Watch As Romelu Lukaku Stings Arsenal Into Relegation Zone At Emirates Stadium [VIDEO] —World’s most expensive player, Lukaku has showed off his strength after leading Chelsea to a 2 Nil victory against Arsenal at Emirates stadium on Sunday.

Romelu Lukaku scored his first ever Chelsea goal – al­most a decade after his debut – as Thomas Tuchel’s team deservedly beat Arsenal.

Lukaku, who was at Chel­sea as a teenager, started at the Emirates after his £97.5m signing from Inter Milan and looks to have given the Blues an ominous new dimension.

His hold-up and link-up play caused Arsenal problems all day – and the Belgian duly gave them the lead.

Lukaku was involved in the build-up and then finished the move from close range into an empty net from Reece James’ pass.

James got the second him­self as he slammed the ball into the roof of the net from Mason Mount’s pass to make it two wins from two in the league.

Lukaku almost made it 3-0 but his header was tipped onto the bar by Bernd Leno.

Arsenal, missing cen­tre-back Ben White through COVID, have now lost more London derbies in the En­glish Premier League (EPL) this season than last – after just two games.

It is only the third time Ar­senal have lost their opening two EPL matches in a season. The one thing they lacked last season was a prolific goalscor­er – but they now have that in Lukaku.

Five days short of a decade after his Chelsea debut, this was his 16th appearance for the club – having been at West Brom, Everton, Manchester United and Inter Milan in the interim.

And he gives the Blues a focal point up top and the clinical finisher that they have missed.
