Batshuayi expected to miss remainder of the season

Michy Batshuayi is expected to miss the remainder of the season after suffering an ankle injury against Schalke on Sunday.

Belgium international Batshuayi, on loan at Borussia Dortmund from Chelsea, was taken off on a stretcher late on in the Ruhr derby.

The 24-year-old’s domestic season looks over but Dortmund say it is still “possible” he could recover from the injury in time for the World Cup. 

Batshuayi has scored nine times in 14 games since joining Dortmund on loan in the winter transfer window in a deal that runs out at the end of this campaign.
