Chelsea have brought their Premier League campaign back on track with a win against Watford after a few hiccups during the past couple of weeks. The Blues won the match 4-2 and one of the heroes of the match was undoubtedly Michy Batshuayi. The Belgian came off the bench on Saturday to score a brace that eventually helped Chelsea bag all the three points.
And with those goals, the 24-year-old has cemented himself as one of the key members of Antonio Conte’s squad. The forward has also set an incredible record that no other player can boast in the Premier League right now. According to football pundit Tony Cascarino, Michy Matshuayi now holds the record of scoring a goal every 60.57 minutes – a record that even the likes of Thierry Henry and Sergio Aguero don’t have.
In his column with the Times, Cascarino also laid emphasis on the fact why the player is a genuine threat to the opposition and that Michy is the perfect definition of a modern day super sub.
Cascarino said,”I’ve heard an awful lot about what Michy Batshuayi cannot do but the one thing he can do is score goals and his record of one goal every 60.57 minutes makes him the most deadly striker in Premier League history.
“OK, he has only scored seven so far but, among players who have scored more than five, nobody has scored more often – and that includes legends such as Thierry Henry, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Sergio Aguero.
“Batshuayi is a throwback to the days of the super sub.
“These days you rarely send a player on with any expectation that they are going to score.
“Batshuayi offers a genuine threat and he should be appreciated.”
