LONDON – Belgian footballer Romelu Lukaku made a successful renewed debut in the London Chelsea jersey. In Sunday’s 2nd round of the Premier League at Arsenal, he opened the score in the 15th minute and helped to win 2-0 over the city rival.

The 28-year-old finisher returned to Stamford Bridge before the season, when Chelsea paid 115 million euros for Milan’s Inter, a record club transfer. Lukaku has not started in the first round against Crystal Palace (3: 0), as he was in quarantine, he was already available in the derby against Arsenal. Coach Thomas Tuchel put him in the basic line-up and Lukaku presented himself with a solid performance, which crowned him with an opening goal. “I’d say he was dominant,” a robust striker commented on his performance: “We knew it would be a very important match for us. Everyone watched us closely and we passed this test.”

Lukaku was a Chelsea player in 2011-2014, but he did not make a significant impact in her staff. However, leaving for Everton, a two-year stop at Manchester United and working at Interi Milan “kicked” his career and returned to West London as the most expensive player in the club’s history. “I tried my best to help the team as much as possible. I wanted to contribute something special and I believe I succeeded. I would like to continue.” he said after his successful “comeback”.

Historically the best scorer of the Belgian national team scored up close to an open goal after a pass by Reeca James. He also had his fingers in the second goal of “The Blues”, when he went to fight for the ball in front of the penalty area, which pulled out Arsenal’s defense, and this opened the way for Mason Mount, who called for James to score. “He’s already shown his value to the team. They got along very well with Mason and Kai Havertz up front,” evaluated Lukaku’s performance coach Tuchel.

While Chelsea did not collect a maximum of 6 points in the first two league appearances, her city juice Arsenal is still looking for a game. After an initial loss of 0: 2 on the pitch of the newcomer Brentford, he lost the same score in the second match and remains without a point in the table. The “Gunners” will have it challenging in the next round, in which they will present themselves on the field of the reigning champion of Manchester City. “Chelsea has shown why she won the Champions League. Her players can concentrate and play at the highest level throughout the match,” noted Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta. “It’s one of the difficult moments we have to get through. We’re facing really tough circumstances, but self-pity won’t help us. You have to face criticism.” he was quoted by the AP agency.

In the next match, the Manchester United players drew 1: 1 on Southampton. The home side put themselves ahead 1 – 0 after 55 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from Mason Greenwood, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. The “Red Devils” equaled the Premier League record thanks to a draw. They have not lost 27 matches on the opponents’ pitches, which so far only Arsenal has managed to do between April 2003 and September 2004.
