Arsenal legend Ian Wright has said he would rather have Nigerian-born England U-21 striker Tammy Abraham leading Chelsea’s attack than Michy Batshuayi.
Speaking on BBC ‘s Match of the Day, Wright heavily criticised Batshuayi for lacking a poacher’s instinct and for poor movement off the ball during Chelsea’s 2-1 Premier League defeat by Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Batshuayi, who has scored five goals in all competitions for Chelsea, was given the opportunity to stake a claim for a first-team spot in the absence of summer arrival Alvaro Morata, who is out injured, but failed to make an impact and was substituted off after just 57 minutes.
While on his part, Abraham, on loan to Swansea from Chelsea, scored twice for the Welsh team who beat newly promoted Huddersfield 2-0.
The 21-year old striker who scored 26 goals on loan to Bristol City last season, has been recently linked with a switch to his parents’ country of birth Nigeria but he insists on representing England at senior level.
Nigerian youngster Victor Osimhen made his second substitute appearance in the Bundesliga this season for Wolfsburg who recorded a fourth consecutive draw on Sunday, twice coming from behind to earn a 2-2 draw with Bayer Leverkusen, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Osimhen came on for Belgium striker Divock Origi, who is on loan from Liverpool, in the 84th minute of the draw at the Bay Arena.
