Michy Batshuayi brilliantly trolls West Ham fan on Twitter

Published 2 Comments

Michy Batshuayi has wasted no time in winning over Chelsea fans with his entertaining antics on social media.

The Blues striker has recently taken to Twitter to express his discontent with EA Sports after learning of his rating in the upcoming FIFA 17 video game.

Batshuayi has been given a passing ability of 59 out of 100 – a value he firmly believes is a misrepresentation of his real-life skills.

EA Sports responded to his comment by cheekily suggesting that “practice makes perfect”, to which the Belgian followed up with a brilliant threat to download to rival football sim Pro Evolution Soccer instead of this year’s FIFA .

Batshuayi’s amusing reaction garnered more than 19,000 likes, but one West Ham failed to see the funny side of it.

The Hammers supporter accused Batshuayi of “downloading money” and rather than ignoring him or her, the 22-year-old opted to return fire.

In one tweet, the latest Blues favourite shut down the trolling West Ham fan with a reply that read: “Do you need attention in your life or ? Get friends my bro your in Chelsea zone”.

Batshuayi’s sly dig elicited an outpouring of support from the Stamford Bridge faithful, who are already taking a liking to their summer signing despite him having played just 34 minutes of Premier League football to date.

The Belgium international has netted twice for his new club since joining from Marseille for £33 million, but is yet to show any signings of supplanting Diego Costa as first-choice striker.

Batshuayi has shown numerous positive signs during the limited action he has seen in a blue shirt, linking up well in attack with Costa, Oscar, Willian and compatriot Eden Hazard.

The powerful forward looks a perfect fit the Premier League and if his social media game is anything to go by, he already feels right at home.

Does Batshuayi have the best social media game of any Premier League player? Give YOUR opinion in the comment box below!
