Former Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has opened up about his time at the club and listed reasons for not succeeding at Stamford Bridge.
"I can't speak for Romelu Lukaku, but as far as I'm concerned it's clear: the problem was Diego Costa. That was never up for debate. I don't think there was a single player at that time who could have kept him out of the squad.
"In my second season, I played an excellent pre-season and then Álvaro Morata came from Real Madrid. So that became difficult again… and yet I scored every time I was selected in the team.
"It may be strange to say, but the #Chelsea squad was so strong that it was easy to score goals. When you play with such top players, everything becomes easy."
Batshuayi ended up playing only 77 times during his 6 years at Chelsea, most of which he spent on loan, before finally moving on a permanent transfer to Fenerbahce.
