Michy Batshuayi is aiming to “bring as much as he can” to Crystal Palace after playing his first eight minutes for the club against Fulham at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
The Eagles soared as they notched up a 2-0 win in the London derby and Batshuayi played a part in the second goal off the bench, taking the initial shot before Jeffrey Schlupp put away the rebound.
Palace signed the 25-year-old from Chelsea after La Liga side Valencia cut his loan short in the latter stages of transfer deadline day last week and he told Palace TV, as reported by football.london, that he hopes to show his best form at the club:
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. I feel good, but I need to train with the team and to have the whole team together will be something that’s good.
Roy Hodgson will be hoping the Belgium international will continue to improve as time goes on considering he only trained for the first time on Friday afternoon.
If his time at Selhurst Park goes to plan and Chelsea don’t require his services again at the end of the season, there will undoubtedly be talk of a potential permanent move to Palace.
