Romelu Lukaku scores on second Chelsea debut

Romelu Lukaku marked his return to the Chelsea side with a goal as the Blues enjoyed a 2-0 win at Arsenal.

The Belgian striker needed just 14 minutes of his second Chelsea debut to re-open his goalscoring account for the club.

It was a typical Lukaku goal as he did brilliantly to shrug off Pablo Mari before tapping the ball home after Reece James found him with a low cross.

James then got his name on the scoresheet 20 minutes later as he lashed the ball home following good work from Kai Havertz, Marcos Alonso, and Mason Mount.

Arsenal may feel disappointed to have not been given a penalty just before halftime with James appearing to push Bukayo Saka in the box.

The home side improved after the break with Edouard Mendy tipping Saka’s long-range effort over the bar, while Rob Holding headed just wide following a well-worked corner.

But Chelsea was good value for their win and star striker Lukaku was unlucky not to add his second when his header was brilliantly saved onto the bar by Bernd Leno.
