Romelu Lukaku Vs Arsenal performance yesterday as he singles handled the Gunners side with some great display despite his first appearance after just completing his move during the week.
It was an amazing encounter between the two London sides which took place on Sunday with Chelsea running riots once again against the Gunners as they did in the Preseason friendly encounter last month.
The match began with Chelsea taking the lead in the 15th minute as Romelu Lukaku Vs Arsenal bullied their defense to get the opening goal after a lovely pass from Reece James inside the box of the Gunners who failed to cover up.
It was all about the Belgian troubling the defense all through the game as he made many attempts on goal which proved difficult going in as the game progressed with Chelsea dominating play and ball possession by a long margin.
Reece James double the lead in the 35th minute as he teamed up with Mason Mount who provided the assist for the wing-back who finished off sharply without wasting any time as the scoreline was then 2-0 with more opportunities created.
It was all about the attacking power from the visitors which gave them the advantage against an Arsenal side that didn’t feature new signing Ben White who was ruled out of the encounter at the last minute of kickoff due to some issues.
Romelu Lukaku Vs Arsenal saw the Belgian making more attempts on goal than any player on the pitch as he used his body presence to make himself big in the defense area of the Gunner that couldn’t contain the forward.
He could have made it a brace but his header hit the woodwork and didn’t make it past the goalkeeper who also did had a hand in the ball that saw it missing the target as the match was looking like a one-sided affair.
After the game the 28 year old was showered with praises by the manager and some ex players with Drogba sending a cryptic message to the player who scored against a side the Ivorian was known to cause havoc anytime he plays against them.
Thomas Tuchel also have some few words to say which he said; “We signed him to play, not to come off the bench,” he told Sky Sports pre-match when asked whether Lukaku was ready to start despite having had just five days’ training with his new team-mates.
The forward also described his performance against Arsenal as “Dominant” which was exactly what he showed and did all through as he was the man who made sure the Gunners were on their toes with Mikel Arteta confused.
It could have been more goals if care wasn’t taken in the match as Romelu Lukaku Vs Arsenal performance was extraordinary for a player making his first start after making a switch from a different football League.
A great game many will say as the Blues are now seating top of the English Premier League table with two wins and a clean sheet from two games as Liverpool follows behind with them winning both games also so far this season.
