Arsenal legend admits he’s afraid of Lukaku ahead of Arsenal vs Chelsea clash

Arsenal were surprisingly beaten by newly promoted Brentford in the season’s opening game last Friday.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has admitted ahead of the game that he is frightened at the thought of Arsenal’s defence facing Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku.

Speaking on Ringer FC’s Wrighty’s House podcast, the former Arsenal striker said: “Since Lukaku was linked, Romelu’s been talking to me on a consistent basis, so I know it’s happening but I have to keep quiet.

“All the time I thinking this is fine, but when I see how Arsenal got beat against Brentford knowing that Romelu will be there.

“I knew that this was going to happen, watching how we play, seeing how Ivan Toney and Mbuemo dealt with our defence, let’s face it Lukaku with the players he now has, it’s going to be devastating against most defences.”

Romelu Lukaku was out of quarantine days ago, but the players have a day off according to Sky Sports. Lukaku was expected to be in training a day after he was out of quarantine and will be in the squad for Arsenal.

Romelu Lukaku says he's ready to make his debut against Arsenal if Thomas Tuchel selects him. Romelu Lukaku could be about to bully Arsenal on Super Sunday but there is much more to Chelsea's new signing than that. Romelu Lukaku tells the Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge that he will 'do his best' against Arsenal.

Romelu Lukaku told Chelsea that he told Kai Havertz to move to the club two years ago, and that he is ready to play and likes that the first game will be a big away game against Arsenal.
