Conte needs to give these 2 fringe Chelsea players a chance in the second-half of the season
Michy Batshuayi has been receiving a lot of attention recently for his lack of game time, and in truth – a lot of it is justified.
Whenever the Belgian has played he has looked good, be it from the bench or from the start – but Conte just doesn’t seem to rate him.
He hasn’t been given much of a chance this season, and whilst Diego Costa has done well and prevented Batshuayi from really gaining a foothold – the Spaniard’s injury record is clear for all to see. All it would take it for Costa to miss a few games and Conte would have very few options beyond an inexperienced Batshuayi.
Conte needs to start utilising the Belgian and embedding him in the team – or he could see the Blues’ title challenge go up in flames.
