The 23-year-old had been on the pitch for a total of three minutes when he inadvertently nodded the ball past his own goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to put Tottenham back on level terms.
The Belgian’s blushes were spared just moments later, however, when Marcos Alonso popped up with the winner with just a few minutes left on the clock, but his own goal didn’t go amiss from a rival player.
Batshuayi’s former Marseille team-mate and now Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy took to twitter to hail his ‘bullet header’ and poked some fun in the direction of his friend.
It is not the first time that Mendy has taken to social media to mock an own goal, doing the same when Brighton’s Lewis Dunk nodded past his own keeper in City’s 2-0 win over the Seagulls.
The Frenchman was criticised by both Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard over the tweet that time around, so he better hope that he doesn’t stick one in the back of his own net himself at some point!
