Michy Batshuayi trolls Kepa Arrizabalaga after he concedes by a ball hitting on his face

Michy Batshuayi trolls Kepa Arrizabalaga, over where the Spanish goalkeeper concedes after hitting his face on the ball to make it 3-1.

Kepa Arrizabalaga had a night to forget after certain blunders by him made Chelsea trail against Ajax but it also resulted in a glamorous comeback against Ajax.

But it doesn’t seem that Kepa’s teammate Michy Batshuayi is ready to allow him to forget his mistakes made last night. The Belgian striker made a tweet to pick at Kepa, as he writes. “Welcome to the memes club bro @kepa_46.”

Last night, Hakim Ziyech was monstrous in the first half of the game, and in the process took a free-kick from a tight-angle, which was near the corner end of the pitch.

The ball curls in towards the goal, as the Morrocan International makes a splendid strike. However, amidst all of this, the ball directly hot towards the far-post and hits Kepa’s face on the rebound, and through the impact the ball went inside, embarrassing the 25-year-old keeper.

One can think that Batshuayi over here is empathising with Kepa since the former has also been a victim of severe trolling after he hit face with a ball after kicking it while playing for Belgium.

But to state the misery of Kepa, this was the third goal conceded by him in the span of 35 minutes, and it was awarded as an own-goal to him to make his embarrassment even worse.

It didn’t end soon, as Ajax was soon able to score the fourth goal soon in the second half. From here, it seemed that Chelsea will not be able to recover but to everyone’s surprise, the Blues scored three goals in the second half to equalize the score and also gained benefit from the two red cards picked by Daley Blind and Joel Veltman.
