Batshuayi has been away from Chelsea on loan playing for Crystal Palace where he has managed two goals and as many assists in 18 Premier League appearances for Crystal palace.

The Belgium striker who moved to Stamford Bridge from Marseille for £33.2m in 2016 was unable to establish himself as a regular in the Chelsea squad.
