Batshuayi takes swipe at Conte following Dortmund form

Batshuayi takes swipe at Conte following Dortmund form”

Michy Batshuayi is showing Chelsea exactly what they're missing at the moment with his awesome start to life at Borussia Dortmund.

The former Marseille striker was handed just six minutes off the bench as Chelsea played with Eden Hazard as a false nine. "The bottom line is that the late victor will be a big help to reach the next round".

Batshuayi has made an instant impact and has not allowed Dortmund to feel the absence of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who joined Arsenal last month.

"Michy is a real goal-scorer, it was a good move to bring him here, " Dortmund manager Peter Stoeger said after the 3-2 win.

Now Dortmund hopes for more of his goals, and at the same time fears the prospect of losing this successful striker.

The Gunners were off and running in the round of 32 after just 16 minutes through defender Nacho Monreal, who pounced on a spilled save attempt by Ostersunds goalkeeper Aly Keita and slotted into the gaping net from close range.

"We were up 2-1 and should have done it a bit better".

"We adapted very well because we're at a good technical level". He is the only American played in a senior UEFA competition.

Stoger told his post-Europa League press conference: "He has quickly integrated into the team".

Chelsea, on the other hand, are struggling with their league form, having been defeated in their last two out of three matches.

Atletico Madrid overcame an early deficit in Denmark and strolled to a 4-1 win over Copenhagen.

Saul Niguez and Kevin Gameiro scored before half-time, with Antoine Griezmann and Vitolo wrapping up victory.

Before moving to Germany, the Belgian striker had scored only twice in 12 Premier League appearances for Chelsea this season.

Serie A leaders Napoli have it all to do, though, after Germany worldwide Timo Werner's second-half brace led RB Leipzig to a shock 3-1 win in Italy.

Leipzig are a distant second to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga. On-loan Sunderland forward Fabio Borini added the final goal in a 3-0 win over Ludogorets in Bulgaria.
