Lukaku already reigns in London

Colossal landing in London, including a great goal against an Arsenal that inexorably capsizes another season, and a true display of what the Belgian can give to the 'blues'.

Lukaku may have cost Chelsea € 115 million, but it only took Lukaku 15 minutes to prove that he is worth every penny that has been paid for him. Colossal landing in London, including a great goal against an Arsenal that inexorably capsizes another season, and a true display of what the Belgian can give to the 'blues'. Physical presence, speed, strength, combination and above all goal. Much goal. Guaranteed fun this year in the west of the capital.

The derby, however, comes out as many praised as pointed out. If Lukaku and Reece James do it on their shoulders, others like Holding and especially Tierney have done it through the back door. Terrifying game by the left-back, surpassed at all times by his pair, who saw how the goals always came down his lane. The question remains, however, whether Arteta should have bet on a defense of three to stop the effect of the Belgian, but Ben White's last-minute positive for coronavirus made it even more difficult.

Lukaku, who was keen to make his mark in his first match, was quick to leave a taste of what he can deliver. He controlled from behind, attracted rivals to create space, teamed up with his teammates and finally finished at pleasure. Fifteen minutes and he had them all in his pocket. The biggest beneficiary of that gravitational effect of the forward was Reece James, who gave him the assist without almost opposition and who scored the second at pleasure before the break.

Although the 'Gunners' improved, it was an illusion, because when they were not dominated they crashed into the Chelsea defense. And Lukaku, always Lukaku, continually kept Arteta's men in check, who saw helplessly as he headed a ball at point-blank range against Leno, who, nevertheless, took out a colossal hand to deflect it to the crossbar.
