cup quarter-final, as Palace lost away to Premier League rivals Watford 2-1 with Andre Gray scoring the winner.
Batshuayi moved to Palace in January on loan for the rest of the season and has now scored three goals in eight appearances for the across all competitions.
The Belgian centre-forward has had a number of loan exits during his time at Stamford Bridge, but some feel he deserves another shot next year in their first team.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri will surely be well aware of the loanee and it will be interesting to see if he can do enough at Palace to earn a lifeline.
He’s managed to force his way into the starting XI for Palace and will now hope to make an impact in the remaining league games after exiting the cup.
Here are some of the Chelsea fans that were impressed by Batshuayi’s latest display and feel he needs to be recalled for next season:

I still think Chelsea should have recalled batshuayi instead of loaning Higuain

I get he’s not a starter, but the fact we can’t use this guy for the last year and a half is mind-boggling. Rumors say we r selling him but I’d like him @ChelseaFC 1st team for one more yr #CFC https://t.co/lJ8EKWpdET
