Standard Sport readers may remember that the young Belgian striker had similar grievances over his ratings for Fifa 17.
Batshuayi was particularly concerned about his passing statistics, but admitted that his low defensive ratings were “totally deserved.”
With Fifa 18 set to be released later this month, Batshuayi’s overall rating has dropped from 81 to 80 out of a possible 99, prompting him to get in touch with the game’s developers, EA Sports Fifa.
But Batshuayi’s hopes of a change were swiftly shot down on Twitter, with the reply: “Keep scoring goals and we’ll talk…”.
Batshuayi was not impressed, replying: “Hahaha fair point but I’ve been doing this for quite a long time now… even longer than the last time your servers were OK”.
The 23-year-old followed up an impressive pre-season by rejecting any chance of a temporary loan move and staying to fight for a starting role – a chance he took with a goal against Qarabag in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
But Chelsea team-mate Hazard making the top 10 with an overall score of 90 and Alvaro Morata taking to life at Stamford Bridge all too easily, Batshuayi has a challenge to get enough game time to convince that his virtual stats need a little boost.
