Listened to game on 5live sports extra

Jermaine Beckford co-commentating basically saying Batshuayi is lazy. Think he is on a season loan with a 20m fee being agreed after. Looks like a big waste of money if true

20m fee agreed but no obligation to buy was my understanding. Hence why Chelsea also extended his contract. Shame that he hasn't yet seemed to kick on from his last successful spell.

As someone has already said elsewhere , I would send him back in January and try and get Giroud. Bats simply does not suit the way we play.

It was 'Yours truly' who made those comments!

Not sure exactly what he brings. Offside more often that not. Scores the odd goal against weaker opposition but certainly does not seem to add much. Return to Chelsea as soon as possible I would suggest.

If he was any good he'd be a Chelsea regular by now, yet they can't seem to get rid of him, wonder why?
Offers very little and we'd be mugs to take him permanently.

Our way of playing means we can’t afford the luxury of including Batshuayi consistently even if he scores the odd goal.
He rarely contributes to other aspects of our play.
None of our strikers really tick the boxes of what is required.
Ayew is tenacious and hard working but, despite exceeding expectations last season, is not really good enough to be leading a line in the Premier League.
Benteke is good in the air and has a physical presence, but looks shot at Premier League level as a goalscorer.
Buying what we need seems to be out of our price range.
So it may be case of trying to strike it lucky with a purchase of a Championship or overseas forward.
Oh for a younger Glen Murray .

Seems a great lad but I judge players on what they do on the pitch rather than on Instagram. Offside too often, poor first touch, doesn’t make himself available enough, and while he is supposed to be a decent finisher he had to do better with that golden chance last night. Should not start ahead of Benteke and will hopefully not be a part of our plans beyond this season.

He was poor last night but I think he still has a role to play at the club. He is a poacher basically, so if we are going to get the best out of him we need to get low balls into the box. Riedewald, Eze, Wilf, and to a lesser extent Townsend, are capable of feeding him. He has been inches offside from three goals this season. I'm not suggesting he is worth 20m right now, but he does have 21 goals in 32 games for Belgium and a career history of 1 goal every three appearances in club football at the highest level. Once Zaha is back he and Ayew are going to have to fight for that shirt as right now neither is playing to the best of their ability.

I admit I haven't researched which teams he has scored against in his international career but in recent seasons he has netted against Switzerland,Iceland,San Marino,Cyprus and Kazakhstan all teams who are hardly world beaters.

In terms of his club record, in his last 23 club appearances he has scored a solitary goal and that was against Hull.

So he is good enough to be selected for international duty and gets starts and appearances off the bench for one of the world's best national sides but not good enough for us?

Batshuayi v Benteke

1 Batshuayi won't or can't head the ball
Benteke can and will

2 Batshuayi can't hold the ball up
Benteke can and does , which helps other players
get into the game

3 Batshuayi won't help out the defence
Benteke will and does

4 Batshuayi can't score
Benteke also can't score goals

As Taylors Lovechild says Batshuayi need the ball played into the box . Have we not been saying that in the case of Benteke .
