Chelsea: Michy Batshuayi takes swipe at Antonio Conte over lack of game time

The Belgian striker has been in terrific form for the Bundesliga club.
His brace against Atalanta in the Europa League, including a last-minute winner, was his fourth and fifth goals for Dortmund.
The 24-year-old has struggled since joining in 2016, making just three Premier League starts this season.
In 53 appearances, mainly from the bench, the former Marseille man has scored 19 times.
That includes a title-clinching strike against West Brom last year and a dramatic last-kick winner against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
Reports have suggested that Conte is set to be axed at the end of the season.
And Batshuayi has twisted the knife on the Italian manager by questioning his decision to loan him out.

He said: ”I don’t know if Conte was watching my game.
"Sitting on the bench, score a goal and then back to the bench is quite difficult to deal with for an attacker.
"It wasn’t always easy at Chelsea.
"I’m now playing with a lot of confidence.
"They are focusing on the Premier League and have an important Champions League tie next week.
"I hope it turns out well for them."
