Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi is desperate to transfer his form for his country to his club after the international break.
Batshuayi scored both of Belgium’s goals in a 2-1 friendly win over Switzerland on Wednesday – converting both of his attempts of the game.
The 27-year-old took his tally to 21 goals for Belgium, with five of those coming in his last three games for the Red Devils.
However, it has been a different story in the Premier League with Batshuayi, who is on loan at Crystal Palace from Chelsea, yet to find the net in five games this season.
“Why do I score so easily here? That’s a question I ask myself,” Batshuayi told RTL Sport.
“It’s a bit annoying but I don’t think about the past, I’m going forward. Personally, it feels good to score two goals.
“It shows that I have qualities, I have to try to perform well in the club as in the national team.”

Belgium’s win was a fortunate one, as they managed a total of seven shots in total compared to Switzerland’s 12.
The Swiss also enjoyed more possession – 51.5 per cent to 48.5 per cent – and completed more passes (632 to 594) as well as winning more duels (40 to 38)
Batshuayi felt it was a challenging game for Roberto Martinez’s side, with many of their stellar names rested ahead of their Nations League clash with England on Sunday.
“It was difficult, it’s a team that is very physical. We knew that from last year when they eliminated us in the Nations League,” added Batshuayi.
“It’s a good test match for newcomers and for me. The thing to remember is that there were a lot of new players.
“They listened very well to the coach’s instructions and it really feels good to win this kind of victory.”
