Michy Batshuayi to be punished on Social Media after Everton win

Chelsea 2 – Everton 1
Chelsea progressed through to the quarterfinals of the League Cup on Wednesday night.

The Blues beat Everton 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

A looping header from Antonio Ruediger gave Chelsea a 26th minute lead, while Willian made sure of the victory with Chelsea’s second in the 90th minute.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored a late consolation for Everton in injury time.

Michy Batshuayi v the post
Antonio Conte shuffled his troops for the Everton game That meant Alvaro Morata was left on the bench while Michy Batshuayi started up front.

Batshuayi, of course, scored a double last weekend in the comeback win over Watford.

During the Everton match, Batshuayi suffered one significant blow when he slid into the post.

Thankfully the Chelsea striker avoided any serious injury.

Punishment after Everton
After the cup tie, Batshuayi took to social media to celebrate Chelsea’s win.

On the issue of his collision with the post, Batshuayi joked that the post should have been sent off.

But will Batshuayi get in trouble for posting unlicensed video content on his social media account?

In this day and age it is some surprise that a Premier League footballer would put video content up of match footage on social media.

Going by social media’s usual policy, Batshuayi will now likely see the video removed and receive a strike against his Twitter and Instagram account (he shared the clip on both platforms).

Thx for the messages ! Im good ahah probably better than the post 🤷🏾‍♂️😂 #straightredtho

Not a huge deal for a multi millionaire Premier League footballer, but once it is taken down we doubt Batshuayi will make the same mistake.

It also makes a mockery of copyright law. Surely Batshuayi should be able to upload a clip of himself on social media?!
