Chelsea beat Atletico Madrid 2-1 in their 2nd game of the Champions League this season, Alvaro Morata cancelled Antoine Griezmann’s opener to set the platform for Chelsea to get home their second successive win of the competition. The game settled down a bit in the second half with the two teams inching towards a 1-1 draw but Chelsea pocketed 3 points with Michy Batshuayi striking the winner for the Blues.

The loss was bitter for Diego Simeone’s men who were ‘tactically, technically and physically’ beaten, as per the manager himself. Diego Costa, former Chelsea and future Atletico Madrid striker was also in the stands, expecting a comfortable outing for the home side against his former club. However, it was Batshuayi, who took a dig at the regular bully after scoring the winner for the Blues.

After the match, the Belgian striker met two of his counterparts from Atletico and posted a picture with them on Twitter. The two other strikers he met were his idol Fernando Torres and former strike partner Diego Costa. Teasing Costa after his side’s loss, Mitchy took to Twitter to post a picture of himself with Torres and Costa and wrote, “Great honour to meet one of the great strikers I used to watch when I was younger… and no I’m not talking about Diego.”

Wait for it, read it again, yes so Batshuayi took a dig at the 28-year-old and clarified that his inspiration as a child was Fernando Torres and not Costa.

Torres who has netted 82 goals in 282 games for Atletico was a Premier League sensation too when he scored 65 goals in 102 appearances for English giants Liverpool.

Here is the tweet:

While Diego Costa is still to play a competitive club game this season, Michy Batshuayi has already scored 2 goals in his 2 appearances for Chelsea in the Champions League. However, the young striker is still to cement his place in the side with Alvaro Morata consistently performing.

Batshuayi also took an aim at FIFA in a funny banter and ranted about his ratings:

here is another one from past when he scored a hattrick against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup, which proves the Belgium international is all sorts of humorous
