No Broken Leg/Ankle For Chelsea Striker Michy Batshuayi

Reus played the full game for Borussia at the Veltins-Arena, and despite going close on a number of occasions, was left hugely frustrated at the final whistle of a Revierderby in which, by his own admission, Dortmund fell well below their usual standards.

Konoplyanka struck early in the second half with his third Bundesliga goal of the season, the winger beating Roman Burki with a powerful strike after great work from full-back Daniel Caligiuri.

Michy Batshuayi has been admitted to hospital for scans on a suspected ankle injury sustained in Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 defeat to Schalke on Sunday.

Coach Domenico Tedesco celebrated with fans in the stands.

Dortmund dropped to fourth, the last qualification place for the Champions League, five points ahead of Hoffenheim, Eintracht Frankfurt and Leipzig.

A dipping Reus free-kick called Fahrmann into action in the 24th minute, but the Schalke captain made a comfortable save high to his right.

Konoplyanka's effort proved a sighter as he hammered Schalke in front in the 50th minute.

Yevhen Konoplyanka scored the opening goal after a Marcel Schmelzer error.

Batshuayi could be set to return to Chelsea for treatment.

Batshuayi appeared to roll his left ankle following a challenge from Schalke's Benjamin Stambouli, before being stretchered off deep into added time as Dortmund finished the contest with ten men.
