Romelu Lukaku breaks Arsenal Legend's record after netting a goal in Chelsea's 2-0 away victory

Belgium national team star Romelu Lukaku has broken Arsenal Legend's record after netting a goal in his team's 2-0 away victory over the Gunners at Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening.

The former Inter Milan football club star was given a starting role by coach Thomas Tuchel and he was able to impress on his debut game, as he guided the team to a deserved victory.

Romelu Lukaku started ahead of Timo Werner and he was able to score a classic goal for his team.

The former Manchester United FC star opened scoring for the Blues in the 15th minutes before Reece James doubled the lead in the 35th minutes to end the first half 2-0.

Chelsea FC tried to score more goals in the second half of the game, but all their efforts were not successful, as the match ended 2-0.

With Romelu Lukaku's goal it means he has scored 114 goals in the English Premier League, and he has broken Ian Wright's record.

"Romelu Lukaku has scored his 114th Premier League goal, overtaking Ian Wright to become the competition's 20th highest scoring player. Lukaku has also become the eighth non-Englishman to score 50+ goals both home and away in the competition."

The former Everton star will now be looking forward to continuing his impressive performance when they play their next game.
