Chelsea striker Batshuayi pays tribute to injured Ibrahimovic

The Swedish striker is edging his way back from a serious knee injury, with the surgeon who operated on him urging him not to rush his recovery

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has paid tribute to injured Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the club confirmed the Swede would miss the rest of the season.

Kante named PFA Player of the Year

The 35-year-old, who has scored 28 goals in his debut season for the Red Devils, was injured during last week's Europa League quarter-final second-leg win over Anderlecht.

Batshuayi has not enjoyed as much success during his maiden campaign in the English top tier, having failed to make a single Premier League start under Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

The Belgian has struck four goals in seven cup appearances, however, and once in his 17 substitute league outings.
