Batshuayi is of course earning a stellar reputation for his activity on social media, having engaged in some great banter with EA Sports in the past, concerning his rating in FIFA 18.
And with the 24-year-old expected to deputise for the injured Alvaro Morata over the next few weeks, everyone seems to be talking about whether Batshuayi can step up to the plate.
However, why Villa are talking about the Chelsea front man on their official website is anyone’s guess…
Villa’s social media team uploaded a story on Batshuayi, praising the former Marseille man for his latest exploits on Twitter.
And while the player was grateful for the nod, he has no idea why another club is talking about him:

Thx but .. Why you do this ??♂️?
— Michy Batshuayi (@mbatshuayi) October 6, 2017
And it appears he wasn’t the only one scratching his head:
We have a 12 year old running our Twitter ?

Villa currently sit in seventh spot in the Championship table, having struggled for a consistent thread of form in the early months of the season.
