They all count, as the saying goes. Well not quite if it’s in the wrong net, as Michy Batshuayi is finding.

Chelsea are gearing up for the return of Premier League action with a poll to decide their best strikes during August.

With six to choose from, in games against Burnley, Tottenham and Everton, Marcos Alonso’s stunning free kick at Wembley is the favourite for the prize.

But it’s another at Spurs’ temporary home which has gone unrecognised and the Belgian has joked about its whereabouts in the nominations.

Batshuayi headed a Christian Eriksen free-kick delivery into his own net to level the scores against the title rivals, only for Alonso to pop up again to seal the win late on.

A strong header at the near post, it’s a goal most would be proud of – at the correct end – and Batshuayi is curious as to why he isn’t getting the plaudits he feels it deserves.

“Where’s my header against Tottenham?” he replied to Chelsea’s Instagram post.

More of the same up the other end and you might be in with a shout, Michy.

In the meantime, watch the nominated goals below…
