Chelsea midfielder Mikel John Obi: Batshuayi a great, great prospect

Chelsea midfielder Mikel John Obi admits Michy Batshuayi is happy keeping to himself in the locker room.

The Belgium international has scored three goals in five appearances and team-mate Mikel has admitted he's been impressed by the 22-year-old.

“He has started well, he looks to me, like a great, great prospect for Chelsea," Mikel told Goal.

"Michy is a great guy. He is a quiet guy who doesn't really speak much, but he is a great guy.

"He is a strong player who is powerful and has scored one or two goals this season."
