Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi was more clinical than Premier League golden boot winner Harry Kane last season, the West London club's former winger Pat Nevin has claimed.
Nevin, a former Scotland international who played for Chelsea for five years from 1983, also backed the Belgian to be the champions' main man up front this year, despite the arrival of Spain striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid for a club-record fee.
With Diego Costa heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge before the end of the transfer window, Nevin said that 23-year-old Batshuayi was the ideal man to spearhead Chelsea's title defence.

'Look at the numbers and you see what he (Batshuayi) is all about. His goals per minutes played ratio even last season was easily the best at the club and among the best in the league,' he said on the club's website.
