Hodgson threw on the Belgian in the second-half.
"[Batshuayi needs to] keep doing what he's doing, I thought his performance was good," said the manager.
"He was looking to get shots away and, in his brief period of time on the field, he probably had five or six shots. He was certainly working hard to get behind the defence which is what we want from him, we want him getting into those positions. We want him to be confident enough to take on those shots.
"I thought the introduction of Michy and later Max (Meyer) were good additions because they were obviously replacing, in the case of James McArthur, someone who's worked so very hard for 75-odd minutes that it was nice to get the fresh legs and to put on someone who not only had the fresh legs but also had a lot of skill when he was on."
