Crystal Palace fans react to display from loaned-out Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi

Loaned-out Chelsea man Michy Batshuayi was on the scoresheet in the Premier League on Monday – and some Crystal Palace fans on Twitter raved about him following his display.

Batshuayi, who is on a season-long loan at London rivals Palace from Chelsea, scored just his second goal of the campaign yesterday.

The 27-year-old centre-forward netted a late equaliser during his side’s 1-1 draw against Everton in a league fixture. 

He was an unused substitute in the previous five league games for Palace, but made an impact with a goal during his brief cameo off the bench against Everton.

It was a precise low finish from the Belgian striker, who will be hoping for more opportunities now to impress in Roy Hodgson’s squad.

A selection of Palace supporters on social media hailed the Chelsea-owned frontman for his goalscoring contribution. 

He’s scored 25 goals in 77 Chelsea first-team appearances, which included a strike that clinched the 2016/17 Premier League title under then-manager Antonio Conte, but he’s not quite been able to nail down a starting position at Stamford Bridge.

If he could improve his all-round game, then he’s got the makings of a top player given how precise his finishing can be around the penalty area.
