Michy Batshuayi scored twice for Belgium as they romped to a 5-1 over Iceland in their Nations League clash in Brussels to move clear at the top of Group 2.

As reported by Standard Sport on Tuesday, Chelsea striker Batshuayi is set to complete a loan move to Crystal Palace – having spent the second part of the 2018-19 season at Selhurst Park.

The Red Devils, who had beaten Denmark away in their opening League A fixture, fell behind to Holmbert Aron Fridjonsson's deflected goal after 11 minutes.

However, Roberto Martinez's men soon turned the tie around as Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel equalised and Chelsea frontman Batshuayi made it 2-1 after 17 minutes.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne - who had earlier been named the Professional Footballers' Association's player of the year in England - set up a third for Dries Mertens five minutes into the second half.

Batshuayi added a fourth, with 18-year-old Anderlecht forward Jeremy Doku completing the scoring with 10 minutes left.
