Chelsea striker Batshauyi: Great to play with ex-BVB teammate Pulisic

Chelsea striker Michy Batshauyi is delighted to be reunited with his former Borussia Dortmund teammate Christian Pulisic.

Batshauyi's first league goal of the campaign, at Southampton, stemmed from a fine Christian Pulisic pass, and the pair's celebration that followed suggested it was not the first time they had been in sync on a football pitch.

"We decided we had to do something when we scored or we did an assist for the other – it took us about two minutes to come up with!

"I know Christian from Borussia Dortmund. We always stayed in touch and then he came here," said the 26-year-old to chelseafc.com.

"He is a very good person, very simple, he works a lot, and when he plays, assists or scores I am very happy for him, as he is for me too."
