Michy Batshuayi makes instant impact for Crystal Palace

BY MATT WOOSNAM
New Crystal Palace striker Michy Batshuayi only spent a day training with his team-mates before coming off the bench to help them to victory over Fulham on Saturday.

The Belgian is on loan from Chelsea after joining on deadline day, and he made an instant impact, helping to get an important second goal, with some superb skill and a shot which was saved only to be tucked in by Jeffrey Schlupp

He said: “It’s very important [the win], it’s good for the team and for me. I feel good, but I need to train with the team so to have the whole team together will be something that’s good.

“Today, [I was] with the team yes, but I spent one day before training and with the coach.”

The Eagles’ new boy was impressive despite only a brief cameo, coming on with just eight minutes to go, and continued to link up well with his team-mates in attack.

He insisted that once he is up to speed following more training and match practice, he would be at the top of his game.

“I’m going to bring as much as I can to help the team win and get some game time to be at my best.”
