Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi continued his good form for current employers Crystal Palace with a goal against Watford in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
Batshuayi, who has already scored more Premier League goals than he managed in La Liga with Valencia, has shown early signs of revival at Selhurst Park. The world-class goalscorer within the Belgian still remains.
It is unclear whether anything he does at Crystal Palace will have any bearing on Maurizio Sarri’s decision come the summertime, but Batshuayi can’t be harming his chances of making it at Chelsea with his recent performances.
Batshuayi scored an excellent goal for Palace earlier this afternoon, making it a memorable day for himself, even if his side were eliminated by a goal from late substitute Andre Gray.

Our striker situation has scarcely looked more precarious. We have two strikers in our squad: one is on-loan, the other has just a few months left on his contract.
This is the perfect opportunity for Batshuayi, and Tammy Abraham, to show us what they can do. With every game they’re essentially auditioning for a striker spot at Chelsea.
