Chelsea fans take aim at Arsenal star following Batshuayi brace

Supporters of Chelsea have this evening taken to social media to point the finger at Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette, after Michy Batshuayi found the net twice in the FA Cup versus Newcastle.


The Blues welcomed Rafael Benitez's men to Stamford Bridge earlier today, having managed just 2 wins from their previous 7 across all competitions (1 of which came via penalties vs Norwich).

Further pressure was piled on already under-fire Chelsea boss Antonio Conte when his side were ousted from the Carabao Cup by London rivals Arsenal during the week, making the need for a win this afternoon even greater for the hosts.

Newcastle, meanwhile, had their 4-match unbeaten run snapped by runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City last weekend.



Despite coming into proceedings on the back of a hugely-disappointing recent run of form, hosts Chelsea made short work of Newcastle this afternoon, with a brace from Michy Batshuayi followed by a stunning Marcos Alonso free-kick to send the Blues into the FA Cup's 5th round.


Batshuayi was handed another start in the absence of Alvaro Morata, as the Spaniard continues to struggle with a back injury, with the former taking full advantage of his opportunity.

The Belgian's double meant that he has now notched an impressive 10 goals across all competitions this season, despite hugely limited time on the pitch.

And his second this afternoon actually meant that Batshuayi has found the net once more than first-choice Arsenal hitman Alexandre Lacazette, a statistic which Chelsea's fans were eager to highlight on Twitter in the aftermath of their side's victory:

It should be noted that the majority of Batshuayi's game-time has come versus lesser opposition in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, while Lacazette has featured predominantly in the Premier League for Arsenal.
