Although Maurizio Sarri’s start to life in West London has gone well, Chelsea’s striker situation is a concern.
Olivier Giroud has struggled to score, but his linking play is excellent.
Alvaro Morata has been very up and down, and his attitude suggests his time at Stamford Bridge is short.
The Blues have been linked to big money moves for strikers like Mauro Icardi and Krzysztof Piątek, but Michy Batshuayi is still on their books.
Although his time at Stamford Bridge has been very stop-start, many fans believe he’s their long-term striker.
And he showed his class last night for Belgium as he scored two goals for Belgium in the Nations League which helped them beat Iceland.
Batshuayi usually has to settle for a spot on the bench for Beligum behind Romelu Lukaku.
But in Lukaku’s absence, Batshuayi really stepped up and showed Chelsea what they’re missing.
So, here’s how Chelsea fans reacted to Batshuayi’s double for Belgium against Iceland:
Eden Hazard and Batshuayi, we feast.
These 2 have to link up again at Chelsea next season. pic.twitter.com/wTCLnGY4m6

Batshuayi proven match winner at Chelsea on a number of occasions, scored at the World Cup. People said Barkley, Pedro & Loftus Cheek aren’t good enough and have all improved under Sarri. We have nothing to lose #cfc
